Pride of the fleet was sunk last year, and the fleet has primarily stayed in port since, sending only the smaller desoyers and light cruisers on patrol.

The timing on something like that is not easy. I wonder how much of it is their internal spooks, help from their friends, namely us and the Brits, or both?

UPDATE: 9 people killed, 16 injured in Ukrainian attack against Russia's Black Sea Fleet headquarters
Share

At least 9 people were killed and 16 were injured as a result of Ukraine's attack against the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol on Sept. 22, Ukrainian military intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov told news outlet Voice of America. Russian generals are among the casualties.

"Among the wounded is the commander of the group, Colonel-General (Olexandr) Romanchuk, in a very serious condition," Budanov stated. "The Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General (Oleg) Tsekov, is unconscious. The number of injured regular servicemen who are not employees of the headquarters is still being determined. These are military personnel who are on duty, security, and so on — they are not included in the list that I announced."

Oleksandr Romanchuk is the commander of a group of Russian forces in the Zaporizhzhia region, and was promoted to the rank of colonel-general in 2023. Lieutenant-General Oleg Tsekov is the commander of the 200th Separate Guards Motor Rifle Brigade, part of the Coastal Forces of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy.

Budanov did not confirm the alleged death of the commander of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, Admiral Viktor Sokolov. Updated information about his condition is not yet known.
