British Prime Minister revealed: Russia attacked civilian cargo ship with missile

“We know from declassified intelligence that the Russian military fired multiple missiles at a civilian cargo ship in the Black Sea on August 24,” Sunak told the House of Commons, as he attended the G20 summit in New Delhi last weekend.

The British Foreign Office later indicated that the target of the attack was a Liberian-flagged cargo ship docked in port and that it was fired upon by a Russian Black Sea Fleet vessel. The attack used, among others, two Kalibr missiles, but none of the missiles hit the target as they were shot down by Ukrainian air defenses.
