A Russian warship that attacked Snake Island where Ukrainian soldiers cursed out invaders has reportedly been destroyed
Military sources told The Times UK that Vasily Bykov was one of one of two ships that attacked Ukraine's Snake Island last month.
A Russian warship that attacked Ukraine's Snake Island last month has reportedly been destroyed. Ukrainian military sources told the Times UK that the large patrol corvette — named Vasily Bykov — was hit by Ukrainian rockets early Monday morning local time. "Ship was destroyed, it is confirmed," one Ukrainian military source told The Times. Military sources told The Times that Vasily Bykov was one of one of two ships that attacked Snake Island last month, in an incident in which Ukrainian soldiers told the Russian ships to "go **** yourself."
This has not been independently confirmed. It seems Ukrainian Marines in Odesa fired missiles at two Russian ships approaching the city, striking one of the ships. This supposedly happened before daybreak.
Ukraine has an excellent mobile anti-ship cruise missle called Neptun (Neptune) with a range of 280km.
