Unknown drones attacked Russian military unit in Crimea and Bryansk chemical plant: what is known
Russia has again complained about a "drone attack". In particular, in the temporarily occupied Crimea, at night and in the morning of November 22, the Russian occupiers were disturbed by both surface and aircraft.
The Russian Ministry of Defense reported on their "destruction," but later it became known that the UAVs had reached the occupiers' military unit, Crimean Wind reports. The day before, on November 21, an unknown drone crashed and exploded on the territory of the Bryansk Chemical Plant, which produces explosives.
The occupiers were restless at night and in the morning of November 22 in the temporarily occupied Crimea.
At 05:14, the Russian Defense Ministry complained that Ukraine had attempted to attack the peninsula from the sea.
"On November 22, in the western part of the Black Sea, four unmanned boats of the Ukrainian Navy were detected heading towards the Crimean peninsula. All the targets were destroyed," the Russian Defense Ministry reported in a boilerplate fashion.
At 07:29 Kyiv time, the Russian Defense Ministry reported another "repelled" drone attack, this time from the air.
"Today at about 07:30 Moscow time (06:30 Kyiv time - Ed.), an attempt by the Kyiv regime to carry out a terrorist attack by an aircraft-type UAV against targets in the Russian Federation was prevented. Three Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed over the territory of the Republic of Crimea by regular air defense systems," the so-called Russian Defense Ministry said.
At the same time, comments by Crimeans in local publics raise doubts about the "successful repulsion of the attack." Residents of Novoozerne in Donuzlav, according to Crimean Wind, discuss a loud explosion that scared them. They agree that the explosion was the result of an air raid, and some of them also rushed to "help" at the site of the hit.
According to the Krymsky Viter Telegram channel, it turned out that the "downed" drone flew to a Russian military unit in Crimea.
"At 7:05 a.m. today, a drone arrived at the berth of the Russian military unit in the Narrow Bay in Chornomorske, the same place where landing boats and personnel were destroyed last time, our source said. The consequences of the arrival are not yet known. Our source also says that the pier is now fenced off with boom barriers made of barrels tied with cables," the report said.
And the Russian edition of ASTRA said that the Bryansk Chemical Plant, which specializes in the production of explosives, was attacked once again in the Bryansk region of the Russian Federation on November 21. Yesterday morning, a drone crashed on the territory of the 50th Anniversary of the USSR Chemical Plant in the town of Seltso.
It exploded during the fall. The explosion occurred near one of the plant's workshops. The newspaper claims that "there were no casualties or damage."
The Bryansk Chemical Plant named after the 50th anniversary of the USSR is part of the Tekhmash Concern of the Rostech State Corporation. Concern Tekhmash specializes in the development and serial supply of ammunition.
The publication recalled that the previous attack on the company took place on October 13. The roof and ventilation chamber of the production facility were damaged as a result of two UAVs. The next day, another drone pierced the roof of a new workshop under construction on the plant's premises.
Earlier, the DIU fighters hit two expensive enemy radar stations. They were deployed by Russians in the Kursk region. On November 18, Ukrainian soldiers discovered the enemy's radio position and struck at it. Thus, two radars were hit - one 55Zh6 Nebo, and the other, probably Gamma-S1E.
On November 21, explosions occurred in the temporarily occupied Yevpatoriya and Saki. Local publics wrote about the possible damage to the Saki thermal power plant and that a massive fire broke out there upon arrival.
