Of the 510 crew members of the Moskva missile cruiser sunk by the Ukrainian military, only 58 people were rescued.
Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, announced this in an interview with Ukrayinska Pravda .
“We believe they saved 58 people. We cannot confirm this, but preliminary it turns out that this is so. But they hide it. In total, there were 510 sailors on the cruiser. However, if the person is not there, there is nothing to bury, there is no need to perform any ceremony. Missing, disappeared. This is the policy of the Russians,” he said.
At the same time, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council noted that the Ukrainian side, unlike the Russian Federation, honors every soldier who died in this war.
“And the Russians simply don’t pay attention to their dead, they are for them what they have, what they don’t, an empty place,” Danilov added.
Recall that the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation “Moskva” was hit by Ukrainian missiles “Neptune” on the evening of April 13. As a result of the hit, the ammunition detonated, and the cruiser sank.
