Ukrainian attack on Sevastopol shipyard, 24 people injured

Russian authorities announced that a Ukrainian missile attack on a shipyard in Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula, which Moscow annexed, resulted in damage to two boats undergoing repair and the injury of 24 others.

“Tonight, the Ukrainian armed forces launched a strike using ten cruise missiles” on the Sevastopol shipyard, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Telegram on Wednesday.

The ministry added that “two ships under repair were damaged” after being subjected to missile strikes, while air defenses shot down seven cruise missiles, according to the same source.

Earlier on Wednesday, Russian Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvogayev noted on Telegram that a fire had broken out at the targeted shipyard and that related services were working.

Razvoyev added: “As a result of the attack, according to preliminary information, 24 people were injured.”

The Russian Defense Ministry stated that three navy drones also attempted to attack a detachment of boats belonging to the Russian Black Sea Fleet, before being destroyed by a Russian patrol boat.

Sevastopol is the main port of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.

Crimea has been regularly subjected to air and sea drone attacks since the launch of the attack on Ukraine in February 2022.

On August 25, Moscow, for example, claimed to have shot down 42 Ukrainian drones in Crimea, and described a large-scale offensive against the annexed peninsula, where Kiev had said the previous day it had succeeded in a rare commando operation.
