Moskva Warship Sinks During Salvage Tow in Bad Weather


On April 14th, a lead Russian warship called Moskva sank in the Black Sea.

The vessel was being towed due to damage inflicted by what Russia claims was an ammunition explosion, and Ukraine has claimed as a missile strike, when it encountered bad weather, causing it to sink.

The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the crew had already been evacuated safely following the explosion.
