“We didn’t present Ukraine with particular focusing on data for the Moskva,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby in a press release Thursday evening.

“We weren’t concerned within the Ukrainians’ determination to strike the ship or within the operation they carried out. We had no prior information of Ukraine’s intent to focus on the ship.”

“The Ukrainians have their very own intelligence capabilities to trace and goal Russian naval vessels, as they did on this case,” Kirby added.

Ukraine claimed to have struck the ship with two Neptune anti-ship missiles in mid-April.

The ship then sank because it was being towed again to Russia’s seaport for repairs. Russia stated the harm to the ship was the results of the detonation of ammunition.
