Putin suffered a major setback when Ukrainian intelligence helped them destroy their prized flagship, Moskva.


The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s flagship, the Moskva, sank on April 14 after being hit by Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missiles.

The cruiser, which carried 510 people, caught fire as a result of the strike, and there were believed to be significant Russian casualties.

Ukrainian forces are said to have inquired about a ship sailing in the Black Sea, which was later identified as the Moskva and its location confirmed.

The Americans claim they were unaware that Ukraine was planning an attack on the Moskva and shared the information to assist Ukraine in defending itself.

According to NBC, intelligence shared with Ukrainian President Zelensky’s forces allowed them to target and kill Russian generals while also avoiding Russian attacks.

However, the United States is concerned about offending Putin and escalating the conflict into a full-fledged global conflict.

“We do not provide intelligence on the location of senior military leaders on the battlefield,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby told reporters on Thursday.

Shаring of lethаl tаrget informаtion аbout Russiаn civil аnd militаry leаders is currently prohibited under US policy.

The sinking of the Moskvа, аllegedly Russiа’s most deаdly wаrship, wаs widely regаrded аs а “deep humiliаtion” for the Kremlin.
