Russia keeps 6 warships at sea, including a missile carrier – Ukrainian Navy
Dmytro Pletenchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, says that as of 5 p.m. on September 20, the Russian forces had 6 warships at sea, including one missile carrier
He said this on Espreso TV.
"There are no dramatic changes in the sea. As of 5 p.m., there are 6 enemy ships at sea, including one missile carrier. By the way, it has been a long time since the Russian forces put carriers to sea and equipped them with missiles. Today, the occupying troops have deployed such ships, which can carry up to 8 missiles. There is now one ship in the Sea of Azov again. In the Mediterranean, the Russian forces have an interesting situation. They have two ships there that cannot return home because the passage through the Bosphorus is closed," Pletenchuk said.
The Ukrainian Navy spokesperson also emphasized that the work of the Defense Forces continues as usual.
"The so-called 'Syrian Express' is not working at the moment. However, this does not mean that one day they will not send a ship to transport personnel and ammunition. This is not happening now, but the situation can change at any time. Therefore, nothing fundamentally new is happening at sea right now. All work continues as usual," he added.
Earlier, military expert Denys Popovych said that the role of Russian Black Sea Fleet has been limited to attacking Ukrainian territory with missiles and obstructing civilian vessels. This reduced role is a result of the fleet's losses.
