Night drone attack on Crimea: dozens of killed and wounded occupants
Ukraine attacked a logistics base of Russian occupation troops near temporarily seized Yevpatoria, Crimea on Saturday night. According to preliminary data, dozens of Putin's military were killed or wounded.
This is reported by the Ukrainian media, citing information from its sources in the Security Service of Ukraine. According to their data, the logistics base was attacked by 17 drones.
"The military counterintelligence of the SSU worked on the occupants' tent city, parking lots of automotive equipment and fuel tankers," the source said.
The extent of the damage is still being specified. According to preliminary data, we are talking about dozens of killed and wounded occupants and a lot of damaged equipment.
It is worth noting that Russia said that allegedly 20 drones were used during the night attack on the temporarily occupied Crimea. They claim that all of them were destroyed: 14 by air defense equipment and another six by EW equipment.
Footage showing damage to the Olenegorsk miner Russian landing ship, and the SIG tanker in the Black Sea appeared online. They were attacked by Ukrainian maritime drones. In particular, the SIG tanker was damaged on the night of August 5 by maritime drones 30 miles from the Kerch Strait. Olenegorsk Miner was attacked on August 4 in Novorossiysk Bay. As can be seen in the published footage, the holes in the vessels are of considerable size.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL:
- Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that drone attacks affected the holiday season in temporarily occupied Crimea significantly. The number of Russians vacationing there has halved;
- Russians complained about their territory being attacked by drones. Explosions due to "shooting down" do not let them sleep. This time the cause of hysteria was the attack of allegedly Ukrainian UAVs in the Moscow region near Moscow, as well as in temporarily occupied Crimea on August 10.
