At least 14 warships of the Russian Navy approached the coast of Odessa. The shore of the village of Tuzla has already been shelled from the board of military ships, missiles have been sent towards Belgorod-Dnestrovsk and temporarily stopped in the roadstead.

Advisor announced this to the Minister of Internal Affairs Anton Gerashchenko on his Telegram channel. He assured that the enemy used artillery to "probe" the fortification and defense systems on the coastline.

They fired a huge amount of ammunition from a long distance. The invaders wanted to test our coastal defense system, and they did not achieve any results. There were no attempts to land troops

The vessels were found by Naval News with the help of Damien Symon, an independent defense analyst. Preliminary analysis of the vessels suggests 3 groups. Two are made up of combatants, and one has several landing ships. The landing ships appear to have sailed directly from their staging position off the Crimean coast. A tug or minesweeper probably leads the northern group. Behind it are two Ropucha-class landing craft, another tug and a Ropuch trailer.

The second group is apparently made up of smaller warships such as missile corvettes. The Slava-class cruiser Moskva leads the southern group. It likely includes two Alligator-class landing craft and the Ivan Gren-class landing craft Pyotr Morgunov. There is also a smaller warship, possibly a Buyan-M class missile corvette.

Analysts are searching the imagery for more vessels.
