Does Russia lose another piece of its fleet in the Black Sea? According to intelligence sources, it could be the Ataman Platov, a Dyugon-class landing craft (Project 21820), sunk by the Ukrainian armed forces in the last few hours off Snake Island. At the moment, however, there are no official confirmations. Moscow has just five of these vessels, three of which are deployed in the Baltic fleet, one in the Pacific and the last, the Ataman Platov, in the Caspian. If the news were confirmed, it would be a further blow to Russia, which has already lost at least two latest generation T-90 M super tanks, destroyed by old weapons such as the Carl Gustav grenade launchers. The war against Ukraine, however it ends, will have a very high cost for Moscow from an economic-military point of view. Replacing the lost vehicles, in fact, will require a lot of resources and time. This, provided we are able to find the necessary materials, the purchase of which is currently blocked due to international sanctions.
