The incident occurred as a result of a warship ammunition explosion that caused the ship to sink.
On the other hand, the Ukrainian military admitted that it was they who destroyed the ship with a Neptune missile attack.
The Russian newspaper, Novaya Gazeta Europe, reported that at least 40 soldiers were killed, some missing, and injured, but the Russian government made another confession.
Russia says the explosion of the ship Moskva killed only one crew member and 27 others are missing.
The sinking of the Moskva was a blow to the Russian military. Moreover, rumors circulated that the ship was carrying nuclear weapons in the P-1000 Vulkan anti-ship missile.
The Moskva was a Soviet Slava-class cruiser built during the Cold War.
The ship, which was designed since the 1960s, was first launched in 1979 and carried out its maiden service on January 30, 1983.
The presence of this ship was inseparable from the Soviet Union’s mission to destroy the United States aircraft carrier.
