missiles destroyed? – Injured in drone strike in Crimea


Ukrainian drones allegedly shot down in the north of the Black Sea peninsula in Crimea. One person was injured by falling debris, Crimea chief Sergei Aksyonov said. The Ukrainian side has confirmed that the attack was aimed at transporting missiles.

The military intelligence service in Kiev announced that missiles had been destroyed. In this way, the “demilitarization of Russia” should continue and Crimea should be prepared for liberation. The Russian armed forces transport missiles for the Black Sea Fleet overland to the military ports. In addition, friendly troops in the occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporizhia are supplied via the railway.

Russian authorities have not confirmed the destroyed missiles. They reported on Monday that they had shot down Ukrainian drones. Homes and a grocery store were damaged by fallen debris. One person was injured in the process. According to Dzhankoy’s head of administration, Igor Ivin, a fire has broken out in the stricken store.

Explosion in ammunition depot
In Dschankoj there was already a heavy explosion in an ammunition depot in August last year. There were then injuries and thousands had to be brought to safety. The train service was temporarily suspended in the middle of the tourist season. The train connections from Moscow go via Dschankoj over the new Crimean bridge to the capital Simferopol on the peninsula.

These incidents repeatedly raise the question among Russian observers of how well the militarily well-armed peninsula, controlled by Moscow since 2014, is actually being protected. Attacks from the Ukrainian side have also been reported for months from other Russian regions in the border area with Ukraine. There were deaths, injuries and severe destruction in the Bryansk, Kursk and Belgorod regions. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had announced that he wanted to liberate Crimea, as well as all other occupied territories of Ukraine.
