Russia destroys four Ukraine inflatable war boats in Black Sea

Russian naval aviation destroyed early on Monday four US-made inflatable boats with Ukraine's landing forces in the northwestern part of the Black Sea, the Russian defense ministry said on the Telegram messaging app.

The ministry said the US-made Willard Marine Sea Force inflatable boats were heading in the direction of Cape Tarkhankut on the Crimean Peninsula.

Reuters could not independently verify the report. There was no immediate comment from Ukraine.
