Russian Ship Destroyed by Ukraine in Berdyansk, Videos Appear To Show


Ukraine claims to have blown up a Russian ship near the port city of Berdyansk in southeast Ukraine. "The Orsk large landing ship of the Black Sea Fleet of the occupiers has been destroyed in the port of Berdyansk captured by Russia," the Ukrainian navy said in a post on Facebook. The Orsk, a large landing support ship, was docked in the Azov Sea near the occupied port of Berdyansk, 45 miles southwest of the strategic besieged city of Mariupol. The report has not yet been independently confirmed and Russia's Defense Ministry has not immediately responded to the claim the Orsk had been destroyed.

On Monday, Russia's armed forces confirmed they had docked the Orsk in Berdyansk to deliver military equipment, as reported by Russia's state-run news agency TASS. TASS reports that Zvezda, Russia's Defense Ministry-linked television channel, described the arrival of the Orsk in Ukraine as "an epic event that opens up opportunities for the Black Sea in terms of logistics by using the port of Berdyansk infrastructure to the full extent." According to the report shared by Zvezda, the Orsk can carry up to 1,500 tons of equipment and cargo and transport up to 20 tanks or 40 armored personnel carriers (APCs).


Berdyansk!!! The occupiers are burning well! — 🇺🇦Armed Forces
Did anyone see a ship in that video?
Russia has alway been looking for a “warm water” port.
