Ukraine War: Russia’s flagship crippled in the Black Sea

Former Chief of Defence Intelligence and a Director at Universal Defence and Security Solutions, Air Marshal Phil Osborn takes a look at the claims Ukrainian forces hit and badly damaged the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet with cruise missiles.

Russia acknowledged the crew was forced to evacuate, but said this was as a result of a fire, after onboard ammunition detonated.

Analysts say Russia continues to consolidate its forces ahead of an expected assault in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine.
