Unknown surface drones probably hit the ship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation “Ivan Khurs”. Military correspondent Andrii Tsaplienko showed the moment of the attack in Telegram.

It is claimed that the video shows the same “Ivan Hurs”, which, as the Russian side claimed the day before, avoided the attack of naval UAVs.

The footage clearly shows that at least one drone hit the body of a Russian scout.

UPDATED 6:31 p.m. Damage to “Ivan Khurs” was confirmed in Ukraine. “Ukrainian Pravda” with reference to an interlocutor in military circles writes that the ship was damaged as a result of an attack by Ukrainian naval drones in the Black Sea.

The attack on the Black Sea Fleet – the latest news

On May 24, a number of mass media reported on a drone attack on the reconnaissance ship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation “Ivan Khurs” 74 kilometers north of the Bosphorus Strait – and 400 kilometers from the territory controlled by Ukraine. In Russia, it was claimed that the crew managed to “repulse” the UAV, and the vessel itself was allegedly not damaged.

In response, the occupiers blocked traffic on the Crimean Bridge under the pretext of “exercises”, and urgently launched the frigate “Admiral Makarov” with 8 “Calibers” into the Black Sea.

According to expert Oleksandr Kovalenko, the Russian fleet has only one other ship of a similar project (two of them were built in just 20 years), which makes the loss of this unit in the project line painful for the Russian Federation.

Losses of the Black Sea Fleet – data

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the Armed Forces have destroyed 18 units of Russian watercraft, including warships and boats.

One of the large-scale operations on the Russian Black Sea Fleet was carried out in October 2022. Then, according to experts’ calculations, at least three ships in the Sevastopol Bay were damaged as a result of an attack by unknown marine drones. But the most expensive loss for the Russians (up to 700 million dollars) was the cruiser and flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation “Moskva”.

As the Russian “Project” wrote in December 2022, the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation lost 15% of its combat personnel in the war with Ukraine.
