Daily Mail: Dramatic moment Russian drone boat packed with explosives smashes key Ukrainian bridge as Putin unleashes new war weapon that Moscow hopes will turn tide of war
* The unmanned object is seen in the water approaching the bridge at-speed
* Some reports say it was underwater, while others say it was a surface drone
A dramatic video shows the moment a Russian ‘maritime drone’ inflicts major damage on a key Ukrainian bridge connecting to Moldova.
The unmanned object is seen in the water approaching at-speed in the dark. A huge explosion then suddenly erupts.
Some reports say it was an underwater drone, while others believe the footage visibility shows it to be a USV – an Uncrewed Surface Vessel.
Russia has previously attacked the road-rail Zatoka Bridge across the Dniester estuary in the Odessa region, a strategic link between Ukraine and its troubled neighbour Moldova, where the pro-EU government fell yesterday.
It is the first time Russia has used this type of attack in the war, analysts say.
