Ukraine reports destruction of five Russian warships

According to the Ukrainian Navy’s own data, five Russian longships have been destroyed since the beginning of the long-range invasion. This reports the German news website

A spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy announced this information in a statement on Ukrainian television. According to a report by the Kyiv Independent, in March 2022, the Ukrainian attack on the occupied port of Berdyansk destroyed the Saratov landing ship and damaged the Novocherkassk and Cesar Kunikov boats. Another landing ship, the Olenegorskiy Gornyak, suffered heavy water damage from a drone strike on August 4 while docked at the Novorossiysk naval base. The Navy spokesman did not comment on the situation of the fifth landing craft.
