A Russian Lancet kamikaze drone had destroyed a Ukrainian military boat, according to a Friday report by Russian-state media outlet RIA Novosti, citing exclusive footage it received.

The attack happened in the Dnieper River located between Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

The report claims the footage received shows the Ukrainian ship hit by a Russian reconnaissance drone. The video also showed smoke emitting from the vessel shortly after impact.

The Lancet drone, which has one large X-shaped wing and an X-shaped tail, had received new aerodynamics.
