A Russian warship stationed in the Black Sea has sunk, according to a Russian state-owned media report. Earlier in the day, the flagship missile cruiser from the Black Sea fleet was hit by a Ukrainian missile attack and evacuated, according to Ukrainian authorities.

The U.K.'s Defense Ministry said the sinking of the Russian Moskva warship will likely prompt Moscow to reconsider its maritime strategy.

On Thursday, Republican lawmakers Senator Steve Daines (R-MO) and Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN) visited Kyiv and Bucha, becoming the first known American officials to visit Ukraine since Russia began its invasion in late February.

Meanwhile, German authorities seized the world's largest superyacht following official confirmation that the vessel has links to Russian billionaire and business tycoon Alisher Usmanov.
