Crimean resident Dmitry Shkrebets, whose son Yegor Shkrebets was reported missing after the sinking of the cruiser "Moscow" in April, said he had received a death certificate for his son.

- After the death of the cruiser "Moskva (Moscow)" in mid-April, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that the crew had been completely evacuated. However, soon family members of sailors (mainly conscripts) began to write in social networks about the disappearance or death of their relatives who served on the ship. Dmitry Shkrebets was one of the first among these people.
- The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation claimed that the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, the cruiser Moskva, sank after ammunition allegedly detonated due to a fire. Ukrainian sources said that the Ukrainian military sank the ship.
- The exact number of sailors who died in the "Moscow" is unknown. A Meduza source close to the command of the Black Sea Fleet spoke of the death of 37 people. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation recognised the death of one person and declared 27 sailors missing.
