The Russian Black Sea Fleet Rescue Tug "Vasily Bekh" has been hit by Ukrainian-launched missiles and SUNK.
The ministry added that Kalibr missiles were also used to destroy 10 M777 howitzers and up to 20 armored vehicles that were recently delivered from the West, and had been stored inside a factory building in the southern city of Nikolayev.
A rescue ship is a civil not a military ship. Why would you celebrate sinking, destroying and killing civilians and civil infrastructure.
Usually unarmed tugboats are not considered fair game. How many rules of engagement did this break?
Better for you to identify as a Christian !
So those harpoon missiles were about a million a piece, so there was 2 million up in smoke. That tugboat probably cost the Russians about a million dollars. (Neglecting the value of lives) If the Ukrainians fight a war like this, it will bleed the Opposition faster than it will Russia. I wonder what that Tug Boat was going to Rescue? A military ship out of commission due to bad logistics?
What kind of camera are they using? I've seen better Bigfoot and flying saucer videos. I'm not saying it's fake, but what kind of definitive image is that? I guess we'll know if was real by response it generates.
Obviously thermal imaging and taken from a great distance.
wow! Ukraine [NATO] targets a HUGH threat - a rescue tugboat. The war...and world is going to hell in a hand basket. Start the nuke war any way you can.. God save us from ourselves.
Why would you use a small tug that can only carry 36 men besides it crew for transporting troops and munitions. Try again msm.
Stories are circulating this morning about a strike overnight that took out ~50 of Ukraine's General Staff. If true, you can bet that there were more nationalities in the meeting besides Ukrainian. Is this Russia's answer to have one of its ship sunk by American weapons?https://ria-ru.translate.goog/20220619/kalibr-1796549325.html?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-US&_x_tr_pto=wapp

Sir, it takes one full Colonel to Command 5,000 men, One general in charge of a division (15,000 men). If they killed 3 Generals, four colonels and some staff officers the loss is devastating. Command experience is impossible to replace in a combat situation.
Very low indeed. Disgusting. The Ukies had to have been instructed where to target the impact points. I suspect either fore and aft, but it could have been the bridge and bow. Believe it or not, it is not so easy to sonk a hardened vessel of this size,
That is pretty damned fast. You say not hardened but tugs are tough boats. Harpoons are radar homing but I suspect the targeting can be offset prior to launch.
Isn't BOA owned by Chinese firm? China intentionally trying to weaken American finance even more?
