This is a unique sight: the Russian naval fleet is lying in a port left without a fight by Ukrainian troops, and the facilities are completely intact.

According to RT, the ship was supposed to transport troops and heavy equipment, and reportedly had room for 20 tanks and 40 armored transport vehicles, along with hundreds of soldiers.
The British Ministry of Defense wrote in its intelligence report Thursday evening, that it is likely that Ukrainian forces will continue to attack logistical targets in the Russian-occupied areas of the country – as they did Thursday in Berdyansk.
“This will force the Russian military to prioritize the defense of supply lines, depriving them of much-needed new supplies for their forces,” the ministry wrote.
This will weaken Russia’s ability to carry out offensive operations, and further damage the already weak morale, they continue.
