On April 18, the first short video of a good quality showing the damaged Russian Moskva cruiser in the Black Sea was shared online.
- Clouds of smoke rise above the warship. More Russian warships are seen nearby.
Photos allegedly showing the Moskva cruiser have been previously shared online as well.
The newly published video still does not clarify what was the exact reason of the sinking. This leaves two main versions, either the damage was the result of a submarine attack, or a Neptune anti-ship missiles miraculously and precisely hit the cruiser’s waterline area in the vicinity of the main missile ammunition depot without causing its detonation.
