After the defeat of the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol, 34 officers were killed, including the commander of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation Viktor Sokolov. This is a strong blow to the occupiers, because there were many communication channels in the destroyed building, so now there is no one and how to coordinate the fleet.

This was told by a military expert, an employee of the Security Service of Ukraine in 2004-2015. Ivan Stupak on the air of "Espresso".

"First of all, there is no head of the fleet, the person who led the whole process. It's not only ships, it's economy, supplies, fuel, food, water, ammunition, various warehouses, training. Now there is no top that can provide this. In emergency mode, the Russian General Staff or the Kremlin will now decide how to manage the Black Sea Fleet, who will perform duties, who and in which building will be located," the expert says.

"In the destroyed building of the Black Sea Fleet, there are a large number of communication channels - wires, government communications. That is, the building cannot be restored, there is no communication, and it is also unclear how to coordinate the Black Sea Fleet at sea on the ground," he said.

"Of course, this is also an image story. A country that does not have a fleet destroyed the commander of the enemy fleet during a big meeting," Ivan Stupak summed up.
