Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk of the Ukrainian Air Force has his pilots did “fine work” and claimed the Russian Fleet “is getting smaller and smaller”.

Armed Forces Minister James Heappey said, “The progress in Ukraine over the past few months has been slow, nobody can pretend otherwise, but anyone who thinks there was no progress at all is simply wrong… the importance of what has happened in the Black Sea over the last couple of weeks where a Russian submarine and a Russian ship have been put out of action and the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet has been put out of action too.”

“The functional defeat of the Black Sea Fleet — and I would argue that is what it is because it has been forced to disperse to ports from which it cannot have an effect on Ukraine — and every bit as important as [what was happening on land] last year.”

This incident is part of a series of successful Ukrainian attacks on Russian naval forces in the Black Sea, leading to the dispersal of the Black Sea Fleet.

The effectiveness of these strikes has been noted by UK officials, signaling a significant strategic impact.
