The fate of Vladimir Putin’s Black Fleet chief Igor Osipov is reportedly shrouded in mystery after it emerged the Admiral “has not been seen alive” since the sinking of the Moskva warship last month. last.

Sources in kyiv say there are suspicions that he was on board the ship when it was hit by Ukrainian coastal defense missiles.

Russia has so far admitted to one death in the Moskva, but it is clear that many more were killed. It’s also unclear how many were injured and where they might be receiving treatment as a result.

Ukraine, meanwhile, initially claimed Putin had detained Osipov amid his fury over the attack, while other reports suggested he had been suspended from duty.

Neither theory was confirmed by Moscow, but Russian officials insisted earlier this week that the 49-year-old was at his “combat station” but was “in no mood” to face the public.

The Admiral was notably absent from Monday’s Red Square Victory Day parade, which he was routinely expected to attend.

His name was listed as present at a Black Sea Fleet Day on May 7, only to have it later removed.

Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev said: “Our commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Igor Vladimirovich Osipov, is now at his combat post.

“Of course he’s not in the mood for social media and congratulations, but I’m sure he and our Black Sea people feel our support.”

However, several kyiv sources say that Osipov has not been seen “live” since the sinking of the flagship on April 14.

“The Black Sea Fleet is discussing whether Osipov could have been on board the Moskva cruiser at the time of the attack,” said a pro-kyiv source, who claimed to have insider knowledge of the Russian navy.

Meanwhile, the Russian Telegram channel VChK-OGPU reported that no one had seen Osipov face-to-face in a month, despite his name being seen on recently signed documents.

Yegor Shkrebets, 20, has not been seen since the Moskva warship sank

If he was on board the ship, his fate would be covered by the lack of clarity the Russian Defense Ministry has provided about the incident. At the time, Moscow claimed the cause was due to a fire on board rather than a missile attack.

The father of a missing and presumed dead sailor on the warship said after a meeting with authorities last week: “The Black Sea Fleet and the Defense Ministry will clarify the numbers of dead and wounded on the Moskva cruiser when see fit.”

Dmitry Shkrebets, who believes that the truth is covered up, added: “I hope that the military prosecutor’s office and the FSB leadership will thoroughly investigate the causes of the absurd loss of the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet… and the results will be made public to the people of Russia.”
