Wow, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet. That’s going to be a huge morale booster to the Ukrainians.

Even Russia cannot hide its flagship sinking, it seems

The Russian official position is that the Ukrainians did not in fact strike their flagship with a pair of anti-ship missiles but that their flagship just… exploded for no reason…. ​ I’m not sure which would be funnier.

But don’t worry, it was gross negligence, not hostile action that sank her. Another PR victory for the Russian Armed Forces.

*Moskva, the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet, was being towed to port when “stormy seas” caused it to sink, according to a ministry message.* Lol, first they claimed it was just a fire, now they said it sunk because of a storm. Russia is a laughing stock.
