Russia has claimed to have blitzed the factory which made the missiles that sank their prized flagship Moskva.
The defence ministry said it had rocketed the ‘Vizar’ plant on the edge of Kyiv on Thursday night which it says manufactures Neptune anti-ship missiles.
And it promised more strikes against the Ukrainian capital as they seek revenge for the sinking of their prized ship.
The ministry said its forces had also completely taken control of the Ilyich Steel Plant in the besieged port city of Mariupol.

Russia said on Wednesday that 1,026 soldiers of Ukraine’s 36th Marine Brigade, including 162 officers, had surrendered near the steel plant.
Mariupol, which has been encircled by Russian troops for weeks, has seen the fiercest fighting and the most comprehensive destruction since Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on Feb. 24.
