The Russian military has sunk one of its decommissioned vessels at a bay in the Crimean peninsula, apparently to block the movement of Ukrainian naval vessels.
The overturned Russian ship lies at the entrance to Donuzlav Bay, which is connected to the Black Sea.
A Ukrainian Defense Ministry official said the Russians sank the ship by themselves on Wednesday with the intention of preventing Ukrainian naval vessels from going to sea.
Russia's Black Sea Fleet missile cruiser Moskva was in nearby waters on Saturday, monitoring activity on the bay.
