Fear of attacks: Russia reinforces Black Sea Fleet

The Russian Black Sea Fleet has reportedly added two more ship-based missiles to its inventory, as announced by military authorities in southern Ukraine via Telegram, according to The Kyiv Independent.

Already deployed in the Black Sea are two new frigates of the Russian Navy, as well as a submarine. These ships have the capability to launch up to 20 Kalibr cruise missiles in a salvo, as indicated in the report.

Authorities have warned of the high risk of missile attacks and have urged the population to heed warnings and seek shelter if necessary. According to the Ukrainian Navy, on October 14, a total of seven Russian warships were deployed in combat in the Black Sea. “On October 14, 2023, at 11:30 am, seven enemy warships were in combat in the Black Sea, including a carrier of Kalibr cruise missiles. Additionally, one enemy ship was in the Sea of Azov, and four more were in combat in the Mediterranean,” the report stated.

On October 14, the British Ministry of Defence reported that Russia had doubled its defense measures in the Black Sea following losses in Ukrainian attacks.
