On the morning of October 29th, the city of Sevastopol in Crimea was subjected to a major attack by enemy drones. This was the largest attack by a swarm of drones on a Russian city since the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine.
In total 9 UAVs and 7 British unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) targeted the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels. The operation was coordinated by the US-made RQ-4B Global Hawk reconnaissance UAV, which has been circling over the neutral waters over the Black Sea near Crimea for several hours.
The warships of the Black Sea Fleet and air defense systems in Sevastopol managed to destroy all the of the targets.
According to local reports, the hull of the minesweeper Ivan Golubets was pierced, but the ship stayed afloat; and the frigate Admiral Makarov received some minor shrapnel damage to its hull and its radar system was disabled.
The ships of the Black Sea Fleet that were subjected to the attack are involved in ensuring the security of the “grain corridor” within the international initiative for the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports.
Specialists of the Russian Ministry of Defense picked up the wreckage of marine drones and conducted an examination. The analysis of the navigation modules allowed for the establishing that the USVs were heading from Odessa through the “grain corridor” towards the coast of Crimea. The track of one of them began from the security zone of the “grain corridor”, which may indicate that it was launched from a civilian cargo ship.
As a result of the military provocation, Russia suspended its participation in the “grain deal”. The Russian Navy is likely to resume military operations and once again block Ukrainian shipping in the Black Sea.
A few hours after the attack, Russia identified the culprits. British specialists located in Ochakov in the Mykolaiv region coordinated the preparation of the attack and trained Ukrainian servicemen of the 73rd Special Center for Naval Operations.
On October 30, the Ukrainian training center in Ochakov, where the attack on Sevastopol was coordinated from, was hit by Russian missiles. The Ukrainian Emergency Services reported two fires in in the town after Russian missile strike, but as usual it was silent about damage to its military facilities. According to various sources, warehouses, headquarters buildings and barracks with personnel were destroyed.
Attacks by Russian missiles and drones on military and energy infrastructure facilities continue. On the morning of October 31, the Ukrainian authorities confirmed damage to energy infrastructure facilities in the Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Cherkasy, Kharkiv and Zaporozhye regions. Part of the railway lines in Ukraine remain without power. There are also the largest losses of energy supply throughout the country since the beginning of the Russian military operation.
Revenge is a dish better served cold!
absolutely, Russia is retaliating and each time harder. Ukraine is now at less than 50 percent of its energy capacity. 80 percent of Kiev is without water. This is all NATO’s fault. Using the Ukrainians as cannon fodder, using the nation of Ukraine to launch an attack against Russia. Russia never wanted to do any of this, they pleaded with Ukraine to negotiate. The longer this conflict lasts, the more devastating the consequences for NATO and specially western Europe. Putin easily outsmarted the entire west.
It’s the Ukrainians fault also. They support Zelensky.
Its very difficult for me to pass harsh judgement on the Ukrainian people overall. Remember Zelenskey has absolute control of media and information in Ukraine and hes pumping out misinformation 24/7 around the clock. Overall Ukrainians are good people, their country has been taken over by satanic foreigners 8 years ago. The people of Ukraine have tremendous potential which I believe will come into fruition once they are liberated and once they are free of this constant Russophobia brainwashing.
Ukraine is an artificial construction. DPR,LPR and eastern Russian culture part, Polish- Galacian NAZI influenced north western part, Middle which maybe wants to be left alone, Southern, Odessa, probably Russian leaning. If this pup was divided along rational lines and the Kiev part had not insisted on attacking the Eastern part for 8 years, this war would not have happened. The DPR commander (Motorala. Arsel Povlov) was a personal friend of PUTIN and when he was killed Putin became more and more convinced he was fighting NATO and the entire west not just KIEV. Then just before the war, the aborted color revolution in Belarus and Putin knew war was inevitable. NED and CIA , the little scamps, would not stop at Ukraine. What is the sense of talking about Ukraine in a unified fashion in light of this mongrel soup hound of a artificial country. Putin was initially deceived by misinformed and corrupt intelligence which told him he could move into Kiev and decapitate the beast with a measly 20,000 soldiers, and that was not the case. Now he is in full tilt war with the West, not undercover at all, with 30,000 or more (probably a lot more) troops about to drop the hammer in the next few weeks.
Dude, it’s been going on at least 80 years, not 8.
EN DEMOCRACIA HAY QUE SABER VOTAR MUCHA GENTE VOTA A LA GENTE EQUIVOCADA EN UCRANIA Y EN MUCHAS OTRAS NACIONES DEL MUNDO POR CULPA DE LOS PERIODISTAS CORRUPTOS QUE LES LAVAN EL CEREBRO
BEST served cold, like okroshka.
La venganza Rusa debe ser rápida y precisa, además de atacar los centros de mando y control de las Fuerzas Armadas de Ucrania aniquilando a los especialistas y asesores de la OTAN en territorio Ucraniano, además de infringir los daños más importantes a la Infraestructura crítica, centrales eléctricas, plantas potabilizadoras de agua, silos de granos provocando la escasez de alimentos a la población civil y mermando su capacidad de lucha. También Rusia debería realizar el ataque más grande en esta operación especial en territorio Ucraniano, utilizando además de misiles de crucero y drones kamikazes, sería bueno que utilice la bomba termobarica más grande construida por el hombre el llamado el padre de todas las bombas FOAB contra concentraciones de tropas Ucranianas causando pánico y estupor entre sus tropas al ser utilizada la bomba convencional no nuclear más grande y poderosa utilizada por primera vez en un conflicto.
Russia closes Black Sea ‘grain corridor’
The Russian military closed the so-called “grain corridor” used to ship Ukrainian agriculture products through the Black Sea on Monday. The move was provoked by the actions of Ukraine, which used the route to launch attacks on Russia, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
Can’t somebody just finally jam the Brits into a can of spam and float it out to sea, never to be seen again?
You might start wirh a swimming west Yourself.
I’m in the US. Are you issuing a threat to the US?
Besides, wouldn’t you agree that the Brits are a particularly smelly variety of terrorist? They probably taught bin Laden all his tricks and BTW: if I swam west, I’d end up in China.
Rusia debería atacar con misiles de crucero y drones Kamikazes, además de utilizar por primera vez en esta operación especial en territorio Ucraniano la bomba termobarica más grande construida por el hombre la conocida como el padre de todas las bombas la FOAB contra las concentraciones de tropas Ucranianas causando pánico y estupor entre las tropas Ucranianas y sus patrocinadores Occidentales, al ser utilizada la bomba convencional más grande no nuclear jamás construida.
What do you smoke pal? makes you fly high and crazy
Someone please explain how targeting civilian infrastructure addresses Russia’s vulnerability to NATO weaponry.
Why did the US/NATO destroy the civilian infrastructure of Iraq, Afghanistan, or any country they invaded first?
Fun fact for you buddy, Russia wasn’t planning of attacking Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure, and they didn’t attack Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure for months. But as Ukraine start using terrorist tactics and NATO sent more weapons to Ukraine, Russia change its plan.
Also, why has Ukraine been attacking civilian infrastructure for the past 8 years in DPR and LPR? Or why are they attacking civilian areas for the past 8 years, and now with the help of NATO?
US war crimes cease to be evil when Russia emulates them. This board is a bastion of intellectual honesty.
Russia is not emulating the US. Have you heard of one wedding party blown to bits yet by a missile? Americans would target a whole crowd just to get one “terrorist”.
Total rubbish. If the Russians covered the entirety of the failed Ukrainian CIA project in Sarin gas tomorrow, it would have no relation whatsoever to the utter criminality of US actions in Korea, Vietnam, Latin America, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, etcetera ad infinitum. Dipshit.
Thats right. Your comment has no relation to this at all.
So, overthrowing a democratically elected president and replacing him with nasty neonazis that properly toady up to Washington has no relation to past behavior? Far as I can tell, it goes all the way back to 1953 and the almost exact installation of the puppet Shah and his very neo-nazi Savak secret police.
What have I missed?.Do tell.
The NATO WEST and UKRAINE know better.Russian only purnishes you through the corridor you used.If you used CIVILIAN they use the same way.You come millitarily they use the same corridor.Zekensky being a purpet who gets orders from the west +NATO can’t think on his own he only executes the mission of the WEST.
We do help the publi elected parlament having no nazis in it and very much Zelinsky.
That’s right. Keep them out of sight in the Rada and hide them in the SBU, their nazi-militia army and the police, then have them give the Rada and the US Congress their marching orders.
Zelensky’s just a nazi stooge. Haven’t you figured that out yet? He’s also a US stooge, so unless the US and the nazis are coordinating game plans with each other, Zelensky’ll eventually go totally gaga, psychologically drawn and quartered.
So, watch him carefully and you’ll see if it’s one or the other.
The little beggar’s beginning to annoy me. I think maybe the nazis can have him.
But Joe, weren’t you a beggar in your heyday too? You have no soul, Joe.
The question remains how to make the British pay a price? They are already paying a price economically, however, if Russia does not respond then these attacks will continue. It is time for something to blow up in the UK.
You have no patience? They’re blowing themselves up day by day. Wait ’til Scotland gives them the boot. That’ll be their coup de grace.
Russia just closed the grain corridor. I swear this Ukraine/NATO/UK regime of low IQ retards keep getting dumber and dumber by the minute. Not only is 80 percent of Kiev without water today because Russia had to retaliate due to the imbecilic drone terrorist attack on Russian ships, but now the corridor is completely closed down so the citizens of Ukraine and the UK will suffer the biggest blow of all since most of the grain Ukraine was shipping was going to the UK and other western European countries. Ukraine will lose billions in revenue from the halting of grain exports. Its another suicidal self inflicted wound by the defeated NATO regime whose leaders could care less about their citizens. The UN today stated that the grain corridor must continue to flow haha Russia said Get the F@3K out of here so they literally just closed down the entire corridor. It was bound to happen, a reckless terrorist atrtack by the Ukroscumbag government using the corridor to launch another failed, embarrassingly low IQ, primitive attack masterminded by the UK special forces who along with the humiliating attempt to recapture snake island yet again embarrass themselves on the world stage. NATO is a weak paper tiger of drug infested, gender confused LGBTQ whining little bitches. Russia is unstoppable at this point. The Ukrainian citizens will soon be free from the yoke of tyranny that has overtaken them since 2014.
the regimes get paid the people get f*#ked. thats the point US grain is now worth more. interesting that bill gates bought some much farmland fairly recently
absolutely agreed, this is war profiteering and the swindling of the tax revenue of Americans and Europeans. Like always. Either way this time Russia has dealt a lethal blow to the empire. The beginning of the end is near.
Lethal blow or not – the emperor finally stands naked before all.
From a broader view, perhaps closing the grain corridor and destroying the west was the point of the whole operation. The real enemy of those controlling Ukraine seem to be all the citizens of the world, especially the western world.
After this betrayal by NATO and Ukraine to use the grain corridor to launch an attack on Russian ships its now painfully obvious that very very soon Odessa will return to its rightful and historic owner, mother Russia.
What kind of war is this, with all the Ukrainean infrastructure almost intact?
Obviously not one that would have been fought by the Americans.
Mines. Mine everything. If anything floats, sink them to the bottom of the sea. Now watch as the UN starts whining about the grain deal, together with the US and UK. Cue the violins as they complain about the poor helpless African nations that will starve without these shipments of grain. Shipments that almost exclusively to Europe in order to keep the prices of essential goods, food, under control when inflation is already double digits.
Better arrest the enemy ships and take the merchendise as war reparations.
Niggers in Africa are living on the most fertile land in the World.
Niggers in Africa have the best weather in the World for vegetation.
If niggers cannot feed themselves – they can only blame the niggers.
And Sahara too hidden by stealth.
Africa has 1.216 billion inhabitants.
It’s a jungle over there.Keep them out of our garden.
Im more in the middle in that. I want a better controlled devellopment, where its easier to say no and go.
Total blocade against Ukraine!
Liberate Odessa and take back the coast line!
Ukraine is a small county in the middle of that mass of stolen lands, not even Kiev is Ukrainian but Russian by history, so Ukraine must be reduce to what it was and nothing more!
Russia should wake up and terminate this madness quick.
Z all the to Transnistria!
muscovites lash out in confused stupor as the West finalizes its subjugation of russian resources
My advice to the Russians …………….just keep making missiles and expand production facilities. These missile attacks are very effective. Who will support Zelensky when they’re stuck in the dark freezing?
After 10 downvotes, Southfront deleted this question: “How exactly does expending missiles on civilian infrastructure prevent another highly successful NATO-led Ukro counteroffensive?”
There’s an SF delete nonsense filter that probably kicked in at your ‘highly successful”.
Mine certainly did.
To explicitly identity the UK Special Forces as perpetrators of the attack, and by extension, the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines and the Crimea bridge, takes the conflict into a much more serious level. After the sinking of the Moskva, Russia said nothing out loud but I don’t think it was a coincidence that the spanking new Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier lasted only a day and a half after being launched, before some sudden technical issues has sent it back into dry dock for the foreseeable future. By naming the UK as basically an enemy combatant, by making public the contacts between Truss and Blinken following the Nordstream sabotage, and showing the world how deeply compromised the communications between the top officials in the US, the UK, and probably NATO and the EU, have become, Russia has raised the stakes considerably. I don’t think anyone believes the attack on the military base at Ochakov will be sufficient retaliation and retribution for Moscow. A direct attack on a British asset will probably happen. Will the NATO alliance then hold? Europe is up shit creek anyway, but the US still has plausible denialibility, they can tell London, you made the first move and we knew nothing about it. Article 5 is about a NATO state being attacked, not one that invites retaliation. This is your mess, sort it out yourself. Either way, Europe is fucked.
USA-NATO are ready and waiting…bring it on!
So they’ve been practicing evacuation by helicopter from embassy roofs to keep their proficiency sharp?
LOL- waiting for what? What’s it gonna get it on with? Five S-500’s would take out the entire NATO air force within two hours and they know it, or they’d already be in the skies. Russia ain’t Yugoslavia, sparky.
In ’99, while bombing civilian targets, their brave pilots had to stay at 20,000 ft. to keep away from ancient SA-7’s. Today, they’d have to keep a 20,000 mile ceiling.
You ant us to die laughing or what – BIIG SMILE.
Who’s us? Danes? All they’re good for is making danish pastries and hanging out the rainbow wash.. All their Viking warriors left for Russia and left the servants behind a thousand years ago, where they proceeded to neuter themselves gene by gene into a nondescript primordial jello, trembling at every foreign footstep..
Os russos que aqui, comemoram cada míssil que cai na Ucrânia, matando bebês, crianças, grávidas, velhos, civis inocentes. Em breve vai ser chamado por Putin pra lutar na guerra. Tem que lutar até a morte, não pode voltar pra Rússia vivo. O exército russo está sendo destruído na Ucrânia.
Spoken Portugues sounds a bit like Russian from a distance.
Spoken Ukrainian sounds more like a German burping.
Why you no speaka Swahili?
Writing might be better.
No, your written and spoken English are equally atrocious.
Keep on strikes!
Kremlin: “We apologize to our dear partners”.
Westerners are cowards. Cowards. The world now sees how desperate cowards fight. Cowards. Cowards Yellow bellied white feather cowards. Lol
They lie and cheat on agreements a lot too.
You are so lied for. The last one is google has to remove 2 sections about Ukraine even they are quite sober and correct.
That was absolutely and irrevocably on display. The West, US, UK, EU have no credibility whatsoever. They’re unreliable partners that might betray you at any moment without flinching an eyelash. And this is why the world is being fragmented now.
Cowards are the ones only able to make total destruction by 100s of missiles as infantile revenge. .
Yellow Card cowards
Correction to this article: Russia has always maintained that it never blockaded any shipping lanes.
Recall that Ukraine blockaded itself when it mined it’s own shipping lanes probably because they believed Russia would take Odessa. After the grain deal was reached Ukraine (with the help of Turkiye I think it was) demined it’s territory.
Stupid hohli used ancient floating mines and didn’t bother to tether them, much like they lay land mines, don’t bother to map them and then run over them themselves..
Hohli aren’t THAT stupid. If they mapped them, then front line troops would just sell the maps to the Russians for a bottle of vodka and a few fentanyl pills.
ENTONCES EL ATAQUE TERRORISTA DE LOS INGLESES CONTRA LOS BARCOS RUSOS FRAACASO POR COMPLETO !!!!
not revenge ,just justice
A navy ship anchored at Sevastopol is a valid military target. Don’t give me that Russia is treated unjustly shit.
Os russos que comemorar cada míssil que é lançado na Ucrânia para matar crianças, bebês, grávidas, velhos, e civis inocentes. O sangue desses inocentes derramado, clama por justiça, vai cai na cabeça desses russos. Eles vão ser chamado por Putin pra lutar na Ucrânia, vão pra o front, e tem que lutar a até a morte pela Rússia.
Long overdue for Russia to use their more powerful bombs and cruise missiles to annihilate and destroy everywhere and anywhere in Ukraine that British/US/NATO forces are situated.
