Ukrainian Navy spokesman Dmytro Pletenchuk says the Ukrainian military has managed to disable a third of the Russian Black Sea Fleet's ships

He said this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.

According to the Navy spokesperson, Ukraine has officially destroyed and damaged 28 Russian ships and missile launchers. In total, a third of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is out of commission.

"Over 10 units were under repair. But many of the ships that are now in service were also damaged. For example, both frigates Admiral Essen and Admiral Makarov. Many of the Russian ships have already become familiar with drones and missiles. And some of them have already been restored," Pletenchuk said.

He added that some of the Russian ships are still undergoing repairs, and some will be there for a long time due to serious damage.

"Do you know what happened with the big landing ships? We waited for them to fix them up, and then we attacked. And it was extremely difficult to repair them because they are Project 775, they are Polish-made. And the Poles, of course, refuse to service them. And they tried to buy some parts, substitutes, to circumvent the sanctions. That's why I don't think they will rush to repair these large landing ships now," the Navy spokesman suggests.

According to him, at one point, the 28 destroyed Russian ships included various types of vessels, such as boats. Russia has around 15 such boats.

"Starting with the flagship and ending with four large amphibious assault ships of the second rank. Only the cruiser Moskva was of the first rank. This also includes the Rostov-on-Don submarine, Kotov, Ivanovets, Vasyl Bekh and others," Pletenchuk said.

  • Recently, Ukraine's Navy reported that Russia, after the damage to its ships, began using submarines to patrol the Black Sea.
