Russia’s flagship Black Sea missile cruiser has been seriously damaged and its crew forced to evacuate.
Russia’s defence ministry, which disclosed that ammunition on the Moskva exploded in an unexplained fire, said that the 186-metre vessel was still afloat.
The 510-crew warship has led Russia’s naval assault on Ukraine, making it an important symbolic and military target.
In the meantime, Ukraine claims its forces struck the vessel with Neptune missiles.
