Sevastopol repelled drone attack, occupied Crimea’s authorities say

Sevastopol repelled drone attack, occupied Crimea’s authorities say

Movement over the Sevastopol bay has been temporarily suspended after a reported drone attack, Russia’s state-controlled TASS reported, citing the occupation authorities of occupied Crimea.

According to the Russian occupation governor of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvozhaev, at 4:30 AM, air defense repelled drone attacks, including an underwater drone, and all attacks were repelled.

Local TG channels shared videos of the air defense shooting down aerial drones and a surface drone flying just above water

The attack with drones on Sevastopol was “the most massive since the start of the special operation” and targeted the military facilities of the Black Sea Fleet according to Sevastopol’s occupation governor Razvozhaev, TASS reported.

9 UAVs, 7 unmanned sea vehicles were destroyed in the attack on Sevastopol. The trawler Ivan Holubets and a boom net barrier were damaged, the Russian MoD has claimed, accusing British specialists in Ochakiv of supervising Ukrainians to carry out this “terrorist act.”

Unverified footage from a surveillance camera spreading online purports to show a heavy explosion in the bay in the night. Following the attack, the occupation authorities had announced that surveillance cameras will be no longer available to the general public.

According to Flight Radar, a Global Hawk US surveillance UAV was present in the Black Sea during the drone attack, having flown in from Italy. Russian media write that it was possibly seeking out weak zones in Sevastopol’s air defense.
