The Russian Telegram channel “Kremlin Snuffbox” writes that after a strike by sea drones on the ship, allegedly part of its crew managed to escape , while 19 sailors are considered missing. Since the attack occurred at night, it was difficult for the invaders to carry out a search operation in the dark, NBN reports.

The Russians launched the ship “Sergei Kotov” in temporarily occupied Kerch relatively recently – in January 2021. Since the “liberators” were unable to detect Ukrainian sea drones, the new vessel of the Black Sea Fleet of the aggressor country was damaged and sank under water.

As reported, Budanov was given details of the “demilitarization” of the patrol ship of the “second army of the world” near Kerch Strait by special forces of the GUR MOU.
