Ukrainian armed forces have reportedly obliterated Putin’s prized parade ship with a laser-guided bomb.
As Russia callously celebrated Victory Day across the nation and in occupied parts of Ukraine, Ukraine delivered a fatal blow to Putin’s parade boat.
The patrol vessel, which was commonly used by the Russian president during inspections of his naval fleet, was targeted by a bomb dropped from a Bayraktar TB2 drone.
The ship, which was stationed in the Black Sea near Snake Island, was destroyed in the process.
Sinking the iconic vessel serves as a major blow to Putin who personally used the boat to perform inspections, carry out military parades, and deliver speeches.
In a recent turn of developments, Ukraine managed to bring down two other Raptor-class vessels. They also targeted and destroyed a Russian landing craft with a surface-to-air missile system on it.
“We received information that one of the destroyed boats of the Raptor type in the Snake Island area was Putin’s parade boat,” Ukraine Now revealed on Telegram as footage of Putin’s prized ship getting destroyed was shared.
“On board, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin hosted military parades in St. Petersburg and Sevastopol several times.”
Another Ukrainian report confirmed that the “specially equipped parade boat” came with a tail number 001.
“Among its sister ships, the vessel stands out by the white color of its hull. This is a specially equipped parade boat with tail number 001,” the report read.
“The Kremlin’s dwarf conducted military parades in St Petersburg and Sevastopol several times on the boat.
“If the assumptions are correct, then the reaction of the bunker grandfather to such news can only be imagined.”
