The missile cruiser had previously been deployed by Moscow. To the Syrian port where it provided Russian troops in the country with ship protection.


What defenses did Moskva have?


The Slava-class ship was the third largest naval ship in Russia and one of its most secure cargo ships, maritime expert Jonathan Bentham of the International Institute for Strategic Studies told the BBC. If operating properly, would have given him three chances to defend himself against Neptune’s arrows.

In addition to medium and short-range protections, they can include six short-range projections for weapons (CIWS) as a last resort.

Mr Bentham said Moskva should have 360-degree anti-air defense coverage.

“The CIWS system can shoot 5,000 rounds per minute. Creating a wall around the cruiser, the last line of defense,” he said.

When the strike proves to be from a missile “it raises questions about the power of modern Russian ships: whether it has enough ammunition. Or whether it has engineering problems”.

“In fact, you would think that with this three-tiered air defense system. It would be very difficult to beat it,” added a military expert.


Neptune arrows


Kyiv military officials say they hit Moskva with a Neptune arrow made in Ukraine.

The cruise missile system was designed by Ukrainian military engineers in response to a growing military threat posed by Russia in the Black Sea. Following the 2014 Crimean invasion.

According to the Kyiv Post, the Ukrainian navy first discovered Neptune’s 300km (186 miles) missiles in March last year.

Since the start of the attack Ukraine has received an influx of military aid from Western allies. Including the £ 100m of anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank missiles the UK announced it would send last week.


Dominion of the Black Sea


The warship “was a symbol of Russia’s military prowess in the Black Sea,” Michael Petersen of the Russia Maritime Studies Institute told the BBC.

“Moskva has been a thorn in the side of the Ukrainian people since the beginning of this conflict,”. He said, adding that seeing it destroyed “could really inspire the people of Ukraine.”
Russian troops have ruled the Black Sea since the Crimean occupation in 2014. And have used their presence there to launch and provide attacks.

Its Black Sea ships have strongly supported the war effort to launch cruise missiles anywhere in Ukraine. And have been instrumental in supporting Russia’s efforts to capture Mariupol.

Snake Island


In the early days of the Russian invasion Moskva made headlines around the world after ordering a group of Ukrainian soldiers at a Black Sea patrol station to surrender.

When the soldiers politely refused to listen to the radio. It was initially believed that the border guards had been killed but had actually been kidnapped.

The troops were later released as part of a Russian-led military coup in late March and their commander was honored with a medal by Ukrainian troops.

The story of their courage was so powerful in the morals of the Ukrainian people. That the national transport commemorated their meeting on Snake Island with a special photographic seal.
