The Ukrainian side is aware that the Russians had to tow the Samum for repairs with a significant tilt at the stern and listing to starboard.

The SSU used an experimental model of a marine drone that can operate in a storm, hiding from detection behind high waves. The waves were 1.5-2 meters high during the special operation.

Earlier, the SSU showed off special SeaBaby surface drones. Sea Baby is the result of many months of development, which began immediately after the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

SSU Head Vasyl Maliuk called it a unique development of his agency in an interview with CNN.

"No private company was involved in this. With the help of these drones, we have recently successfully hit the Crimean bridge, the large Olenegorskiy Gornyak landing ship and the SIG tanker," he said.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL:
