Ukrainians blew up Russian landing ship “ORSK” and damaged two more

In an unbelievable development that largely shows the disorganized deployment of Russian forces in Ukraine, a Russian landing ship was blown up by the Ukrainians.

The Ukrainian army announced the strike against the Russian ship and presented evidence that no one has so far disputed. In particular, a Russian Navy vessel located in a Russian-occupied port in southern Ukraine was most likely hit by a Ukrainian Tochka-U ballistic missile.

This particular ship is the landing ship “Orsk” that had docked in the Russian-occupied port of Berdyansk.

In photos taken immediately after the attack, two more Ropucha-class landing ships with minor damage, one and the other with onboard fire that was later extinguished, were seen leaving the port.

The NEMESIS HD also confirmed by open-access satellite the hit in Berdyansk as seen in the image above.
