Moscow admits flagship ‘seriously damaged’ amid claims it was sunk

Euronews says Ukrainian forces in the Odesa region have struck the Russian guided-missile cruiser Moskva with two missiles and caused “serious damage,” governor Maksym Marchenko said on Wednesday night.

Moskva is the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, made infamous during the capture of Ukraine’s Snake Island early on in the war.

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the ship was damaged on early Thursday, but not that it was hit by Ukraine.

The Ministry says ammunition on board detonated as a result of a fire — whose causes “were being established” — and the Moskva’s entire crew was evacuated.
