Razvozhaev: The headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol was attacked by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, there are wounded

The headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol was attacked, according to preliminary information, using a drone. This was announced by the "governor" of the city Mikhail Razvozhaev. According to him, the attack was carried out by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Early this morning, the Ukronazis decided to ruin Navy Day for us. An unidentified object flew into the courtyard of the fleet headquarters, according to preliminary data, it is a drone. Five people were injured, they are employees of the fleet headquarters, there are no dead, ”wrote Razvozhaev.

Later, the press service of the fleet reported that “a low-power explosive device installed on a makeshift drone” had detonated on the territory of the headquarters, and assistance had already been provided to those injured from broken glass fragments.

The headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet is located in Sevastopol in the very center of the city on Voronin Street. Within walking distance from it are: the building of the city government, legislative assembly, the FSB, the prosecutor's office, three courts, the House of Officers, the House of Moscow, the main tourist sites and St. Vladimir's Cathedral, in which 14 admirals, key naval commanders for Sevastopol, are buried.

According to Razvozhaev, it was here that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were able to send a drone with an explosive device and launch an attack.

On July 30, it was reported that in Sevastopol, Navy Day would be celebrated in an abbreviated format - protocol celebrations without the parade formation of ships and the traditional performance:

“Most of the events this year are held at the Grafskaya pier. This is a solemn meeting of the commander, who will take part in the bypass of the ships, and the assignment of the name of Andrey Paliy to the boat. At the same time, there will be no parade formation of ships, all events on Grafskaya will be of a protocol nature. We invite the people of Sevastopol to the festive fireworks in the evening.”

In past years, the cruiser Moskva, which was destroyed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on April 14, was an invariable participant in the parade.
