Ukrainian attacks increasingly sap the power of Russia’s Black Sea fleet

By The Associated Press

Ukrainian sea drones have reportedly sunk another Russian warship in the Black Sea, the latest in a series of strikes that has crippled Moscow’s naval capability and limited its operations with the war now in its third year. Successful Ukrainian drone and missile strikes have provided a major morale boost for Kyiv at a time when its undermanned and under-gunned forces are facing Russian attacks along the front line.

In Tuesday’s reported strike, Ukraine says its naval drones sank the Russian fleet’s Sergei Kotov patrol ship.
