The reported destruction comes a few weeks after Russia’s Moscow warship sank in the Black Sea.

In mid-April, a US official had told Fox News that the US believes the flagship was hit with two Ukrainian missiles before it went underwater.

The Russian missile cruiser Moscow, the flagship of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, is seen anchored in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol on 11 September 2008.
