Ukrainian intelligence sources confirmed to Kyiv Post that two Russian landing boats were hit by unmanned sea drones last night in the harbor of the temporarily occupied town of Chornomorske in Crimea.

The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine (HUR) later on Friday morning released a video of what it said was the operation, with the caption: "As a result of a night operation on the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea, small landing ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation were damaged by soldiers."

Around 5 a.m. the local telegram channel Krymskiy Vetеr (Crimean Wind) reported explosions around Chornomorske.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that it had allegedly shot down two “aircraft-type UAVs” over the Crimean Peninsula on the night of Nov.10 though they made no mention of sea-based drones.


Later reports said that that there were five hits on the town, including one against a military barracks.

Later the same Telegram channel reported that that rescuers were clearing the rubble from under the barracks, and divers began working in the sea.

There is currently no information on casualties.
