Ukraine destroys Russian minesweeper in Black Sea, ministry rejoices

“The naval forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, together with their comrades, continue to bring us closer to victory,” the Ukrainian Navy wrote on its Telegram channel.

No information on the location of the attack or the weapons used to target the Kovrovets, but Ukraine had notable success in tormenting the Russian fleet with drone boats exploding.

THE The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine turned to X (formerly Twitter) to celebrate the latest loss of the Russian Navy.

The Kovrovets, a Project 266M Natya-class minesweeper, was used for mine clearance, reconnaissance and control operations, reports Euromaidan Press. It had also been deployed off the coast of Syria.

The Soviet-era minesweepers were built in the 1970s and 1980s and carried a crew of 68.

In March, the Ukrainian Navy told AP News that Ukraine had destroyed or disabled a third of all Russian warships stationed in the Black Sea before the war.

The latest sinking of a Russian warship follows attacks on Novorossiysk on Friday. The Russian port has become an important base for the Black Sea Fleet after repeated attacks on its traditional base in Crimea.

It appears that the Novorossiysk attack was part of the largest drone attack ever carried out in Ukraine.

Satellite images from April indicate that Russia was strengthening the defenses of its Black Sea Fleet naval base in Novorossiysk.

However, Novorossiysk was hit this weekend by Ukrainian missiles and drones.

As Ukraine maintains pressure on Russia in Crimea and the Black Sea region, its troops are struggling to repel Russian advances along the eastern front, particularly near Kharkiv.

Despite the progress made by Russian forces, President Volodymyr Zelensky said Ukraine was not experiencing a shortage of artillery shells for the first time since Russia launched its full-scale invasion.
