Powerful Explosions
The Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, is witnessing a series of powerful explosions. On Friday, April 15, one after another, these explosions started in the morning local time. At the same time, alarm sirens are being sounded throughout Ukraine in fear of renewed Russian attacks.

Russia lost one of its most powerful warships in the Black Sea in an explosion last Wednesday, followed by a series of powerful explosions in Kyiv and sirens of airstrikes across Ukraine.

Earlier this month, Russian troops withdrew from the capital and surrounding areas in preparation for war in southern and eastern Ukraine, the report said. However, after the Russian warship sank in the Black Sea after an explosion, the explosion in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and surrounding areas seems to be the most important.

No casualties were reported immediately after the blasts in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, the southern city of Kherson, the eastern city of Kharkiv and the western city of Ivano-Frankivsk. However, Ukrainian media reported power outages in several parts of Kyiv.

According to Ukrainian media, the sirens of the airstrikes sounded in all parts of Ukraine just after midnight on Friday. Even in the eastern part of Luhansk and Zaporizhiya, sirens continue to sound.

The name of this Russian warship that sank in the Black Sea is Moscow. Ukraine has claimed responsibility for the sinking. The Eastern European country claims that its military has launched a missile attack on the Russian navy's flagship in the Black Sea.

Russia, however, said the fire caused the ship's ammunition to explode. Later, all the crew of the ship was evacuated to a separate Russian ship near the Black Sea. No further details were released.

Russia's Defense Ministry says the Black Sea Fleet's flagship sank in a "rough sea" as it was taking Moscow to port. The missile cruiser, driven by a crew of 510, was a symbol of Russia's military might. The Russian warship was originally led by Russia in its naval attack against Ukraine.

The Moscow warship is the flagship of Russia's Black Sea Fleet. Flagship is a ship used by a captain to lead a fleet. Flagship ships are generally much faster and more powerful than other ships in the Navy.

Cruiser Moscow has been leading the Russian navy in the Black Sea since 2000. Michael Peterson, a professor at Russia's Maritime Studies Institute, told that the 12,500-ton Moscow ship was one of the symbols of Russian naval power. The ship has played a key role in many Russian military operations, including in Syria.

It is noteworthy that although the ship is now used for attacking Ukraine, it was built in the 1980s at a dockyard in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.
