The British Defense Ministry has confirmed that Russia's newest corvette in the Karakurst class was destroyed in a missile attack on a shipyard in the city of Kerch on the occupied Crimean peninsula last Saturday.

This information aligns with the reports from Ukrainian and Russian authorities.

The attack, which hit deeper into Crimea than most previous Ukrainian strikes, targeted shipbuilding infrastructure.

According to Ukraine's Center for Strategic Communication, StratCom, this incident has resulted in significant damage to one of Russia's latest corvettes.

The British Defense Ministry's latest intelligence update from the war suggests that this attack might lead to strategic changes for Russia in the region.

Ukraine's ability to strike at the shipbuilding infrastructure in Crimea is likely to force Russia to consider relocating its naval assets further from the frontline.

This shift could potentially delay the delivery of new ships, affecting Russia's military strategies in the area.
