Attack on Sevastopol

Last night, on September 13, explosions were heard in the occupied city of Sevastopol. Later, the Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that 10 cruise missiles had supposedly targeted the S. Ordzhonikidze Shipyard. However, the aggressor country's defense department stated that 7 of them had been intercepted.

Furthermore, Russia accuses Ukraine of allegedly attacking unmanned boats of the Black Sea Fleet.

It should be noted that a fire broke out on the territory of the Sevastopol Shipyard, which was detected by NASA satellites. The fire occurred in the South and Ship Bay of Sevastopol.

The Ukrainian General Staff confirmed that Ukraine had struck Russian military maritime targets and port infrastructure in Sevastopol but did not officially disclose the method of attack.
