Russia Sinks Own Warship?

The Russian Navy Ochakov Kara-class cruiser was sunk on Thursday to blockade the Ukrainian Navy ships deployed in Novoozerne.

The Ukrainian military of the South Naval Base were observing the operation, and can confirm it.

The Russian ships blocking the Ukrainian ships in Donuszlav Lake left the zone at 23:30 p.m. (March 5).

Then, the Russian military towed the Ochakov and put it in the navigating channel. They filled her with water, and some sort of explosion followed.

Why headline Russia sinks own warship? when you can write Russia scuttles own warship!

Misleading headlines are more balanced...

"Scuttle" failed the reading difficulty optimiser.
