Russia says it destroyed a Ukrainian military boat with soldiers onboard near Snake Island

Russia said its air force destroyed an American-made high-speed military boat “with a landing group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” near Snake Island on Tuesday morning.

The Ukrainian military hasn’t commented on the claim.

Ukraine regained control of Snake Island last year and has stepped up its attacks in the Black Sea over the past week. The small rocky island off the southwestern Ukrainian coast first gained widespread recognition early in Russia’s invasion, when sailors defending it told the Russian navy to “go f**k yourself.”

The Russian defense ministry released video purportedly showing the military boat incident but has not provided further details.

“The high-speed surface target actively maneuvered, tried to evade fighter fire, but was successfully hit by an aircraft cannon,” the ministry said.
The video shows multiple firings at a target but without identifying details.
