Ukraine on Sunday denied carrying out a drone attack on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea fleet in annexed Crimea, that Russian officials said wounded six personnel.

Sergiy Bratchuk, the spokesman for the coastal Odessa military region, dismissed claims that Ukraine was behind the attack as “sheer provocation”.

“Our liberation of Crimea from the occupiers will be carried out in another way and much more effectively,” he wrote on Telegram.
