The claim early yesterday morning that Ukraine’s military attacked a Russian landing ship off the coast of Crimea turned out to be true. The Russian troop landing ship, Novocherkassk, near the port city of Feodosia in the eastern coastline area of Crimea was damaged by cruise missiles. Russian officials claim the ship was merely damaged with light casualties, while an Ukrainian Air Force official said the ship was destroyed.
