This was reported by the Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti.

According to Russian reports, the missile strike, allegedly launched by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, targeted the shipbuilding plant in Kerch. The Russian military claimed to have shot down 13 out of the 15 missiles, but no evidence was provided to support these claims.

Terrorists confirmed that “one of the ships at the plant was damaged by a cruise missile.”

The Planet Labs footage from November 5 shows damage to the shipyard and a warship, probably the Askold missile carrier.

Captain Andriy Ryzhenko, a reserve naval officer, said in a comment to Schemes that, according to his information, on November 4, there was only one ship capable of carrying Kalibr class missiles in Kerch at the time of the explosions, namely the Askold.

"I believe this ship, as we can observe, had already reached the dock and was in the final stages of preparation, as it was scheduled to be completed in December. You can see that it is still afloat, but the upper part of the ship is noticeably damaged," Ryzhenko analyzed the satellite images.

He added that the Askold is a 22800 Karakurt-type small missile ship that can carry up to 8 Kalibrs. According to Ryzhenko, neutralizing such a vessel is very important for Ukraine's security.

  • On the afternoon of Saturday, November 4, explosions were heard in the occupied city of Kerch, Crimea. The Department of Strategic Communications of the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed the successful strikes on the Zaliv Shipyard.
