The Ukrainians attacked their former ship, which was seized by Russia a decade ago Business

in 2024 March 26 In the morning, the spokesperson of the Ukrainian Navy, Captain Third Class Dmytro Pletenchuk, announced that the large Ukrainian amphibious assault ship “Konstantin Olshanskij” seized by the Russian occupiers during the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 was hit by a Ukrainian missile “Neptune”.

“Justice has been served,” the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine wrote on social media.

The Konstantin Olshanskij has been docked in Sevastopol Bay in southwestern Crimea for a year as Russia dismantled it for parts, Ukrainian Navy spokesman Dmytro Pletenchuk said on Tuesday. However, Moscow eventually decided to restore the ship because it ran out of amphibious ships.

Russia planned to use “Konstantin Olshanskij” against Ukraine, said D. Pletenciuk and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

“That’s why it was decided to attack this ship with Neptune,” said A. Pletenciuk, according to “Ukrainska Pravda” newspaper. “It was definitely damaged. In any case, he is not ready to fight now.”

The R-360 Neptune is a long-range missile developed by the Kyiv-based Luch Design Bureau that can attack not only ships, but also ground targets.
