Ukraine destroys Russia's warship. Defense Express suggests what cargo was on board
Defence Express military expert Ivan Kyrychevskyi believes that the destroyed Novocherkassk landing ship was carrying very valuable cargo
He said this on Espreso TV.
"Various sources of official military communication have a version of the Shaheds story. No one would waste Storm Shadow cruise missiles on such an old tin can. The destroyed Novocherkassk must have had a very valuable cargo. And the unloading factor had to be confirmed. Especially since several resources immediately posted satellite photos of this landing ship on December 24, when it was being unloaded at the berths with cranes," Kyrychevskyi said.
According to a military expert, the possibility that there could have been kamikaze drones on board the downed Novocherkassk is quite likely.
"There was cargo that had to be unloaded carefully. That is, you can't immediately take out boxes of shells, for example, by truck. It had to be taken out very carefully. "The Shahed also had to be unloaded carefully. Therefore, the version that the destroyed Novocherkassk could have had kamikaze drones is quite workable," Kyrychevskyi said.
What is known about the destruction of the Novocherkassk
At night, on December 26, residents of Feodosia in Russian-occupied Crimea reported loud explosions over the city. Later, the head of the Ukrainian Air Force, Mykola Oleshchuk, confirmed the information about the destruction of the large landing ship Novocherkassk.
The Air Force also reported that the large landing ship Novocherkassk was attacked by cruise missiles from tactical aircraft around 02:30 a.m. The Air Force reported it as destroyed.
Operational Command South’s press center head Natalia Humeniuk said during the telethon that the large detonation was caused not just by fuel or ammunition from the ship itself, but probably by the cargo on board.
