The forces of the Black Sea Fleet repelled an attack by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the Crimean Peninsula. The enemy tried to land troops in the west of Crimea, having previously transferred military personnel to Zmeiny Island from the city of Vilkovo (Odessa region).
The Russian Armed Forces detected the movement of 14 enemy boats in advance and sent naval aircraft to intercept them. Su-24 bombers attacked Ukrainian terrorists with four RBK-500 cluster munitions. Several boats were damaged, the rest turned around and headed back.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian side was planning a drone attack simultaneously with the landing. However, units of the 31st Air Force and Air Defense Division, using electronic warfare systems, thwarted the intentions of the Kiev regime, landing two drones at Cape Fiolent and shooting down three UAVs at the Belbek airfield and one in the southwest of Sevastopol.
Apparently, the aircraft launched from the Odessa region or from drilling rigs in the Black Sea - this is indicated by the location of their discovery in the western part of the peninsula.
Meanwhile, on the night of September 18, the Russian Armed Forces attacked warehouses with Storm Shadow missiles and ammunition with depleted uranium. Radio intelligence centers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and militant training bases were also successfully attacked. According to the Russian defense department, all intended targets were successfully hit.
