    A crew member of the Russian warship Moskva appears to be panicking and calling for help before the warship sinks in a new audio recording.  The Ukrainian military claims the clip is from before the 12,490 ton cruiser, the flagship of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, sank.  The crew member can be heard in the recording saying that the ship has been hit twice and it is now tilting on its side.  Russia has previously claimed that the ship sank on April 14 after an ammunition explosion brought on by a storm.  Ukraine has always claimed it used two R-360 Neptune anti-ship missiles to take down the vessel.  Vladimir Putin's Black Fleet chief, Admiral Igor Osipov, has 'not been seen alive' since the sinking of the Moskva which became infamous for a clip of a Ukrainian soldier telling the Russian warship 'go f*** yourself' at the outbreak of the war.   It is the largest Russian warship to be sunk since World War II and the first of a similar size since ARA General Belgrano during the Falklands War in 1982.  The Ukrainian military published...
    Mystery is growing over the fate of Vladimir Putin's Black Fleet chief, Admiral Igor Osipov, who has 'not been seen alive' since the sinking of the Moskva warship one month ago. There are now suspicions that the commander was on board the vessel when it was hit by Ukrainian Neptune missiles, say Kyiv sources. Initially Ukraine claimed that the admiral was detained amid fury from Putin over the cruiser's sinking. Mystery is growing over the fate of Vladimir Putin's Black Fleet chief, Admiral Igor Osipov (picture date unknown) Other claims were that he had been suspended. This was never confirmed by Russian officials who this week insisted he was at his 'combat post' but 'not in the mood' to face the public. Osipov, 49, was conspicuously absent from the Red Square Victory Day parade on Monday, which he would routinely be expected to attend. He was also nowhere to be seen at events linked to Black Sea Fleet Day this week. At one event on 7 May, he was reported as being present only for his name to be removed...
    This is the incredible moment a Ukrainian drone decimates a Russian patrol boat in the Black Sea. Video recorded by the Bayraktar drone high above Snake Island this morning shows the unmanned vehicle wreck the Raptor attack craft below. It is one of two Russian patrol vessels destroyed this morning, the Ukrainian navy said. Chief of General Staff Valeriy Zaluzhniy wrote on Facebook: 'Two Russian Raptor-class boats were destroyed at dawn today near Zmiinyi (Snake) Island.' The drone's display proves the annihilation took place this morning, military expert Rob Lee tweeted.  Before and after: the Russian Raptor patrol boat was annihilated by Ukrainian artillery fire Mr Zaluzhniy added: 'Bayraktars are working. Together to victory!' Moscow did not respond to the reports. The Turkish-made drone is the same model used in the audacious destruction of Russian flagship the Moskva last month. A Ukrainian naval crew famously told the Moskva as they were urged to surrender near Snake Island: 'Russian warship, go f*** yourself.'

    A little over a week ago reports emerged that the Moskva, the flagship warship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, had sunk. The Moskva was a missile cruiser and, according to Russian state media, the ship had sunk after there was an explosion on board. The news created buzz in the religious community because there are rumors that there was a fragment of the “True Cross” (the cross on which Jesus was crucified) on board at the time. If accurate, this would make the relic-toting warship just one example in a long history in which religious objects have been weaponized in ideological and military conflicts. Back in 2020 the Russian Orthodox Church announced that a reliquary containing a nineteenth century metal cross was about to be delivered to Vice Admiral Igor Osipov, the then-commander of the Black Sea fleet. The cross was special because embedded within it was a small splinter of wood. It had been donated by an anonymous collector. The relic was supposed to have been transferred to the small chapel on board the Moskva. There are numerous questions...
    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian Defense Ministry: 1 sailor died, 27 missing after a fire on the flagship Moskva cruiser; 396 others rescued. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    The relatives of the doomed crew of Russia's Black Sea flagship Moskva defied Russian censors to hold an unofficial memorial today, as Ukraine claimed that all 510 servicemen onboard died - including the ship's captain. Kyiv's claim came after the United States confirmed its belief that Ukraine did in fact launch a missile strike against the Soviet-era missile cruiser, which Russia's defence ministry confirmed had sank on Thursday night because of a fire on board. Ukraine said it launched a missile strike on the Moskva from the coast, which ripped open the Soviet-era ship. Russian news agencies cited the defence ministry on Thursday as admitted that the vessel sank in stormy seas after what it said was a fire and explosions involving ammunition stowed onboard. Russia had earlier tried to downplay the damage, and claimed that the Moskva was still afloat and was returning to port under its own steam. Moscow also announced that the crew had been evacuated onto other Black Sea Fleet vessels.   A senior U.S. official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the two missiles were Neptune anti-ship missiles.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is warning that Russia could use tactical nuclear weapons during its invasion of Ukraine – and cautioned that it was a matter grave concern for the entire world.  'Not only me – I think all of the world, all of the countries have to be worried because it can be not real information, but it can be truth,' Zelensky said, speaking in English. Zelensky was responding to a question by CNN's Jake Tapper about CIA Director William Burns warning that Russian President Vladimir Putin might use a tactical nuclear tactical weapon as a desperate act amid military setbacks in its invasion, which has continued for 50 days. He mentioned nuclear weapons as well as chemical weapons as a potential threat. 'Chemical weapons, they should do it, they could do it, for them the life of the people [means] nothing. That's why,' Zelensky said, speaking in sometimes imprecise English. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned Friday Russia could use tactical nuclear weapons  'We should think not be afraid, not be afraid but be ready. But that is not...

    The pride of Russia’s fearsome Black Sea fleet was taken out yesterday in one of the most cunning operations of the war. Ukrainian commanders destroyed the huge Moskva warship by using drones to distract its defence systems and allowing surface-skimming missiles to strike. The 12,500-ton cruiser’s protective sensors seemingly did not see the Neptune rockets heading its way because they were tracking Turkish TB2 drones. Providing a massive boost to morale in Kyiv, and a huge blow to Vladimir Putin’s navy, two missiles slammed into the port side of the 611ft Moskva, rocking her violently and causing a catastrophic explosion and huge fires. As flames lit up the stormy Black Sea, the ship’s 510 crewmen frantically climbed into lifeboats and fled. The surprise attack took place at 2am yesterday as the Moskva, Russia’s main ‘command and control’ warship, was 60 miles south of Odessa The surprise attack took place at 2am yesterday as the Moskva, Russia’s main ‘command and control’ warship, was 60 miles south of Odessa.

    MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian military says the damaged Moskva missile cruiser sank while being towed to a port. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    Initially christened the Slava, or “glory,” the warship now known as the Moskva in honor of the Russian capital has served in the Cold War, peacetime cooperation with the U.S. and conflicts in Syria and Georgia. Now, the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet is a focus of Russia’s war with Ukraine — where it was built — in the latest chapter for a storied vessel that has been buffeted by the winds of change from Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev to Russian President Vladimir Putin. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WARSHIP? Russia said a fire broke out aboard the Moskva, badly damaging it, and all the sailors were evacuated, with the ship being towed to its port. It denied there was an attack on the ship, which would normally have about 500 sailors aboard, and that its guided missile launchers were intact. Maksym Marchenko, the governor of the Odesa region, said Ukraine struck the ship with two Neptune missiles and caused “serious damage.” Oleksiy Arestovych, an adviser to Ukraine’s president, said the ship sank. But Yuriy Sak, an adviser to Ukraine’s...
    A Russian frigate patrols the harbor at Sevastopol after Russian invades Crimea. March 5, 2014. Despite the instant birth of 1,000 hilarious memes, it turns out that Russia’s Black Sea flagship, the Moskva (“Moscow”), isn’t currently being harvested by Ukrainian tractors scouring the seafloor. It is, however, reportedly being towed back to port after suffering serious damage and a fire as a result of a strike from two Neptune missiles launched by a shore battery. xIf you have wondered how the Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missile system that took out the Moskva looks like, wonder no more. pic.twitter.com/YGerY0wk05— Visegrád 24 (@visegrad24) April 14, 2022 Earlier this week, the site Small Wars Journal, warned that: “... Ukraine can easily achieve a resounding victory that would combine massive substantive defeats for the Russians with tremendous symbolism and loss of prestige for Russia in addition to greatly affecting the way ground combat plays out in the south and east. I am talking about the near-annihilation of the Russian Navy presence in the Black Sea, including the entirety or almost the entirety of the substantive portion of the...
