This is reported by the Russian 'We can explain' Telegram channel. 

At least four sailors were killed as a result of a Storm Shadow missile attack on the Ordzhonikidze shipyard in Sevastopol on September 13 this year. The deaths became known through social media and monitoring of military cemeteries.

The graves of two dead servicemen from the Rostov-on-Don missile submarine were discovered. These are midshipman Andrey Krasnoyarov and Nikita Sheiko - a photo of their graves near Novorossiysk was published by Krasnodar activist Vitaly Votanovsky. Both graves bear the chevrons of the Fourth Separate Submarine Brigade, which includes the damaged Rostov-on-Don, and the date of death - September 13.

Two more dead sailors served on the large landing ship Minsk, which came under fire along with the Rostov. These were first lieutenants Andrey Korshunov from Tambov and medic Artem Faizov from Kaliningrad. The Defense Ministry learned about their deaths from their obituaries on social media. Korshunov was killed on September 13, and Faizov died on September 22, but his obituary says that he died along with the entire ship's crew (meaning there may be more dead) during an attack on the ship repair docks.

Both vessels were in the docks at the final stage of repair, and the crew was preparing them for launching, so the military came under fire. The Defense Ministry did not officially report any casualties from the strike; according to the ministry's press service, 7 out of 10 Ukrainian missiles were shot down over Crimea on September 13.

However, a few days later, the researchers found a fundraiser for the sailors "injured" by the attack on the website of the St. Petersburg Submariners Club, and there was no mention of their number.

  • On the night of September 13, Russia accused Ukraine of a massive missile attack on a shipyard in Sevastopol and damage to two ships. Ukrainian intelligence confirmed that a large amphibious assault ship and a Russian submarine were hit.
