On 4 August H I Sutton, a naval expert, reported that a Russian ship near occupied Sevastopol had begun to release a smokescreen and was then enveloped in dark smoke. In Sutton’s opinion, the Russians were trying to camouflage the ship but it was nevertheless hit by a Ukrainian missile, which was why it was wrapped in smoke.
