Putin suffers ANOTHER blow as commander of Russian Black Sea ship is killed days after sinking of Moskva flagship
The Sun says VLADIMIR Putin has suffered another blow as the commander of a Russian Black Sea vessel has been killed days after the humiliating sinking of the Moskva flagship.
Captain Alexander Chirva died from wounds sustained in a battle with Ukrainian defenders, said the governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev.
Chirva was commander of the large landing ship Caesar Kunikov, which is part of the Black Sea Fleet.
Razvozhayev failed to give more details about the circumstances of the captain’s death.
There were reports that the Caesar Kunikov was hit by Ukrainian fire on March 24, but it is unclear if this was the incident which led to the captain’s death.
