    you don't have to be Einstein to see that Kazakhstan is the next Ukraine

    They were likely monitoring the emergency calls from the ship regarding the fire.

    They also claimed they hit the ship with two missiles and it immediately rolled over and sunk, but we can see in the photo that it was under tow and was afloat...

    Have you guys heard about US officials admitting US intelligence involvement in sinking of Slava Class cruiser?

    Moskva sinking: US gave intelligence that helped Ukraine sink Russian cruiser

    The US said it was the Moskva and helped confirm its location. Ukraine then struck it with two missiles.

    The Pentagon has not commented. But a spokesman said the US gave intelligence to help Ukraine defend itself.

    Must have had a backlash over that because they are now saying they had nothing to do with it...

    https://www.rt.com/news/555062-moskva-us-intelligence-ukraine/

    The US didn’t provide Ukraine with intelligence that allegedly allowed it to strike Russia’s Black Sea flagship Moskva off the coast of Odessa last month, Pentagon press-secretary John Kirby has said, in a statement to media.

    He was reacting to a report by the NBC on Thursday, claiming that American officials had helped Kiev's forces to target the vessel.

    “The Ukrainians have their own intelligence capabilities to track and target Russian naval vessels, as they did in this case,” Kirby said.

    Russia insists that its missile cruiser wasn’t attacked, but sank on April 14 after a fire that had broken out on board caused the detonation of ammunition. One sailor was confirmed killed and 27 others are missing as a result of the incident, while 396 other crew members were safely evacuated.

    Oh, ho-ho-ho, no backsies you HNrrep. From now on NATO ships get to enjoy the privilege of being painted on by Russian targeting systems.

    It will be fucking hilarious if the first sinking of a carrier is by a Houthi Silkworm hahaha.

    I just want to say that the fact that the volna targeting radar was in neutral position and the osa launchers weren't extended lends credence to the leaked info that the Moskva's air defense systems(other than the search radar) were not operable, and that it was hit by ASHMs because of this.


    Or it still could've been a mine.

    Except even from the limited view available the damage is clearly fire damage only... there was no explosion obvious let alone two as the Orcs claim.

    Right now the only claims of anti ship missile hits are coming from the Orcs and their track record is very strong for being opportunist liars.

    They lost at least three Hip helicopters loaded with troops and a Hind and three landing boats of soldiers to try to take an island of little significance just to try to embarrass Putin on the May parade... if we assume 20 soldiers per Hip and three landing boats that is likely the better part of 120 marines killed for a gesture... a useless empty gesture.

    But gold for Twitter and western media of course and at the cost of their own men which are clearly worth more to Russia than to Zelensky or the UK and US puppetiers pulling his strings.
