Ukraine claimed on Monday that it had killed the commander of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet last week in an unprecedented missile attack on the naval headquarters on the annexed Crimean peninsula.
“Thirty-four officers were killed, including the commander of the Black Sea Fleet. Another 105 passengers were injured. The headquarters is beyond repair,” Ukrainian special forces said in a statement on social media.
