Sunk Russian warship carried military cargo, Ukraine says:
Large landing ship Caesar Kunikov, which was sunk by Ukrainian naval drones in the Black Sea earlier on Feb. 14, was transporting ammunition, Ukrainian Defense Intelligence (HUR) spokesman Andriy Yusov told RFE/RL.
"In this case, the cargo was ammunition, most likely missiles," said Yusov.
He did not specify the exact number of drones that were used to sink the warship but noted that it was roughly comparable to the number deployed during the Feb. 1 attack on Russian missile boat Ivanovets.
“The majority of drones hit their target, despite the ship being on combat duty—that is, ready for potential attacks,” Yusov added.
“It tried to resist, but now we can see that the occupiers cannot effectively cope with such Ukrainian operations.”
In the night of Feb. 14, HUR and the Ukrainian military carried out an operation to destroy large landing ship Caesar Kunikov—hit by Ukrainian-made Magura V5 drones near occupied Alupka, Crimea. According to Ukrainian reports, the ship received critical breaches on the port side and started to sink. Reportedly, 87 crew were on board.
Caesar Kunikov is a Project 775 class warship, which participated in the KFOR operation in Kosovo in 1999, in the war against Georgia, and was involved in supporting the Syrian army. --->READ MORE HERE
