Second Russian navy ship sunk outside Ukrainian naval base
Note: ship sizes are not to scale. Originator (see Twitter exchange) indicates this is an approximate depiction of channel blockage.

[Ed. – Believe this is LU’s first Twitter offering at Around the Web.  See image appended below, and link to original Twitter thread as usual at the bottom.  The Twitter exchange refers to the sinking of a Russian “Yelva” class diving ship, VM-416, next to the cruiser sunk the night of 5-6 March.]

It is the outer vessel on the picture. It was sunk beside the #Ochakov to block the Ukrainian navy base in #Donuzlav today. #RussianCrimes

@MiddleEast_BRK what does that mean??

 

@SpaceTales It means the the #Donuzlav lake entrance to the #Black_Sea looks like that now: pic.twitter.com/dxAFuXqnlA

 

@MiddleEast_BRK They don’t want submarines sneaking in.

 

this is #the_end to all importing/exporting industry around the #Donuzlav lake, the local Ukrainian navy base and most of the fishermen.

 

 

@MiddleEast_BRK Or maybe out for that matter. Either way, they just forced this to the air for the United States.

 

@MiddleEast_BRK Where did u get that pic?

 

@potifar66 ?! 😉 … I produced it myself, based on pictures and videos of the sunk Ochakov and reports of the VM-416, sunk there today.

 

@potifar66 BUT, I have to say, it’s possible, both ships lie like 100 meters further sout west, directly in between the wave breakers.
