Russian propaganda Telegram channels, citing their sources, reported an alleged ATACMS missile strike on the Tsiklon ship on the night of May 19. On the morning of May 19, however, the General Staff reported that Ukrainian forces had destroyed the Russian minesweeper Kovrovets overnight, with no mention of the Tsiklon.

The Ukrainian OSINT project CyberBoroshno determined from satellite imagery that the Tsiklon missile ship was in port on May 17, 200 meters east of the Kovrovets minesweeper.

Meanwhile, the local pro-Ukrainian channel Krymsky Veter reported that a building near where the Tsiklon had been two days before the attack was damaged on the night of May 19.

Researchers note that the hit on the vessel can only be confirmed with fresh satellite images.
