BY A STAFF REPORTER: Russian forces destroyed three Ukrainian unmanned boats in the Black Sea on Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The news came after a massive missile attack on the Sevastopol shipyard in Ukraine-occupied Crimea.
The ministry claimed that air defense forces shot down seven cruise missiles and that the patrol ship Vasily Baikov destroyed all unmanned boats. However, the ministry acknowledged that two ships under repair were damaged by enemy cruise missiles. The ships will be fully repaired, the ministry said.
