The military unit specified that “according to the results of the restoration of data from the memory of the navigation receiver, it was established that the launch of unmanned underwater vehicles was carried out from the coast near the city of Odessa.”
In this sense, the ministry pointed out that the conclusion was made after examining the Canadian navigation module in the drones used by Ukraine for the attack in coordination with the United Kingdom.
From this, the Russian portfolio explained that “the movement coordinates of one of the maritime drones indicate a launch point in the seawater of the security zone of the grain corridor in the Black Sea.”
Similarly, the Russian Armed Forces reported that, according to experts, this indicates that the invasion was carried out by “one of the civilian ships chartered by Kyiv or its Western sponsors to export agricultural products from Ukrainian ports”.
This Saturday, the Kremlin described the Ukrainian attack with aerial drones and seven sea drones as a “terrorist attack” that was quelled by Russian security forces.
In response, Moscow announced an indefinite suspension of the Grain Agreement, citing the difficulty in maintaining the safety of the cargo ships involved.
