TEHRAN, Jul. 31 (MNA) – Ukrainian forces carried out an attack against the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol early on Sunday, Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhayev announced in a social media post.

According to Razvozhayev, the attack was carried out via an unidentified object – presumably a UAV – that flew into the headquarters’ courtyard.

The attack left five members of the headquarters’ staff injured, but no one was killed, according to the governor of Sevastopol, Sputnik reported. 

The last Sunday of July is observed annually in Russia as Navy Day, and Razvozhayev suggested that “Ukrainian Nazis” launched this attack to ruin the holiday for the Russian people.

The governor also declared that all Navy Day festivities in the city have been cancelled due to security concerns and urged people to stay home if possible while the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) investigates the attack.
