According to information published by Военный Осведомитель on March 22, 2023, three Ukrainian Unmanned surface vessels (USV) attempted to strike the coastal bays in Sevastopol. One USV was stopped by the visual observation post on a ship in the north.

The other two were destroyed, even before reaching Sevastopol Bay, by small arms fire. At present, all unmanned vehicles have been eliminated, and the bays have been closed to ship traffic.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing a massive combined attack on Crimea in the next days using unmanned aerial and surface vehicles, as well as missile weapons.

The attack by unmanned maritime vehicles seems more like a "feel out" of the condition of the Black Sea Fleet's defenses and a search for the least protected areas near Sevastopol for the next sabotage. The video allegedly captures a burning unmanned surface vessel stuck on the booms at the entrance to the harbor.
