The statement read that these boats were going towards the Crimean Peninsula, which was annexed in 2014 by Moscow.
In another statement, the Russian army claimed that its air defence shot down 8 Ukrainian drones flying over Crimea and another one close to the Ukrainian border in the Bryansk region.
On the other hand, Ukraine carried out an operation on the Crimean Peninsula and even raised its national flag there on August 24, 2023.
Ukraine’s Military Intelligence reported that their special forces came from the sea route and landed on the western part of the peninsula.
