Russian troops transfer some ships with missiles to Feodosia
Invading Russian troops have begun to scatter their missile ships, most likely in preparation for the Ukrainian Armed Forces' attacks and new missile strikes against Ukraine
This is reported by Defense Express.
On September 25, 2023, there were two Kalibr cruise missile carriers, one Buyan-M corvette and one Karakurt corvette of Project 21631, and one 22800 corvette in the harbor of temporarily seized Feodosia, according to OSINT analyst MT_Anderson's Twitter profile. There were also at least two minesweepers from Project Aleksandrit and one huge amphibious assault ship from Project 775.
"This number of Russian Black Sea Fleet ships in the waters of the port of temporarily occupied Feodosia is a record, and until the summer of 2023, this harbor was not used to deploy Russian warships at all," the company writes.
The latest on the Ukrainian Armed Forces' strikes on the Russian Black Sea Fleet
In September, attempts to destroy the Russian Black Sea Fleet gained momentum. On September 3, the Ukrainian military eliminated the Russian invaders' boat Tuna in the Black Sea during an attempt to land an enemy landing party, killing six Russian occupiers.
Another successful hunt by Ukrainian soldiers for Russians at sea was a strike on the Sevastopol shipyard in the temporarily occupied Crimea on September 13. Satellite imagery showed that cruise missiles, presumably Storm Shadow, hit the large landing ship Minsk and, more importantly, hit the Varshavianka project diesel submarine Rostov-on-Don. It should be noted that an air attack on an enemy submarine is a rare operation in the history of warfare. The SBU Special Forces shared the details of the operation and the destruction of two Russian vessels.
On September 14, in Yevpatoria, the SBU, together with the Navy, conducted a special operation and attacked the Russian air defense system Triumph.
On the evening of Sunday, September 17, explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol and on Cape Fiolent. The occupying authorities reported the operation of Russian air defense.
On September 20, the Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully attacked the command post of the Russian Black Sea Fleet near the temporarily occupied Sevastopol.
On Friday, September 22, powerful explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Crimea: the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed the defeat of the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol.
Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, suggested two options for the future of the Russian Black Sea Fleet: liquidation will be either voluntary or forced.
