Reports have emerged suggesting that the Russian Federation’s patrol ship, “Pavlo Derzhavin,” of the Project 22160 Vasily Bikiv type, may have sustained damage in the occupied region of Crimea. The exact nature of the incident remains uncertain.

The revelation was made by Anton Herashchenko, an advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs, today. Herashchenko emphasized that there is currently no precise information available regarding the circumstances surrounding the potential damage to the vessel. He noted that the incident could be attributed to a missile strike or a drone attack, but it remains unclear.

In June 2022, “Pavlo Derzhavin” had bolstered its armaments by equipping a Zenith missile system, “Tor-M2KM,” on its stern. This upgrade was part of a broader effort to enhance the ship’s capabilities and security features.

The incident raises questions about the stability and security of the occupied Crimea region, where tensions have been escalating in recent years. Since Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014, the peninsula has been a focal point of international disputes and has witnessed increased military presence and activities.

The lack of clear information regarding the incident on “Pavlo Derzhavin” underscores the need for a thorough investigation to determine the extent of the damage, the circumstances leading up to the incident, and any potential implications for the ongoing geopolitical situation in Crimea.

Efforts to gather more details and clarify the situation are underway, with both Russian and international authorities likely to be closely monitoring the developments in this sensitive region. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing challenges and uncertainties associated with Crimea’s status and security.
