Russian missiles destroyed by an explosion in occupied Crimea

Russian missiles destroyed by an explosion in occupied Crimea

Local sources reported explosions in the northern city of Dzhankoy. The city has been a military base for Russia since the occupation. According to a statement from the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, an explosion in the city destroyed cruise missiles transported by rail. Russia’s Kalibr-KN missiles with a range of 2,500 km on land and 375 km at sea are said to be intended for use by the Black Sea Fleet.

Ukraine has not confirmed responsibility for the attack. The Defense Ministry said the explosion “continues the process of disarming Russia and preparing the Ukrainian Crimea peninsula for liberation.”

Anton Gerashchenko, adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, released a video that reportedly shows a powerful and fiery explosion hitting a train station in the city. His claims could not be verified.

Russia denies these reports. According to the Russian President of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, anti-aircraft fire was deployed near Djankoy. It appears that a Ukrainian drone fell out of the sky and a house was damaged.

Igor Even, the Russia-appointed director of Djankoy, said a 33-year-old man was hit by debris from the downed drone and taken to hospital. Evin said multiple buildings—a house, a school, and a department store—were on fire and the power grid was damaged. He did not mention anything about military targets.

According to Oleg Kryuchkov, adviser to the Russian president on Crimea, civilian targets were targeted. Several drones loaded with shrapnel were to be deployed. Kryuchkov said one drone went down near a technical school, while others were shot down in residential areas.

Major is corrupted

While Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for Monday night’s attack, it has shown that it is capable of attacking long-range targets in Crimea. A video investigation previously revealed that Russia’s flagship ship in the Black Sea, the Admiral Makarov, was damaged in October in a drone attack on the port of Sevastopol. In addition, Ukraine was said to have struck the bridge connecting the peninsula with Russia, as well as Saki Airport and the Naval Command headquarters in Sevastopol.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has always vowed to liberate Crimea, along with all of occupied southern and eastern Ukraine.
