“Ukrainians claim to have destroyed large Russian warship in Berdyansk” –CNN

A screen grab of a video shared on social media of the Berdyansk port fire. via CNN

CNN reports Ukrainian claims to have destroyed the Russian Alligator class LST Orsk.  Two other Russian landing ships were damaged. My contact in Ukraine tells me the hit was by a Soviet era Tochka U missile, NATO reporting name SS-21 Scarab (no confirmation of course).

  1. Their own fleet can’t provide basic defense for a landing is how I see this. SHould the ship be more defended or nearby combatants have more to offer? Why isn’t there force protection keeping civilians and local webcams such they can’t get a good view of their landing activity? All things we should consider with LAW and EPFs.
