Ukraine launches an attack on Crimea – but it ends in disaster

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense in Moscow, Ukraine has once again targeted the illegally annexed Crimea peninsula. This is reported by German news website

On Tuesday morning, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated in a Telegram message that the “Kiev regime” had attempted to carry out “terrorist attacks.” However, they reported that a total of nine drones were destroyed over the Black Sea, with eight others intercepted over the Crimea region.

The appointed governor of the port city of Sevastopol by Moscow, Mikhail Rasvoschaev, wrote on Telegram that five drones were shot down over the Black Sea near Sevastopol. Debris hit a private house, injuring one person, but there were no significant damages reported.

Since 2014, Russia has been involved in an armed conflict with Ukraine.
