Video screenshot has a video that allegedly captured the destruction of one of the Ukrainian surface unmanned boats. The video was published today by Russia’s ZvezdaNews.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation confirmed the news. According to a press release from the ministry, “on the morning of May 24, the Ukrainian armed forces unsuccessfully attacked the reconnaissance ship “Ivan Hurs” of the Black Sea Fleet with three unmanned boats. All unmanned boats, as reported by the ministry, were destroyed 140 km northeast of the Bosphorus.”

The ship, according to the military department, is performing tasks to ensure the safety of the Turkish Stream and Blue Stream gas pipelines in Turkey’s economic zone. The ship, the ministry notes, continues to fulfill its assigned tasks. It follows from the announcement of the department that the protection of the gas pipelines by the Russian armed forces has been strengthened after the explosions in “Nord Stream” and the failed “Nord Stream 2”.

New loitering torpedo

Information about a new Ukrainian torpedo appeared on the web. It was developed by the Ukrainian group Brave-1 – a specialized team for the development of weapons, based on the circumstances and nature of the war in Ukraine.

The new torpedo is more of a loitering munition type, writes submarine expert H I Sutton. The torpedo is called the Toloka. Sutton wrote on his blog that Toloca could prove to be a torpedo with comparative flexibility. He explains that Toloka’s flexibility will be due to “thrusters that are mounted at the end of each horizontal stabilizer.” These thrusters are used for both propulsion and steering.

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 21 February 2022, Russia claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility. Russia claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers. They tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.

On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR. According to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole. Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.

On 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country, as well as tanks entering via the Belarus border.

Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, a “special military operation” can only take place after a UN resolution. There is no such resolution. So this is an invasion and war against Ukraine.
