This was reported by the Main Intelligence Directorate.
The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine confirmed that as a result of a night operation in the temporarily occupied Crimea, the military hit small landing boats of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The agency noted that these were boats of the 11770 project and added that the vessels were crewed and loaded with armored vehicles, including BTR-82.

Military expert tells about Russian panic in Kherson region
Director of the information and consulting company Defense Express Serhiy Zgurets noted that the Russian army is forced to transfer reserves to the left bank of the Dnipro River, and this weakens the enemy's actions in other areas.
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"Ukrainian forces do have areas that can be conditionally called bridgeheads on the left bank of the Dnipro River. This is a site near Antonivskyi Bridge, in the area of the railway and road bridge, and a second foothold near the village of Krynky, where the enemy was driven out. We are currently setting up logistical support from the right bank for our units operating on the left bank," explained Zgurets.
According to the military expert, the road controlled by Ukrainian forces from the right bank goes close to difficult areas along the Dnipro River.
"There is an even more powerful rocky road controlled by the enemy. Control over the roads depends on the forces and means. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are effectively using drones and artillery. The enemy is already panicking, moving some units from the Zaporizhzhia direction to the area connected with the actions of our forces on the left bank. The main goal of the Defense Forces at this stage is to introduce instability into the enemy's actions, forcing Russian army to pull out its reserves. And this weakens the enemy's actions in other areas," Zgurets stressed.
