Ukraine rained 15 cruise missiles on Russia’s shipyard in the Crimean port city of Kerch on Saturday, damaging one ship, Russian defence ministry said, in an attack that could further undermine Moscow’s striking capabilities.
Thirteen of the missiles were destroyed in the air, while one hit a ship, the Russian defence ministry said in a typically laconic statement when reporting on Ukraine’s strikes on Russian territory or infrastructure. It did not give the ship’s name.
Ukraine’s top Air Force commander said the Russian Navy stationed there one of its most modern ships, a carrier of the Kalibr cruise missile. Moscow has often attacked Ukraine in the course of the 20-month-long war with Kalibr missiles.
