Ukraine’s army has launched a video Monday purportedly exhibiting two Russian patrol boats being blown up within the Black Sea. 

The clip begins with an aerial view of 1 Raptor-class boat within the water. The ship then bursts right into a fireball, sending particles and sparks flying by way of the air.  

The second boat – which was on the transfer – suffers an equivalent destiny.

In mid-April, a U.S. official had informed Each day Publish that the U.S. believes that the flagship vessel was hit with two Ukrainian missiles earlier than going underwater.

The Moskva was roughly 60 nautical miles south of Odesa on the time of the explosion. 

Moscow claimed the ship sank after a fireplace on board induced a blast.
