Currently, the vessel is allegedly heading for the city of Sevastopol in the annexed Crimea.
Earlier, on May 7, Ukraine released footage showing that it had destroyed a Russian ship near Snake Island in the Black Sea with a missile launched from a Ukrainian drone.
In April, the Ukrainian authorities said their anti-ship missiles had hit the mighty Moskva. They also added that the ship was ‘severely damaged’ due to a fire and subsequent explosion of ammunition onboard.
Since the Russian invasion, Ukrainian authorities have claimed to destroy several ships, fighter jets and war tanks of Russian forces.
