In Photos: The Victims of Russia's Sunken Moskva Cruiser

The April 13 sinking of Russia’s Black Sea flagship, the Moskva, off the Ukrainian coast has left a trail of questions in its wake. The Kremlin has so far failed to acknowledge any casualties onboard the missile cruiser, which it claims sunk as a result of an accidental munitions explosion. The Ukrainian military says that the ship was in fact hit by one of its missiles.

These conflicting narratives and a lack of information have caused distress for the families of those serving on board the ship, some of whom have since been listed as dead or missing.

The Moscow Times has compiled a list of some of the men confirmed dead or missing since the incident, according to media outlets or social media posts by family members.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
