Sinking in the Black Sea: Russia Destroys Ukrainian Warship

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the navy has destroyed an unmanned Ukrainian naval ship en route to Crimea, as reported by the German news website

According to the ministry, at around 08:00 Moscow time, an unmanned Ukrainian naval ship was detected in the western Black Sea, heading towards the Crimean Peninsula. The identified target was then eliminated.

These claims have not yet been independently verified and/or confirmed. Therefore, they should be considered with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflicting parties to deliberately spread misinformation to strengthen their own position or weaken the opponent’s.
