Military Intelligence: Russian large landing ship Yamal sustains critical damage

Ukraine’s Military Intelligence reported on 25 March that the damage to the large Russian landing ship Yamal was critical.

Ukraine’s Armed Forces reported on 24 March about striking large landing ships Yamal and Azov, a communications center and several infrastructure facilities of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, the city in Russian-occupied Crimea

Ukraine’s Military Intelligence reported on 25 March that the damage to the Yamal ship was critical. In particular, a hole in the upper deck caused it to roll to starboard.

According to Ukraine’s intel, the Russian occupying force continuously pumped water out of the damaged ship, which took part in the annexation of Crimea and was undergoing repairs from 2017 to 2023.

The Russian-appointed governor of annexed Sevastopol said that the attack on Sevastopol was “the most massive in recent times.” He said Russian Air Forces shot down more than ten missiles.

Ukraine recently increased its long-range strikes with drones and cruise missiles on the Black Sea Fleet to push Russian ships further away from the Ukrainian coast. It led to substantial vessel losses for Russia in the Black Sea.

Ukrainian forces have disabled approximately 33% of all combat ships in the Russian Black Sea Fleet since the start of the full-scale invasion, according to the Strategic Communications of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
