Russian warship got a hole trying to intercept Ukrainian armored boat

Due to the Ukrainian artillery armored boat, the Russian warship received a hole.

Representatives of the Ukrainian Navy reported that near the Kerch Strait, an armored artillery maneuver was carried out, which resulted in a ram of a Russian warship with Russian border guards and FSB representatives on board. As a result of the maneuver of the Ukrainian armored boat, the Russian warship received a hole - the severity of the damage is not given.

This is an incident that occurred off the coast of Crimea in 2018, although the Russian side did not mention the damage sustained by the Russian military ship.

“We went to the area of ​​the Kerch Strait. It so happened that the coastal service missed us and we began to move to the Kerch-Yenikalsky Canal. The Russians tried to stop. We had to maneuver. Due to our maneuvering, the Russian ship Emerald received a hole from its tugboat. "- приводит words of the commander of the artillery armored boat edition "InfoResist".

It is not known how reliable such information is, but experts are in no hurry to draw conclusions, since it can be a banal provocation, since taking into account the speed of Russian warships, a collision would very likely lead to very serious damage to the Emerald ship , and they would definitely be noticed.
