A Russian warship has repelled an attack by six Ukrainian naval drones in the southeastern part of the Black Sea as it patrolled the TurkStream and Blue Stream gas pipelines in the early hours on Sunday, Russia’s Defense Ministry has said.

The incident involving the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s Priazovye intelligence-collection ship happened at 1:30am Moscow time (10:30pm GMT), the ministry said in a statement.

All six “naval unmanned speedboats,” which the Ukrainian military used to target the vessel, were destroyed by the Priazovye’s weapons, it added.

There were no casualties. The ship didn’t suffer any damage,” the statement continued, noting that the Russian vessel had continued with its mission.

According to the ministry, a US Air Force RQ-4B Global Hawk strategic reconnaissance UAV was conducting surveillance in the central part of the Black Sea at the time of the failed attack.
