A wooden icon of the Russian naval commander Fyodor Ushakov, canonized, miraculously survived the attack of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. This was announced by the city governor Mikhail Razfozhaev.
“Centuries later, the invincible admiral [Ушаков] continues to defend Sevastopol and gives confidence in a new Victory. <...> The day before, Father Sergius wrote to me that the wooden frame was completely burned, and the image of the saint, written on the tree, survived and was not touched by fire after the attack of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. You and I have witnessed a real miracle,” Mikhail Razvozhaev wrote on his Telegram. The governor stated that he intends to invite Archpriest Sergius Khalyuta and fleet commander Viktor Sokolov to make a procession with the icon of Ushakov throughout Sevastopol.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet on September 22. Presumably, Kyiv struck with British Storm Shadow cruise missiles, reports TV channel 360. However, the British Foreign Ministry did not confirm this information, reports RT. As a result of the shelling, one military man was killed, writes the business publication “Sight” It was also reported that there were no casualties among the civilian population.
