Should we expect a weakening of air attacks on Sevastopol?

Obviously, the Ukrainian attacks on Crimea and Sevastopol will only intensify as Western arms shipments to Ukraine continue

Since the beginning of the Russian army’s military special operation in Ukraine, Ukrainian drones are continuously attacking the Crimean peninsula, including Sevastopol. Most of the attacks were successfully repelled. But over the past few months, the Kiev regime’s attacks have become more frequent.

Another Ukrainian drone near Sevastopol was shot down on January 4. They intended to strike the Belbek airfield, where Russian fighter jets and frontline bombers taking part in special operations in Ukraine are stationed. The UAVs were destroyed by Russian air defense systems.

“In the morning, air defense systems shot down two UAVs over the sea near Belbek,” Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozzhaev wrote on his Telegram channel.

He assured that all city services continue to work in normal mode.

In early 2023, attempts to attack the Sevastopol airfield had already been made. According to the head of the city Mikhail Razvozzhaev, two Ukrainian drones were shot down on January 2.

“An air defense system is active in Sevastopol. According to preliminary data, a UAV was shot down over the sea,” Razvozzhaev wrote on his social media pages.

Less than an hour later, he informed citizens that air defense systems shot down another drone over the sea.

“Our military continues to repel the attack,” the governor wrote.

He reassured residents and visitors to the city and asked everyone to remain calm.

We emphasize that on the eve of the new year, the Ukrainian armed units also tried to damage the Russian military base in Sevastopol.

On December 30, local residents heard loud pops over the city center and Streletskaya Bay. The city’s residents noticed in the sky characteristic white trails left by the air defense missiles.

Reports of loud pops immediately appeared on the city’s social networks.

Later, the head of Sevastopol wrote that the air defense system in the city repelled the attacks of the Ukrainian armed units.

Earlier, on December 8, a Black Sea Fleet ship on duty in Sevastopol shot down a UAV over the Black Sea. A similar situation occurred two days earlier, on the night of December 6, when the Black Sea Fleet forces shot down two Ukrainian drones in Sevastopol waters.

On October 29, 2022, Sevastopol was attacked by 16 Ukrainian UAVs, including seven sea drones.

The attack resulted in damage to the Ivan Golubets minesweeper and the anti-submarine net in the South Bay.

The Russian Defense Ministry called the attack an act of terrorism, which was prepared by the Ukrainian military under the guidance of British specialists.

It is obvious that the Ukrainian attacks on Crimea and Sevastopol will only intensify as the supply of Western arms to Ukraine continues. Local authorities and military personnel must be prepared for this.

The publication Voyennoye Obozreniye writes, “It is unreasonable to say that everything will be limited to two or three drones.”

Recently the Ukrainian mass media reported that the Ukrainian armed forces began to receive for service some analogs of the Russian drone Geran with a large lethal radius and warhead of 75 kg.

All of this suggests that not only the authorities and military departments, but also society should be ready for increased aggression from Ukraine.
