Explosions in Sevastopol caused by marine drone attack, Russia claims
The Russian puppet administrator of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, claimed that the Russian fleet had allegedly "repelled the attack of autonomous surface vehicles." Three targets that were trying to get into the bay were eliminated with gunfire, according to him. Air defenses were also active, though the Russian puppet claims that no warships were damaged in the attack.
Windows in a building nearby were shattered due to "explosions of destroyed naval drones," he added.
Radio broadcasting in Crimea also seems to have been disturbed by the attack, with radio stations broadcasting warning about a future "attack on the Crimean bridge" and "evacuation from the peninsula.”
Russian authorities have claimed that these messages are false, and that one or more radio stations had been hacked or intercepted.
"There is information about evacuation from the peninsula by ferry and other nonsense. Obviously, it's a lie," Razvozhayev lied.
Oleg Kryuchkov, an advisor Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Russia’s occupation authority in Crimea, confirmed that "several radio stations have been disrupted" in Crimea.

"Transmitters are being disconnected and the hacking is being eliminated," he alleged.
The incident in Sevastopol occurred a day and a half after a drone attack on a rail hub in Dzankoi, the main railway junction in Russian-occupied Crimea, heavily used by the Russian military. According to the Ukrainian military’s Operational Command South, the rail hub has been rendered non-operational by the attack.
