Ukraine's attack on Russian Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol leaves several dead and wounded, including Russian generals
Following Ukraine's attack on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, at least 9 people were killed and 16 wounded, including Russian generals, said the head of Ukraine's Main Intelligence Directorate Kriilo Budanov. However, he did not specify whether Western-made missiles were used to attack.
"Among the wounded is the commander of the group, Colonel General Olexandr Romanciuk, in a very serious condition. The Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Oleg Tsekov, is unconscious. The number of non-headquarters casuals is still being determined. These are servicemen who are on duty, security and so on - they are not included in the list we announced to you," the official said, quoted by Ukrainskaia Pravda.
Meanwhile, Russian television stations reported on this topic only in the first hours after the attack. Later in the evening, the news was no longer publicized.
For example, on Pervîi Canal, the state propaganda television, the presenter read the following text: "The Ministry of Defense reported that the regime in Kiev tried to attack the territory of Crimea. Five missiles were shot down by air defense forces. Also, 10 Himars shells were intercepted".
This was also noted by the BBC's correspondent in Moscow, Steve Rosenberg.
"I just watched the main evening news program "Vremea" on Pervîi Canal (50-minute program). I haven't heard anything about the missile attack on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol," he wrote on a social network.
