MOSCOW, January 11 (Itar-Tass) – RIA Novosti. The Ukrainian special services are preparing an “attack of drones” on the Crimea, and Kiev will present the attack as an act of the Crimean-Tatar resistance, Ruslan Balbek told RIA Novosti. Balbek is a member of the Duma from the Crimean region.
“The saboteurs do not believe in the successful outcome of the attack, their main goal is information noise,” Balbek noted, adding that the Crimean Tatars living in Ukraine told him about this.
According to the deputy, the diversion will be similar to the unmanned attack on the Russian base of Khmeimim in Syria.

“There is already a well-worked out scheme: the American Poseidon intelligence plane is loitering over neutral waters, to give out target designation and correction of data to Ukrainian drones, and although there is no doubt that this whole “sparrow flock” will be crushed, this “operation of the Crimean-Tatar resistance,” should have the effect of an exploding bomb,” he explained.
The parliamentarian called on not to “turn a blind eye” to the flights of the “Poseidons”, which issue target designations to the Ukrainian military in the Crimea.
“Nothing should prevent us from including electronic warfare and suppression stations on our territory- we have to arrange a “spoiled telephone” for our Ukrainian colleagues,” Balbek said.On the night of January 6, terrorists attempted to attack the air base of Khmeimim and the naval base in Tartus using drones. Thirteen drones approached Russian objects, but the attack failed.RIA Novosti
