Associated Press

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russian-appointed authorities in Crimea say the military has fended off a Ukrainian strike on a main naval base, while an exploding drone was also reportedly found in a forest near Moscow. The attacks come as Ukraine is preparing for a major counteroffensive. The Moscow-appointed head of Sevastopol in Crimea said that the military destroyed a Ukrainian sea drone that attempted to attack the harbor in the early hours on Monday. He said another drone blew up without inflicting any damage. Ukrainian authorities didn’t comment. After previous attacks on Sevastopol and other areas, Ukrainian officials stopped short of openly claiming responsibility but emphasized Kyiv’s right to strike any target in response to the Russian aggression.
