British intelligence: Russian Black Sea Fleet under threat even in Novorossiysk

< p> Any demonstration of Ukraine's ability to threaten Novorossiysk will be a challenge for the Russian Federation. This is stated in the intelligence summary of the British Ministry of Defense.

According to intelligence, the Russian Black Sea Fleet has shifted many of its submarine operations to Novorossiysk after Ukraine struck their base in Sevastopol in the occupied Crimea in the summer. Russian commanders are likely to be concerned about threats to the Novorossiysk-based amphibious assault flotilla.

These vessels are relatively vulnerable without escort and play a more important role in the supply of Russian forces to Ukraine after the destruction of the Crimean bridge in October.

The British Defense Ministry believes that any demonstration of Ukraine's ability to threaten Novorossiysk is likely to become a further strategic challenge for the Black Sea Fleet. It would also further undermine Russia's already diminished maritime influence in the Black Sea.

  • On November 18, a number of Russian and Ukrainian media outlets reported that an oil terminal had been attacked in the port of Novorossiysk on Russia's Black Sea coast. Near the oil terminal there is a large base of the Black Sea Fleet.
