    You're confusing shipping with harvest.

    Last I head they had 3-4million tons of grain to be exported.
    Most ships take in the range of 40k tons.

    That's a few ships.

    If that doesn't work, I've got an alternative solution to suggest: make Vodka out of it and bribe the Russian soldiers with it.

    You lost a flag ship. In a land war. Against a country without a navy. Again

    “Negotiations with Russia are not working. Putin is breaking contracts and blackmailing us all.

    If Russia continues to threaten grain exports from Ukraine, the free world must unite in defense of shipping by providing military escort”

    - Lithuania’s Foreign Affairs Ministry

    Turkey wants to be a regional power and already talks to Russia.

    They seem like they'd be almost trivially counterable with systems like CIWS. Do they just not depress far enough or?

    Doubt Russian ships got those.
    Problem is see USV as they are so low on the surface.
    I guess western more advanced version will be more stealthy and have EW to counter point defense systems.

    Look at the videos, they kept firing at them. For some reason (more vodka, Vitaliy, cyka blyat) they kept missing.

    Wikipedia says the Makarov has 2.

    Whether they were operational is another matter of course.

    Maybe it happened off-screen against some of the other drones but if you have to use small arms and launch a heli to shoot at it with a machine gun I think its safe to assume that any other counter measures were not working (or had failed to take the target out before getting too close).

    If the attacks were successful it isn't much to take pictures of.

    The ships didn't sink, but assess damage to see how long they will be out of commission.

    It isn't in Russia's interest to provide feedback to the attackers how successful they were. Now if the ships were undamaged they would have posted pictures gloating.
