- Video: SCALP Cruise Missile “Tears in Two” the Headquarters of the Russian Fleet in Sevastopol – Fury in Moscow: “It’s Time for an Ultimatum to the West”

Another video of today’s Ukrainian attack against the Headquarters of the Russian Fleet in Sevastopol was made public. The video clearly shows the missile hitting the Russian Fleet Headquarters, while it is clear that another missile has preceded it.
Russian sources are talking about two SCALP missiles and not Storm Shadow. It is a given that the number of casualties will increase for the Russians. The building has been destroyed as the rockets penetrated several floors. The fire was burning until a while ago.
The Ukrainians report that Admiral Viktor Sokolov, Commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, was killed but this information is not confirmed. It is perhaps the most serious Ukrainian blow in recent months. The Russians intercepted 5-6 StormShadow/Scalp missiles but the last two found their target passing through Russian air defenses of S-400, Pantsir etc hitting the best protected point in Crimea.
An evacuation was announced at the Black Sea Fleet headquarters at the time of the missile strike. The main personnel and civil servants were withdrawn. A conscript from the guard died.
In Sevastopol, after the missile attack, judging by the video, smoke screens were put up.… pic.twitter.com/rBOiMEu6TK
