In a dramatic escalation of the Ukraine war, footage authenticated by BBC Verify reveals the chilling moment a Ukrainian missile struck the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea fleet in Crimea. Moscow confirmed that one serviceman is missing in the aftermath of this attack on Sevastopol.

The Ukrainian military, according to a BBC source, claimed responsibility for the strike, alleging the use of Storm Shadow missiles, which are reportedly supplied by Britain and France. However, this claim remains unverified.

The Black Sea fleet is a prized asset for Russia, making it a prime target for Kyiv. Ukraine has recently launched several attacks in Crimea, targeting an air-defence system and two naval vessels.

Amidst these events, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed gratitude to Canada during his speech in the Canadian parliament. He praised Canada’s unwavering support and emphasized that the ongoing struggle was about “saving the lives of millions of people.”

In response, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged substantial support, including armoured vehicles and training for fighter jet pilots, further intensifying the international response to the conflict.
