Ukraine: Russian Naval Ship Catches Fire In The Black Sea

The “Vsevolod Bobrov,” a Russian naval support ship, has been hauled from the Snake Island area after catching fire, according to a representative for the Odessa regional military administration.

“As a result of the actions of our military sailors, the logistics ship Vsevolod Bobrov, one of the newest in the Russian fleet, [caught fire]. They say that it is [being towed] to Sevastopol,” the Ukrinform news agency quoted spokesperson Serhii Bratchuk as saying.

The declaration comes nearly a month after the Russian battleship Moskva was hit by two Ukrainian missiles before sinking in the Black Sea.

When Moscow confirmed the Ukrainian account that the Moskva was hit by two Neptune missiles, causing the ship to catch fire and sink, it was a huge victory for Kyiv.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, the sinking of the Russian warship in mid-April signified a turning point in the Ukrainian resistance.
