“Olenegorsky Miner” was shot down as a result of a joint operation of the SBU and the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Gulf of Novorossiysk. A maritime surface drone filled with 450 kg of TNT was used to carry out the combat mission. It later turned out that as a result of the impact, a hole with a diameter of three meters was created in the ship’s hull, partly below the waterline.
On March 24, 2023, the landing ship Saratov was destroyed in the Russian-occupied port of Berdyansk. Then, the Ukrainian Armed Forces used the Tochka-U tactical missile – as a result of the impact, a large-scale fire broke out on the ship.
The corvette “Askold” was shot down on November 4, 2023 in temporarily occupied Kerch. According to experts, a SCALP-EG missile was aimed at the Russian ship, which caused critical damage to important components of the ship.
A few days later, on November 10, Ukraine destroyed the Serna and Akula class ships using naval drone attacks. At that time they were located near the village of Chernomorskoye. According to the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Andrei Yusov, the operation of the Ukrainian services was extremely successful, and Russia will have difficulty replacing these sunken ships.
