The conflict between Ukraine and Russia has intensified in recent months, reaching new frontiers with the deployment of sea drone attacks.

In a significant development, Ukraine has been launching sea drone strikes on Russian Black Sea Fleet vessels, prompting Russia to announce its forthcoming deployment of naval drone boats by the year’s end.

Mikhail Danilenko, the Managing Director of KMZ Holding (Kingisepp Machine-Building Plant), revealed in an interview with RIA Novosti that the Russian Ministry of Defense (RuMoD) is set to receive the first Russian marine drones by the year’s end.

“The Ministry of Defense has already agreed on the delivery of the first ten units, which we must send by the end of this year. This will be the first experimental batch that will be tested in the Northern Military District zone,” Danilenko explained.
