The Ukrainian army released a video on Monday showing two Russian patrol boats being blown up in the Black Sea.

The second boat – which was in motion – suffers the same fate.

The reported destruction comes a few weeks after the Russian warship Moskva sank in the Black Sea.

In mid-April, a US official told Fox News that the US believes the flagship was hit by two Ukrainian missiles before going under water.

The Russian missile cruiser Moskva, the flagship of the Russian Black Sea fleet, dropped anchor in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol on September 11, 2008.

The Moskva was about 60 nautical miles south of Odessa at the time of the explosion.

Moscow claimed the ship sank after a fire on board caused an explosion.
