Multiple Ukrainian drones attempted to strike Sevastopol on Thursday morning, according to the governor of the Crimean port city that hosts Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. The attack was reportedly fended off with no damage caused by the UAVs.
“Early in the morning, our military repelled another drone attack on Sevastopol,” Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev wrote in a Telegram message.
At least two UAVs were shot down with small arms by the Black Sea Fleet forces, while “several more” were neutralized and downed using electronic warfare, the official claimed. The military has yet to issue a statement.
“No facilities in the city were damaged,” Razvozhaev said, adding that all security services “continue to monitor the situation.”
