Partisans have discovered the relocation by the Russian Federation of ship repair bases from the temporarily occupied Crimea to Novorossiysk - the new location of the Black Sea Fleet, according to the partisan movement ATESH.

Agents specifically report regular transportation of Russian ship engines from Crimea towards Taman.

"It is likely that the occupants are enhancing their capabilities for repairing military vessels in Novorossiysk. In the city where the base of the Black Sea Fleet is now located," the report says.

Partisans believe that the successful strikes by the Defense Forces on military targets in temporarily occupied Crimea are the reason for these actions.

"We are confident that the Black Sea Fleet will turn into a river swamp flotilla. Or will be completely destroyed," say the ATESH partisans.

Losses of the Russian Black Sea Fleet ships

Since the start of the full-scale invasion, Russia has lost almost a third of its Black Sea Fleet group.

Thus, irrecoverable losses of the Russian Black Sea Fleet amount to 27 units, including 14 serious vessels. Among them are large landing ships, missile boats, the submarine Rostov-on-Don, and a patrol ship. However, the aggressor manages to replenish its fleet.

In particular, on March 5, the Defense Forces destroyed the Russian ship Sergei Kotov near Kerch. In particular, the Ka-27 helicopter located on board the ship was destroyed during the strike. As a result of the attack, 27 crew members were injured.

On February 14, the Armed Forces destroyed the landing ship Tsezar Kunikov in the Black Sea.

And on December 27, 2023, in the occupied Feodosia, the large landing Russian ship Novocherkassk was destroyed.

However, according to the Institute for the Study of War, despite the withdrawal of some Russian Black Sea Fleet assets from the main base in Sevastopol, this base remains the only one in the Black Sea capable of repairing certain types of ships.
