Servicemen of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine showed footage of the destruction of a Russian tugboat on the night of June 6. The operation was conducted in the waters of Lake Panske on the coast of the temporarily occupied Crimea.

A special unit of the 9th Department of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine attacked the Project 498 tugboat Saturn, or Proteus, with surface drones. This was reported by the press service of the intelligence agency.

Intelligence officials joked that Saturn would no longer sail – another vessel of the Russian invaders was destroyed.

"The devastating fire damage was inflicted after a successful breakthrough of the occupiers' line of defensive barriers in the Black Sea," the DIU said.

According to the footage, at least two Ukrainian naval drones crashed into the enemy target.
