An alternative to the official mainstream version of the sinking of the Russian cruiser Moskva: a covert attack. It never happened. We were never there!
Let’s suppose that was not a Ukrainian-launched missile to hit that ship.
That is just because I don’t think that a well-trained professional and experienced Commander of that ship would have ever run the risk of being hit by a Ukrainian-launched missile if this was in the scope of real chances… I prefer to think that was a surprise attack absolutely unpredictable. Otherwise, her Commander would have been absolutely amateurish.
So something else mostly launched by a different platform may hit the Russian cruiser Moskva.
Something like the US, rather than the UK, rather than the French submarine that would have entered the Black Sea passing through the Bosporus and Dardanelles Straits probably submerged because of the Montreux Convention. Experts say it is possible.
Not necessarily a nuclear one, it could have been useful for the purpose of submarine diesel-electric power. And the weapon that may have hit the Russian cruiser Moskva could have been a Tomahawk TLAM cruise missile but likewise, just a simple torpedo would have been useful for the purpose of neutralizing that ship. With the advantage, in this case, employing an obsolete technology of being absolutely unpredictable. Following the possible state-of-the-art protocols, I guess. Undetectable by radars but just by sonars. Perhaps less fashionable up to date today.
But if this happened, if my hypothesis was right, then why the Russians didn’t report a similar violation of the law of nations so extremely seriously? Shouting it to the entire world and to the UN and G20 as a propaganda weapon that would be so useful to Russia at the present moment in the purpose of restoring its image mainly in the West being now as a victim of the West itself. Why not?
Just because this violation of the law of nations really happened as I believe is so extremely serious to request a necessary escalation even to make war openly with NATO. As a necessary answer to the Russian people to this aggression direct from NATO. A choice that the Russian government, however, I suppose does not want to adhere to for obvious reasons of prudence.
And of self-preservation for the human species, I guess.
In the end, this case reminds me in some way of the case of Soviet submarine B59 during the Cuba missiles Crisis on October 27, 1962, and of its Commander Vassily Arkhipov.
With the reversal of the roles of attacker and attack between the submarine and the ship.
Then the US ship was the attacker and the Soviet submarine was the attacked, now is (maybe) an alleged Western submarine the attacker, and a Russian cruiser ship that attacked. That later sank.
In both cases, the Soviet/Russian Commander’s (and Government’s) self-denial and silence saved the World from the Eve of destruction. For now. Hopefully.
