After the death of the cruiser Moskva in mid-April, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the crew had been completely evacuated.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation claimed that the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, the cruiser Moskva, sank after ammunition allegedly detonated due to a fire. Ukrainian sources said that the ship was sunk by the Ukrainian military.
