Russian Defence Ministry claims that its Black Sea flagship Moskva sunk due to the explosion of ammunition on the ship. On the other hand, the country attacked the Luch factory that manufactures Neptune anti-ship missiles.
Russia, which retreated from the Kyiv surroundings as it could not bear the consequences of urban warfare in the city, started to strike with long-range missiles. It later intensified its strikes following the sinking of the flagship Moskva in the Black Sea.
The next target of the Putin administration was the military factories around Kyiv. Heavy explosions were seen on Friday night in Kyiv, while Russia’s Ministry of Defence said early Friday that it had destroyed the ‘Vizar plant, which manufactures anti-ship missiles and other Ukrainian rockets.
Russia said it had used sea-based long-range Kalibr missiles to hit the plant.
