Ukrainian Boat Chased by Russian FPV Drone

FPV drone footage released by Russian sources shows what is allegedly a Ukrainian riverine vessel being chased by a kamikaze drone. The footage ends before a strike is seen for obvious reasons, but there is no secondary view of the attack. It's unclear if the vessel was struck or if the drone detonated above water.


It's important to note, that due to the inherent latency with these drones, there is almost always a disconnect between the detonation of the device and when the video feed cuts out. Just because there is no secondary drone footage, does not mean that the drone did not impact with the Ukrainian vessel, it just means that we have no direct evidence at this time to show that the impact did in fact occur.


For the purpose of context, this video was recorded on July 18, 2023 near the Antonovsky bridge.
