Heavy blow: Russia destroys three Ukrainian ships in the Black Sea

According to the Defense Ministry in Moscow, the Russian army has identified and destroyed three unmanned boats from Ukraine in the Black Sea.

This was reported by the RIA news agency. In the past, the Ukrainian Navy has used water drones for attacks on Russian ships, as the German news website tagesschau.de reported. Earlier, Ukraine’s missile attacks on the occupied port city of Sevastopol in Crimea damaged two warships, as reported by the German news platform n-tv.de. The Russian Ministry of Defense said that these two ships, which were undergoing repairs, sustained damage from hits by enemy cruise missiles. However, no further details were provided.
