Russia’s Interfax news agency on April 29 reported that this is the first time the Russian military has used submarines to attack Ukrainian targets.
The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video showing a series of Kalibr missiles emerging from the sea and flying straight into the horizon – where “Ukraine’s military targets are located”.

Meanwhile, Moscow has also admitted that its forces attacked the Ukrainian capital Kiev during the visit of the UN chief.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the high-precision long-range weapon likely “destroyed the production buildings of the Artyom Space and Missile Company in Kiev”.
On April 29, Russia said the air strike on Kiev took place during a visit by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the first such attack on the Ukrainian capital in nearly two weeks.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the airstrikes, which came shortly after his talks with Guterres.
That morning, Mr. Guterres visited Bucha and other suburbs of Kiev, where Moscow is accused of war crimes. However, Russia denies killing civilians.
Russia is currently increasing its activities in the Donbas region, eastern Ukraine and tightening the siege on the port city of Mariupol, in the south of Ukraine.
Ukrainian authorities announced that they planned to evacuate civilians from the besieged Azovstal steel plant, the last stop in Mariupol, on April 29.
The Ukrainian side admits that Russian forces have captured a series of villages in the Donbas. In contrast, the Ukrainian army, supplied with weapons by its Western allies, also reported small victories along the front lines.
