Ukrainian navy says large Russian landing ship destroyed at occupied port

The Ukrainian Navy says a large Russian landing ship docked at the Ukrainian port of Berdyansk has been destroyed.

Making the announcement in a Facebook post, the navy does not provide any further details.

Earlier, large explosions and heavy smoke were seen in the area.

On Monday, Russia’s military said it had docked the large landing support ship, Orsk, at the dock.

The port city was occupied by Russian forces during the first days of the war last month.
