Ukraine-Russia war – live: Kyiv drone attack wipes out $1.2bn air defence system in Crimea

A sophisticated Russian air defence system has been destroyed by Ukraine in an attack on the occupied Crimea region, security sources say.

Ukraine’s security service (SBU) and navy carried out the attack on a Russian facility near Yevpatoriya using cruise missiles and drones, a Ukrainian intelligence source said.

“The drones focused on the air defence systems and their radars, the source said. “After disabling the radar stations, the navy units hit the S300 and S400 ‘Triumph’ systems, that is worth $1.2bn, by two Neptune cruise missiles,” the source said.

Earlier, Ukraine targeted a Russian navy ship in the Black Sea using a barrage of sea drones, according to Russia. Another 11 drones were shot down by Russian air defences over Crimea, Moscow said.

Yesterday Ukraine launched its largest attack on the Crimean port city of Sevastopol since the start of the war. The attack damaged a submarine and a large landing ship. Security sources said British Shadow Cruise missiles were used in the operation.
