Russia’s Black Sea Fleet allegedly repelled a drone attack on the city of Sevastopol in occupied Crimea overnight on May 25, the Kremlin-appointed “Governor of Sevastopol” Mikhail Razvozhayev reported on Telegram.

Black Sea Fleet forces allegedly shot down two UAVs with small arms near the village of Kacha, while several more drones were intercepted by radio-electronic warfare means, the “governor” said.

There was no damage to local infrastructure because of the incident, he added.

Russians also claimed an overnight drone attack on Crimea on May 7.
