As NBN reports, the Russian publication Astra hastened to report that there were almost 80 sailors on board the ship at the time of the Ukrainian Armed Forces missile strike .
The publication's sources clarify that during an attack by the Ukrainian Defense Forces on the ship, ammunition hit its bow. As a result of the hit, a strong explosion occurred, after which a large-scale fire broke out.
It is noted in the material that at the time of the attack on the ship “Novocherkassk” there were seventy-seven sailors among the crew members.
Verbatim from the published message:
According to primary data, at least three of them were injured. The exact number of those injured as a result of the strike is unknown.
However, the Russian publication soon updated the information on the dead and injured crew members as a result of the APU strike.
In particular, it notes:
33 sailors are listed as missing. 23 people were injured. One died as a result of the attack. At the site of the attack on the Novocherkassk ship in the port of Feodosia (Crimea), fragments of a Storm Shadow missile were found. The ship itself completely burned out and sank.
