Attack in port city: Ukraine hits Russian warship

A Russian warship was apparently hit in an attack on the Russian port city of Novorossiysk.

It is said to be the “Olenegorsky Gornyak”, like Reported. Several videos on social media show footage of a sea drone racing toward a ship. This information has not yet been independently confirmed. Furthermore, videos have surfaced showing a Russian warship clearly leaning and being pulled by a tugboat toward the port. According to Sky News, a Ukraine intelligence official has since confirmed the attack on the Russian base to Reuters news agency.
