排他的な勇敢な英国の女性が母親を救うためにウクライナに戻る: First pictures show Russian warship Moskva sinking

First images ‘show Putin’s doomed flagship Moskva on fire and sinking into the Black Sea after being shot by Ukraineas conscripts tell of horrors on board with hundreds thought to have died

  • First images have emerged appearing to show Russian Black Sea flagship Moskva on fire shortly before it sank
  • Pictures show the ship billowing smoke, sitting low in the water, listing to port with damage on its left side
  • Images are consistent with Ukrainian claims that they shot it with two missiles before it rolled and sank, and seem to contradict Russian accounts that the vessel went down in rough seas
  • Came as conscripts who survived the sinking gave first accounts to their families of horrors suffered on board
  • Images have emerged which appear to give a first glimpse at Russia flagship Moskva after it was blown up by Ukrainian missiles last week and before it sunk to the bottom of the Black Sea.

    写真(複数, which seem to have been taken from a rescue vessel alongside the stricken Russian warship, show damage its left side along with flames burning below deck and a thick pall of black smoke rising into the sky.

    Moskva is sitting low in the water, leaning to the port side, and appears to have deployed its lifeboats with no crew visible on board. There also seems to be a firefighting ship behind the vessel, on the opposite side to the camera, which is spraying jets of water into the air.

    Multiple black marks scar the port-side of the ship, including several near deck level where smoke appears to have streamed out of portholes and left black marks on the paint. But there are also dark marks close to the waterline that don’t match the position of portholes and suggest the ship has sustained external damage.

    That means the images are largely consistent with Ukrainian descriptions of the sinkingthat the Moskva was hit by two missiles on its port side which sparked a fire and caused it to rolland contradict Russia’s account which was that the ship suffered a fire and internal explosion in rough seas.

    Analysts and experts who reviewed the images say they do appear genuine. It is unlikely that Russia will confirm the authenticity of the pictures, amid a near-total information blackout around the sinking which is a huge embarrassment to Vladimir Putin’s beleaguered armed forces.

    Moscow did stage what appeared to be a parade of crew members in the port of Sevastopolin occupied Crimea – 土曜日, during which the captain of the warship and between 150 そして 250 members of its crew were shown on camera alongside Black Sea Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov. The Moskva typically carries up to 510 sailors, and there was no word on the whereabouts of the remaining crew or their condition.

    But horror accounts of the sinking have started to emerge from conscripts serving on board the ship, with one telling his parents that at least 40 members of the crew were killed with ‘manyleft missing or maimed with lost limbs after the strike.

    Images have emerged which appear to show the Russian warship Moskva heavily damaged and on fire in the Black Sea shortly before it sank. The picture shows heavy damage to the left side of the vessel, which is largely consistent with Ukrainian accounts that they shot it with two missiles before it rolled and went under

    The pictures seem to contradict Russian accounts of the sinking, after Moscow claimed the warship sank in choppy seas while being towed to the port of Sevastopol following an explosion on board

    Parents of another conscript say they have found out some 200 死んで別の – many with horrific burns and other major injuries.

    The young sailor who witnessed the carnage on the Moskva was revealed by Novaya Gazeta, Russia’s leading investigative media outlet, now operating from outside the country after being gagged by Putin.

    ‘I first heard from him only on 15 4月, two days after the incident,’ said the distraught mother.

    ‘My son said the cruiser was hit from the land, from the Ukrainian side, because the fire on board would not have started without a reason.

    ‘There are people who were killed, wounded and missing.

    ‘My son called me as soon as they all were given phones [after being rescued].

    ‘Their own documents and phones were on the [sunken} cruiser.

    ‘He called me, and he cried over what he had seen.

    「それは恐ろしいことでした. Clearly not everyone survived.

    彼女は言いました: ‘Most of the wounded have limbs torn off, because of the explosions from both the missiles and the detonated ammunition.

    ‘My son was crying when he called me on 15 4月.

    '彼は言った: ‘Mamochka (tender for mum), I never thought I’d get into such a mess during supposedly peaceful times. I won’t even tell you the details of what I’ve seen, it was so horrendous’.

    The mother said: ‘I don’t want to share his name because I am scared to damage my son.

    ‘They signed non-disclosure agreements before boarding the cruiser.

    ‘Please understand me, I am terrified. I am petrified, and I don’t know how I will wait for my son to return.

    She indicated that the Defence Ministry is stopping the survivors from going home, perhaps to prevent accounts of the calamity for Putin reaching the outside world.

    ‘I’ve no idea how I’ll live through this while waiting for my son to return, waiting for him to finish his service. そこに立っている男の子.

    ‘And the [状態] メディア, もちろん, doesn’t give any details.

    'なぜ? Because the Ministry of Defence doesn’t want to admit defeat by Ukraine. It doesn’t want to admit that such a cruiser sank.
