Attacks in the rear

While Russia shelled civilian infrastructure all month long, at the end of the reporting period the Ukrainians managed two

hussar stunts in the form of attacks on military bases deep in the Russian rear. First

was a combined naval and aerial drone

attack on the port of Sevastopol in occupied Crimea in the early hours of Saturday

October 29.

According to an official Russian statement,

nine drones and seven remotely controlled

boats loaded with explosives attacked Sevastopol. All the flying drones were to be

shot down and the kamikaze craft lightly damaged one minesweeper. However,

several large columns of black smoke

were rising from the harbor. These were

explained by the Russian side as part of

a “planned exercise”. Ukraine has not officially claimed responsibility for the attack,

but local media reported two to four ships

were hit. Videos from the cameras of the

attacking kamikaze boats have also been

released, according to which at least two

ships were hit – in addition to the minesweeper Ivan Golubets, whose damage

was also admitted by the Russians, it was

supposed to be the frigate Admiral Makarov. The latter became the new flagship
