Putin’s ‘ships are sinking’ as Ukraine obliterates ‘SIGINT intelligence’ warship in Black Sea

25th Mar 24 2:48 pm

A Russian intelligence gathering warship, the Ivan Khurs has been damaged by a Ukrainian rocket strike in the Black Sea.

Vladimir Putin has suffered devastating loses across his Black Sea Fleet as Ukrainian strikes took out the “nerve centre” of Russian intelligence operations.

The Black Sea has become another part of the frontline which has seen many warships destroyed that has left the naval fleet “functionally inactive.”

The intelligence gathering warship was used to coordinate airstrikes in Ukraine along with naval defences in the Black Sea.

A Ukrainian reporter wrote on X, “Ukrainian missiles struck the 744th Communications Center of the Black Sea Fleet in Russian-occupied Sevastopol, Crimea, which is the communication and coordination nerve center of Russian air, navy, and air defense assets in the Black Sea.”

Over the past two days Ukrainian forces have used British Storm Shadow missiles to destroy three of Putin’s Black Sea Fleet warships.

The Yamal, the Azov were destroyed and now the Ivan Khurs has been severely damaged in the missile strike.

The British Defence Secretary Grant Shapps said that due to continued missile attacks by Ukrainian forces has left Russia’s Black Sea Fleet “functionally inactive.”

Two large Russian warships were destroyed on Sunday in the Black Sea plus other naval facilities.

The Yamal and the Azov are estimated to cost around £170 million each leaving Vladimir Putin’s Black Sea Fleet virtually non-existent.

Shapps said, “Putin’s continued illegal occupation of Ukraine is exacting a massive cost on Russia’s Black Sea fleet which is now functionally inactive.

“Russia has sailed the Black Sea since 1783 but is now forced to constrain [its] fleet to port. And even there, Putin’s ships are sinking.”
