Russian warship destroyed in occupied port of Berdyansk, says Ukraine – BBC News – Latest News Today
A Russian landing ship has been destroyed and two other boats have been damaged in the occupied Ukrainian port city of Berdyansk, say Ukrainian officials.
The Ukrainian military posted footage early on Thursday and said the Orsk had been hit by its forces.
Details of what caused the explosion and fire on board the ship are unclear.
Berdyansk, which is west of the besieged port of Mariupol, was seized four days after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Russia says it has used the port as a base to ferry in equipment for its troops.
Russian army TV hailed the arrival of the Orsk in Berdyansk last week as an “epic event” as it was the first Russian warship to dock there.
