Footage has started circulating on various social media platforms depicting numerous explosions occurring around a harbor in Berdyansk, a city in Ukraine currently under Russian occupation. Among these videos was one showing a significant Russian transport vessel, previously moored at the harbor, consumed by intense explosions.

The vessel in question has been identified as the Russian battleship Orsk, which had been unloading military-grade supplies along with several other ships in recent days. The Ukrainian military has claimed responsibility for the destruction of the Orsk, as well as inflicting significant damage upon the other vessels.

“A 3,000-ton fuel reservoir was also obliterated. The blaze extended to the enemy’s armory. Specifics regarding the harm caused to the occupying force are being ascertained,” they stated in a Facebook update.

The specific weapon utilized by the Ukrainian armed forces to eliminate the Orsk has not been disclosed, nor has the manner in which it was deployed. Nevertheless, the devastation of the Orsk and the severe impairment of the other ships and storage facilities constitute a significant setback to the Russian presence in Berdyansk, which has maintained control over the city since February 27.
