4 Countries Want to Buy “Neptune” That Sunk “Moskva”

Ukrainian missiles that destroyed the flagship of the Russian fleet drew the attention of the world to the defense industry of Ukraine

On April 13, Ukrainians fired 2 domestically produced Neptune missiles into the Russian cruiser Moskva, and on April 14 it sank. According to Forbes, a Russian warship could cost around $750 million.

After the success of Neptune in the Black Sea, representatives of US departments for the better strengthened their opinion on the Ukrainian defense industry.

“For Ukrainians, if they were able to sink or damage this ship with their Neptune missiles, this is a reason for pride. The Washington Post is also a useful military resource for deterring Russian ships,” The Washington Post.

According to the publication, citing an authoritative person, today 4 countries have already expressed their interest in purchasing Neptune missiles. On the night of April 15, the Russians blew up the factory that produced the Neptune rockets out of revenge for Moskva. However, Ukraine will rebuild it and, if necessary, expand the existing factories to produce missiles.

"This is a powerful boost for Ukraine — not only for its military viability but also for its own defense industry," The Washington Post.
