UK remotely piloted naval attack drones struck Russian ships

BUCHAREST ($1=4.94 Romaina Leus) — Remotely piloted British naval drones have struck two Russian ships. This is what the Romanian military expert Mr. Valentin Vasilescu said. The Russian vessels are the 11356R-class missile frigate Admiral Makarov, which was damaged, and the minesweeper Ivan Golubets, which was escorting grain exports.

“It now appears that this attack on the Russian naval base at Sevastopol was carried out not only with the help of NATO electronic air support but also with British naval attack drones, very likely remotely piloted by specialists of his majesty the king of the insidious Albion,” says Vasilescu. “It is certain that NATO is the main actor in the attacks here, as well as in the one against the cruiser Moscow on April 13, which should have caused its sinking,” concludes the Romanian expert.

Mr. Vasilescu says the naval drones that hit their targets were not Ukrainian weapons, like the Neptune anti-ship missiles that hit Moscow in April, but “high-tech” drones from the Royal Navy.

A priori, the type of drone used is an “ultra” advanced drone model of British design and for which it is highly unlikely that the mastered service will be provided by Ukrainian operators, but by NATO specialists.

Mr. Vasilescu even says that the base from which the attack was carried out is known. Not far from the Crimea is the Ochakov base [at the mouth of the Southern Bug west of Kherson], which houses the “73rd Marine Special Operations Center”, which before February was made up of about 300 members of the SBS and the British SAS, officially “instructors”. This unofficial NATO base was opened in 2017. “I highly doubt that all the SBS left in February,” says Vasilescu.

In response to this new attack on Sevastopol, Russia decided to suspend its participation in the “grain agreement” and turn to the UN for this attack and the one against Nord Stream I and II in the Baltic Sea, which according to Vasilescu “undoubtedly bear the signature of NATO.”
