In the Black Sea, about 75 km southwest of Cape Tarkhankut (coordinates 44 °56’N 31°44’E), where the site of the sinking of the destroyed Moskva missile cruiser, there is increased activity of rescue and diving boats of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. We can assume that the Russians are planning to raise the cruiser, as well as look for some weapons that were at a depth of 50-60 m. These are nuclear warheads of P-1000 Vulcan anti-ship missiles. This was reported by Defense Express .
Assumptions that some of the P-1000 Vulcan anti-ship missiles aboard the Moskva may have nuclear warheads , was made at a time when the fate of the ship was unknown. The fact is that the P-1000 Vulcan can be equipped with either a high-explosive warhead weighing 500 kg or a nuclear power of 350 kt. It is unknown at this time whether there were missiles on board with such warheads or not, and no one will believe Russia’s statements about this, of course. And although American intelligence does not believe in such a possibility , we, knowing the Russians, would not be so sure.
In any case, the Russians are searching for lost secret documents, the bodies of the dead members of the cruiser’s crew and are inspecting the ammunition of the P-1000 Vulcan missile system. In addition, there are reports that the occupiers want to raise the sunken cruiser with the help of stolen in 2014 Ukrainian drilling towers of Chornomornaftogaz – Petro Godovanets and Ukraine, better known as Boyko towers.
Well, good luck to them. Even in case they manage to raise it, it is unlikely that Moskva cruiser will be suitable for repair. And if they still dare to repair it, this ship will be the second Kuzya (aircraft carrier Admiral of the Soviet Navy Kuznetsov), which for 30 years has been withdrawing money from the Russian budget and drowning rascist planes.
