Moskva means Moscow. The Russian freaking FLAGSHIP in flames

apparently is named for Moscow, the capital. Omen? Would be good.

Reports still to be confirmed. But so far lots of reports saying the freaking FLAGSHIP of the Republican Party, ooops, my bad, I mean the Russian Butchery Machine, is in flames.

7. It's mourning in Moskva

May the mourning lead Moscow and Russia to some serious self-evaluation about this pointless, mindless, evil slaughter of Ukraine's people.

Unless we’re doing naval gunfire support, we did our thing on the deep blue sea.

Crossposting an article from Forbes, no paywall: https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidaxe/2022/04/04/a-russian-attack-on-odessa-could-be-naval-suicide/?sh=6f326a3e3e7e

It makes a persuasive case for the sheer stupidity of attacking Odessa by sea.

19. I saw a later article by that same guy dated for today

who cautioned about the reports and consider it with a grain of salt (and he included what it would take to carry that type of assault out). However he didn't rule it out and gave as justification the fact that 1 out of 2 earlier reports of ships being taken out, actually being confirmed - https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidaxe/2022/04/13/the-ukrainians-claim-they-damaged-a-russian-cruiser-be-skeptical/?sh=37f0d73f3971

24. "As result of the fire that hit the Moskva missile cruiser, the ammunition has detonated"

If history of other ships that had their ammunition stores detonate due to a warhead impact is an indication, this Russian ship is not going to be around long, if its not already sitting on the bottom.
