Missiles on the Russian shipyard in Zaliv. Moscow successfully tests intercontinental ballistic missile

Ukraine has confirmed that it hit and damaged a Russian ship in Crimea. According to the latest news today, November 5, 2023, Kiev launched 15 cruise missiles at the Russian Zaliv shipyard yesterday, in an attack that could further weaken Moscow’s attack capabilities. Thirteen missiles were destroyed in the air, while one hit a ship, said the Russian Defense Ministry, which did not reveal the name of the vessel.

On Telegram, the commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, Mykola Oleshchuk, limited himself to writing an “I confirm” accompanied by emojis of missiles, ships and fire. “I hope another ship followed the Moskva!”, Mykola Oleshchuk wrote yesterday, referring to the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet sunk by Ukrainian missiles on April 14, 2022.

Sergei Aksyonov, the Russian-installed head of Crimea, said there were no casualties in Saturday’s attack on the Kerch shipyard in Crimea.
