A Russian frigate equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles arrived in the Black Sea. Since then, an increased number of surveillance drones have been spotted along the southern front, as reported by the Operational Command South.

“The number of enemy missile carriers in the Black Sea is rising, and air surveillance has been stepped up. As a result of a frigate joining two submarines, there are now 16 Kalibr missiles at their disposal. There appears to be an increase in the use of surveillance UAVs near the front lines,” stated the Command’s press release.
