Russia’s Black Sea Fleet reportedly repelled a drone attack on Sevastopol, the Kremlin-appointed “governor of Sevastopol” Mykhailo Razvozhaiev wrote on Telegram on the night of April 24.

“Our fleet is currently repelling an attack by surface drones in the outer zone. All city services are on standby. We remain calm,” he wrote.

Russian anti-submarine defense forces shot down one drone, while another allegedly exploded on its own, he said, claiming that the drones were neutralized in the outer zone, and therefore no objects in Sevastopol were damaged.

Surface drones are difficult to shoot down, said Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat, noting that it wasn’t the first use of such weapons.

“Ordinary drones that move over the water are a rather difficult target to hit. That’s why the use of various types of UAVs in modern combat will increase.”
