Ukraine Releases Video Showing Two Russian Ships Being Destroyed in Black Sea

Ukraine’s government has released a video showing two Russian military ships being destroyed by Ukrainian missiles in the Black Sea.

The Ukrainian military shared the video on Monday that purportedly shows the two Russian patrol boats being blown up.

The footage starts with an aerial view of one Raptor-class vessel in the water.

The ship then explodes into a fireball, sending debris and sparks flying through the air.

The second boat – which was on the move – suffers an identical fate.


“Two Russian Raptor boats were destroyed at daybreak today near Zmiyiny (Snake) Island,” Gen. Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s military, said in a Facebook post.

Russia’s military has not yet commented on the video.

The reported destruction comes a few weeks after Russia’s Moskva warship sank in the Black Sea.

In mid-April, a U.S. official had told Fox News that the U.S. believes that the flagship vessel was hit by two Ukrainian missiles before going underwater.

The Moskva was roughly 60 nautical miles south of Odesa at the time of the explosion.

Moscow claimed the ship sank after a fire onboard caused a blast.
