The demise of the Moskva will be seen as poetic justice in Ukraine

Russia-Ukraine War War World

This is a significant setback for Russia’s war effort, for both military and morale reasons. The Moskva is an old, Soviet-era missile cruiser but it has been the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea fleet since 2000.

The 12,500-tonne warship has been part of a Russian fleet loitering offshore and menacing the Ukrainian port of Odesa.

Ukrainians know it as the ship that ordered their defenders of Snake Island to surrender and were told by them to “go to hell”.

So whatever caused the major fire onboard – and Ukraine says it was two missiles fired by its forces – the demise of the once mighty Moskva will be seen as poetic justice in Ukraine.

In more practical terms, this incident is likely to result in Russian warships having to move further offshore for their own safety.

It follows an earlier explosion onboard a Russian amphibious landing ship, believed to be the result of a covert Ukrainian attack.
