Moscow said Wednesday that a Russian warship protecting pipelines in the Black Sea was attacked by unmanned Ukrainian speedboats near the Bosphorus Strait, far from Russian and Ukrainian territory.
The Russian Defense Ministry said the naval ship Ivan Khurs repelled the attack by three unmanned watercraft in an incident that took place about 87 miles northeast of the Bosphorus and within Turkey’s exclusive economic zone, which extends about 230 miles from the country’s coast.
Ukraine has employed unmanned speedboats to attack Russian vessels before, but not so far from Russian or Ukrainian ports. The location of the attack demonstrates the potential of the war expanding to other parts of the region.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said the Russian warship is deployed in the area to protect the Turkish Steam and Blue Stream gas pipelines, which carry gas from Russia to Turkey. He said the deployment came in response to the bombing of the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.
“After the terror attack on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines on September 26, 2022, the Russian Armed Forces are carrying out measures to protect such facilities,” Konashenkov said.

Ukrainians are that stupid to get Turkey involved are they? Turkey is counting on that stream to make bank.
They were stupid enough to listen to the Yanks, they’re stupid enough for anything.
…. was attacked by unmanned Ukrainian speedboats
so drones, right? what was it all of 2 weeks ago uncle sam was furious at the thought that Russia might be getting some drones from Iran. as if Russia doesn’t make better drones than Iran ever could.
Ukraine just made enemy numero dos…!
Kamikaze speedboats are so cartoonish but the west will spin it into a successful attack.
Remember the attack on the USS Cole?
Those had “suicide” bombers on them.
This sounds more like a Bugs Bunny operation with a rope and a brick.
Not cartoonish. If you don’t understand a capability, better do some research before you sound ignorant on that matter.
The amount of explosive on those speedboats, could blow a hole big enough to sink a ship or completely disable it.
Donny, they did not work.
Cartoons fail and this clown show sure did.
You do know these type of posts you are making right now is why so many here give you so much grief?
Just admit this was a foolish adventure and some ( not me 😉 might respect your nonsense more instead of laughing at you so much.
Just trying to help….lol.
No, i get attacks here because im not pro Putin’s war nor anti US. And I support Ukraine in this war. That’s why.
No Donny it’s because you accept lies from the same people you call liars on other topics.
Disagreement does not make you unpopular here but that you tend to repeat some of the biggest lies the West tells us about the war. And insist they are true in the face of evidence it’s just another untruth by liars.
Why would russia want to defend their other pipeline when they obviously were the ones to blow nordstream up?
This, & the do nothing border incursion blindly attacking some random (non military?) point in Belgorod -causing no casualties, are just attempts for the Kiev govt boys to make noise & headlines, both to make it look like they are doing productive things in the eyes of NATO and western “partners” and because their grand counteroffensives are failing to materialize anywhere…which is to be expected. Keep sending that dough though!
Ukraine has become a rogue state since February 2014. Now that they have lost the war against Russsia this is becoming more evident by the day.
