The photos show that the cruiser landed on the port side, which corresponds to the message of the Russian Defense Ministry about the loss of stability and a photo where Moskva is listing to the port side.

No less interesting is the second picture, which shows the wreckage of a helicopter. Most likely, these are all that remains of the Ka-27 multi-role helicopter (Helix according to NATO classification), which was part of the aviation group of the cruiser Moskva and was based on its board.

We remind you that fragments of the sunken flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation gained the status of the object of the underwater cultural heritage of Ukraine and was registered under number 2064.
