Ukraine claims its military has killed top Russian admiral at headquarters of the Russian navy

Ukraine's military claims that its missile strike on the Crimean headquarters of the Russian navy killed the fleet commander.

The report has not been independently confirmed, but if true would mark a major accomplishment in Ukraine's defense of its land.

The special operation

"Ukraine’s Special Operation Forces said on the Telegram messaging app that its strike on the main building of the Black Sea Fleet headquarters in the port city of Sevastopol had wounded 105 people. The claims could not independently be verified and are vastly different from what Russia has reported," Breitbart News reported.

"Russia’s military announced the attack on the building and initially said one serviceman was killed but later said the person was not killed but missing. Moscow has provided no further updates," it added.

A major win

"The commander of the fleet is Viktor Sokolov. The Ukrainian statement did not name him directly," NBC News reported.

“If true it would likely be the highest ranking naval officer killed in combat since WWII,” the chief international security analyst for NBC News, retired Adm. James Stavridis, a former NATO supreme allied commander, posted on X, according to the report.

Tanks arrive

The news comes as the first Abrams tanks for the U.S. have just arrived in Ukraine, according to CBS News.

"The first American-made Abrams tanks are now rolling out on Ukrainian soil as Ukraine's forces claimed to have dealt a significant blow to the leadership of Russia's fleet in the Black Sea," it noted.

"Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed the arrival of the tanks on the Telegram messaging app: 'Good news from Minister (of Defense Rustem) Umerov. Abrams are already in Ukraine and are being prepared to reinforce our brigades,'" it continued.

Zelensky also just completed a visit to New York where he spoke to U.N. leaders and to Washington where he visited with American lawmakers.

The military operations in Ukraine continue to advance with American support, despite questions from many over how much help should continue to help in the fight against Russia.
