Sources in the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) told RBC-Ukraine that they together with the Ukrainian Navy attacked an enemy missile carrier Buyan, and the ship Pavel Derzhavin in Crimea, using drones with experimental weaponry.

According to the sources, today's attack on the missile carrier Buyan and the ship Pavel Derzhavin, which was undermined the day before, was the work of the Security Service in collaboration with the Ukrainian Navy.

Details are not disclosed yet, but there is information that both vessels were struck by Sea Baby drones with experimental weaponry.

One of the organizers of the special operation noted that after the first explosion, Russian minesweepers and divers still couldn't determine how the attack was carried out.

In the meantime, the Russian submarine Alrosa was lucky, as it has not been successfully targeted by a naval drone so far.

At the same time, the missile cruiser Buyan was struck today in the Sevastopol raid by the experimental weapons on Sea Babies.
