Maritime drone attack on Novorossiysk

In the night of August 4, maritime drones executed an attack on the port city of Novorossiysk. The initial explosions were reported in the vicinity of South Ozeryovka, followed by a subsequent series of blasts in the Myskhako area.

While the Russian Ministry of Defense promptly claimed to have "repelled" the attack, photographic evidence of the damaged ship emerged later on.

Sources within the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) confirmed a special operation in the bay of Novorossiysk, resulting in the impairment of the amphibious ship "Olenegorsky Gornyak".
