Following Yevgeny Prigozhin’s death, Wagner Group alleged that Ukraine had killed the Russian Black Sea Fleet commander in a separate missile attack.
CNN reported on Tuesday that Ukraine has alleged that they killed the Russian Black Sea Fleet commander in one of the boldest attacks in Crimea.
According to the report, Ukrainian Special Forces claimed this attack occurred on Friday at the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters, resulting in the death of Viktor Sokolov, along with 33 officers of this country.
Moscow has not yet reacted to the killing of the senior commander of the Black Sea Fleet and the deaths of 33 military officers of this country.
Meanwhile, Viktor Sokolov was appointed as the commander of the Black Sea Fleet in Russia in September of last year.
Tensions have been on the rise between Ukraine and Russia in recent times. The most recent incident occurred when Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner Group, who had overseen Russia’s most significant military operation in Ukraine, was killed in Russia.
This mysterious event occurred just one day before Ukraine’s 32nd independence anniversary.
