Experts estimated the power of the drone that hit the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet

Such a drone could not fly from far away

This means that the explosive device was launched from somewhere nearby. Recently, the FSB reported on several cases of detention in Crimea of ​​persons recruited by the Ukrainian security service. Obviously, the work of the FSB in this direction will be continued.

Military expert Alexei Leonkov also believes that we are dealing with sabotage. “The act of sabotage (not an attack) proves once again that there should be no half-hearted decisions with Ukraine,” he wrote on his Telegram channel. According to him, the current Kyiv authorities are “a source of terror against Russia and its citizens.”

War reporter Alexander Sladkov agrees with him. “You have to get used to it. Wait anytime, anywhere. As long as at least a meter of Ukrainian land remains under the control of the West, we will be under the threat of any attack,” he wrote on the Telegram channel.

Earlier it became known that a low-power explosive device installed on a homemade drone exploded on the territory of the headquarters Black Sea Fleet. Several people were injured by glass fragments, and they received help.

According to experts, Russian air defense is capable of fighting small low-flying vehicles. This was proved by the work of the same Pantsir complexes in Syria and during a special operation in Ukraine. But it is not always advisable to use guided missiles on small vehicles. It's like hitting sparrows with a cannon. Sometimes it is more expedient to use means of electronic warfare.

According to media reports, in Sevastopol, investigative actions are being carried out at the site of the attack by the FSB and relevant services.
