|Casualties and losses|
The Berdiansk port attack was a strike carried out by Ukrainian forces against Russian Navy ships moored in the Port of Berdiansk on 24 March 2022, during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Alligator-class landing ship Saratov was sunk, and one of the two Ropucha-class landing ships took damage but was able to leave the port.
At the time, it was the heaviest naval loss suffered by Russia during the invasion, and one of Ukraine's most significant successes.
(Translation) On March 24, the Ukrainian Armed Forces fired rockets at the port of Berdyansk, damaging two large landing ships. A strong fire broke out at the large landing ship "Saratov", as a result it had to be sunk at the pier. In fact, this shelling is the only more or less significant success of the Ukrainian military in the confrontation with the Russian fleet
