Earlier, a video appeared on the network with the defeat of the bridge piers, as stated, in Zatoka, Odessa region, by sea surface drones.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valery Zaluzhny, in a conversation with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Mark Milley, indirectly confirmed the use of sea drones by Russian invaders.

Zaluzhny's message states that the general "shared his concern about Russia's use of maritime surface drones, which poses a threat to civilian shipping in the Black Sea."

Previously, the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not report that Russia was using maritime drones. Zaluzhny did not specify how long this has been happening or how many times the RF Armed Forces have used such devices.

The day before, a video appeared on the network with the defeat of the bridge piers, as claimed, in Zatoka, Odessa region, by sea surface drones during a massive attack by the Russian Federation on February 10.

The bridge itself has repeatedly become the target of the rockets of the invaders. However, the General Staff did not comment on this. The speaker of the Odesa Military Administration, Serhiy Bratchuk, commenting on the widespread video, stated that he could not confirm the authenticity of the published footage.

The Russians announced their alleged intention to launch the production of marine drones in Crimea after the attack of surface drones of their ships in Sevastopol Bay.
