A Russian amphibious boat that hit a mine off Mariupol was sunk

A Russian landing craft reportedly sank off Mariupol when it struck a mine, Ukrainian lawmaker Oleksiy Gotsarenko and a Ukrainian official said. The incident took place on June 30, the day the Russian army withdrew its forces from Fidonisi.

“It is reported that a Russian landing craft of the 1176 “Akula” D-106 design of the Black Sea Fleet exploded near Mariupol. We are waiting for confirmation of the ‘goodwill gesture,'” said Serhiy Bratchuk, a spokesman for the Odesa regional military command.

The information about the incident is confused as the Daily Mail emphasizes that the ship fell into a Russian mine, speaking of a “blunder” by the Russian navy. As reported by the British newspaper, the crew is said to have survived the incident.

“Near Mariupol, a landing craft of the Black Sea Fleet D-106 blew up on a mine,” said a Telegram channel associated with the Russian navy.
