Ukraine counter-offensive: Strike on Russia’s Black Sea HQ in Sevastopol cripples the country’s military -no fewer than 34 high-ranking officers neutralized




Ukraine’s military has scored a devastatingly crippling victory after neutralizing no fewer than 34 high-ranking officers in the pinpoint strike on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet HQ in Sevastopol.

The dead reportedly includes the now former commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Viktor Sokolov, who had been hand-picked by ailing Russian President Vladimir Putin to lead the Black Sea Fleet to victory.

Dubbed ‘Operation Crab Trap’, the massively successful strike involved the use of Storm Shadow missiles to demolish the building where a military leadership meeting was being held. Ukraine’s special services operatives reportedly coordinated with air force command to time the strike to perfection. What was left of the building had to be torn down as it could never be used again.

The destruction of the Black Sea Fleet HQ building signifies an absolutely crippling defeat for Russia, whose naval forces are being decimated by a country with no navy whatsoever.
