Ukraine's military claims attack on Russian air defence system in annexed Crimea

Ukraine's military claimed Thursday it destroyed a Russian air defence system in an overnight drone and missile attack near the town of Yevpatoriya in annexed Crimea.

The attack was supposedly a joint operation between the Security Service of Ukraine and the navy. A similar claim was made by Ukrainian media 'Ukrainska Pravda'.

According to reports, the first drones blinded the air defence system by attacking its radar and antenna and then two Ukrainian-made Neptune cruise missiles were fired at the system's launchers.

According to a 2018 map released by the US think tank the Atlantic Council, there was a 'Triumf' air defence system stationed near Yevpatoria.
