Background:

  • Explosions were heard and an air-raid warning was issued in Russian-occupied Crimea on 4 November.

  • Later, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk, Commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, said Ukrainian pilots had carried out airstrikes on the infrastructure of the Zalyv shipyard in the city of Kerch. At the time, there was no certainty whether a warship had been destroyed.

  • After the explosions, the Russians claimed for half a day that "some of the wreckage of the downed missiles crashed into the territory of one of the dry docks".

  • Only late on the evening of 4 November, the Russian Defence Ministry reported that a warship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, which had been docked at a shipyard in Kerch, had been "damaged".

  • On the morning of 5 November, Oleshchuk confirmed that the Ukrainian forces had sunk one of the most advanced ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, a Kalibr cruise missile carrier.
