This night, after our kamikaze drones raided Ukrainian territories, the Ukrainian Armed Forces responded by attempting to attack the Crimean peninsula with Mugin-5 PRO drones stuffed with explosives.
The UAV launch area is unknown. Given past attacks, it is highly likely that this was the Odessa region. A total of 15 drones were launched towards the northwestern part of Crimea.
Two Mugin-5s were shot down by crews of the 31st Air Force and Air Defense Division in the vicinity of Razdolnoye, and another 13 were suppressed by electronic warfare equipment on approach to the village. In recent days, satellites have been monitoring the Razdolnoye area, so the attempted strike was expected.
At the same time, the drone raid was carried out for the second night in a row – yesterday, also over the Crimea, the forces of 31 divisions shot down and suppressed six drones. Only this time the target was Russian Armed Forces facilities in the Krasnoperekopsky and Pervomaisky districts.
❗️The air defense crews easily fought back. However, it is worth remembering that such raids without a clearly defined goal are carried out for a reason. After attempts at massive drone strikes, as a rule, there are attacks with other types of weapons.
Cheap commercial drones are entrusted with the task of opening the air defense system, and only after that the missile systems are used. Moreover, now the Ukrainian Armed Forces have ATACMS with a range of up to 300 km, which increases the damage radius, including in Crimea.
