Commanding Admiral Presumed Dead After Russia’s Black Sea Fleet Headquarters Gets Demolished

Published on

The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s Sevastopol headquarters was destroyed by a volley of Ukrainian missiles in occupied Crimea. Social media was used by the strategic communications department of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to announce the attack, which took place at noon Sevastopol Time.

The Black Sea Fleet Headquarters controls Russian naval activities in the Black Sea. It was once a sleepy backwater, but with Putin’s War in Ukraine, it has become the center of attention. The Black Sea Fleet and its main base at Sevastopol are involved in the attempt to enforce Russia’s porous blockade on Ukrainian grain shipments, as well as firing cruise missiles against targets in Ukraine.

Fleet Headquarters was hit by either British Storm Shadow missiles or French SCALP EG cruise missiles. This video shows one of them in a short final.

Several high-ranking officers were reported to have been killed or injured. Unofficially it is believed that Admiral Viktor Sokolov was killed. He was the commander of the Black Sea Fleet.

You need to examine the Ukrainian military operations of the past two or three weeks in order to understand where we are today. In a little more than a week, Ukrainian cruise missiles destroyed two Russian warships as well as a sub and landing ship. An antiaircraft patrol boat was also damaged. This attack was set up by an antiaircraft and radar site raid in Crimea, which punched a large hole in the air defense belt around Sevastopol. In the past two weeks, other antiaircraft sites were also targeted. Last week, an S-400 antiaircraft weapon battery that covered downtown Sevastopol – the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet – was destroyed.

These attacks created a corridor that allowed Ukrainian strike aircraft to fly very close to Crimea and then launch their missiles.

Some claim that the strike on the Navy command post in Verkhnosadove aimed to increase the density of the main headquarters.

After the attack on the Black Sea Fleet ships, and then this attack on their headquarters, the Russian Fleet will be looking over its shoulders for some time.
