On the night of Tuesday, December 26, the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked the large landing ship of the invaders, Novocherkassk, which was based in temporarily captured Feodosia. The media reported what kind of cargo this BDK could have transported.
The head of the press center of the Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine Natalya Gumenyuk said on the national telethon that at night in Feodosia there was a loud explosion, after which a fire and long-term detonation began, which was caused “not just by the fuel or the ammunition of the BDK,” NBN reports.
According to the speaker of OK “Yug”, the Russians regularly use large landing ships for transportation of important goods. She suggested that the BDK became “a fully wrapped Christmas gift.”
The Crimean Wind Telegram channel believes that Novocherkassk could have brought Shahed kamikaze drones from Novorossiysk to temporarily captured Feodosia, or the ship had other ammunition.
Note that the Russian Ministry of Defense acknowledged the attack of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the Novocherkassk large landing ship that night. At the same time, the department traditionally announced “losses” of Ukrainian troops.
