Ukrainian Military Claims Russian Naval Commanders Killed in Sevastopol Attack
In a significant development, the Ukrainian military has asserted that Russian naval commanders were among the casualties of an attack specifically aimed at the Port of Sevastopol on the 23rd. A brief statement released today by the Ukrainian army confirmed the death and injury of their own commanders in the assault, yet additional details remain undisclosed. It is worth mentioning that Russia had previously reported one soldier missing in the attack.
Known as the pinnacle fleet of the Russian Navy, the fleet based in the Port of Sevastopol holds an esteemed position within the military force. From a trusted source within the Ukrainian military, it has come to light that the attack utilized Stormshadow missiles, supplied by both Britain and France.
According to an official Ukrainian military statement, the attack resulted in numerous fatalities and injuries, including several high-ranking commanders of the fleet. Kirillo Budanow, the head of Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence Service, further substantiated this claim, reporting that two Russian naval commanders were injured due to the missile assault.
Simultaneously, on the 23rd, the Sevastopol area once again became a target for aggression. Mikhail Razozaev, the governor of a locally established government in Russia, informed the public that debris from a downed anti-aircraft missile could be found near the port. In response, he ordered an inspection of the shelters available to residents, as concerns have been raised about their accessibility and substandard conditions in the past.
In a reassuring statement, Razozaev emphasized the importance of remaining calm and urged residents not to give in to panic, highlighting that such a reaction would only serve the interests of their adversaries.
