Ukrainian forces launch Neptune missile at Konstantin Olshansky ship in Crimea:
The Ukrainian army attacked the Konstantin Olshansky landing ship, which the Russian occupation forces stole from Ukraine in 2014 during the annexation of Crimea
This was stated by Dmytro Pletenchuk, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, on the air of the FREEDOM TV channel.
He recalled that the Konstantin Olshansky is a Ukrainian large amphibious assault ship that Russians seized from Ukraine in 2014 during the occupation of Crimea.
The ship had been in the Sevastopol bay for nine years. The Russians began dismantling it for spare parts and looting it.
According to the Navy spokesman, in the 10th year of the war, the occupation army realized that they were running out of large amphibious ships, so they decided to restore the Konstantin Olshansky within a year.
Pletenchuk noted that Russia wanted to present the Minsk or Olenegorsky Gornyak ships, which had been allegedly damaged by Ukraine earlier, as a restoration, but due to the significant damage, the restoration of the ships is questionable.
"This ship was to be used against Ukraine. Therefore, it was decided to hit this unit with our Neptune. The hit was accurate," Pletenchuk said.
He added that the degree of damage to the affected ship is currently being clarified, but it is definitely not combat-ready. --->READ MORE HERE

Ukrainian navy says a third of Russian warships in the Black Sea have been destroyed or disabled:
Ukraine has sunk or disabled a third of all Russian warships in the Black Sea in just over two years of war, the navy spokesman said Tuesday, a heavy blow to Moscow’s military capability.
Ukraine’s Navy spokesman Dmytro Pletenchuk told The Associated Press that the latest strike on Saturday night hit the Russian amphibious landing ship Kostiantyn Olshansky that was resting in dock in Sevastopol in Russia-occupied Crimea. The ship was part of the Ukrainian navy before Russia captured it while annexing the Black Sea peninsula in 2014.
Pletenchuk has previously announced that two other landing ships of the same type, Azov and Yamal, also were damaged in Saturday’s strike along with the Ivan Khurs intelligence ship.
He told the AP that the weekend attack, which was launched with Ukraine-built Neptune missiles, also hit Sevastopol port facilities and an oil depot.
Russian authorities reported a massive Ukrainian attack on Sevastopol over the weekend but didn’t acknowledge any damage to the fleet.
Pletenchuk said that with the latest attack, a third of all warships that Russian had in the Black Sea before the war have been destroyed or disabled. At the same time, he acknowledged that just two of about a dozen of Russian missile carrying warships have been sunk and pledged that Ukraine will continue the strikes.
“Our ultimate goal is complete absence of military ships of the so-called Russian Federation in the Azov and Black Sea regions,” Pletenchuk told the AP. --->READ MORE HERE
