Russia on Wednesday published more video of Adm. Viktor Sokolov, the commander of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, in efforts to counter Kyiv’s claims that he died in a Ukrainian strike on the fleet’s headquarters in occupied Crimea last week. Russia’s state-run defense TV channel, a local TV channel and pro-Russian telegram channels released video of Sokolov speaking — but it is not clear when the footage was filmed. Ukraine’s special operations forces said Tuesday it was “clarifying the information” regarding Sokolov’s status. Sokolov would be the highest-ranking official killed by Ukraine since the war began.
