"If during the transition from the Crimean coast to Ochakov the Ukrainian side was able to destroy the vessel and bring the plumbing to an improper state, then this is a problem of the Ukrainian side," it was noted in the FSB’s material.

As we reported earlier, Commander of the Naval Forces of Ukraine Ihor Voronchenko informed on the state of the vessels that Russia returned to Ukraine after capturing them in the Kerch Strait in 2018

According to him, they were completely damaged, were not capable of going on their own, and even the ceiling lights, electric connectors and toilets inside were deinstalled by the Russians.

"The Russians destroyed them. They even removed the ceiling lights, electric connectors and toilets. So now we will show this world the barbaric attitude of the Russians," Voronchenko said.
