On Friday, a missile and robot attack hit the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, Crimea, according to the Russian occupation regime. At least one person is said to have been killed in the attack.
– The enemy opened fire on the naval headquarters. Debris fell near the Lunatyarsky Theater, a Russian military spokesman said, according to local media.
At first there was talk of rockets, but then the testimonies spoke of cruise robots, which are much larger and more powerful. Russian air defenses are said to have shot down several projectiles.
But at least one managed to get through, and video footage shows clouds of smoke rising over the city.
Food prices around the world were affected by Russia’s withdrawal earlier this year from an agreement on the safe passage of exports through the Black Sea. But the Ukrainian attack against Russian naval forces stationed in Crimea allowed a number of cargo ships to control the new corridor without fear of being bombed. The first ship to be loaded with grain was the Africa Flexible, which recently departed for Asia with 3,000 tons of cargo.
However, the report urges caution and says it is not ready to talk about a complete breakthrough in Zaporizhia. The geotagged images, said to have been taken on Thursday, show Ukrainian armored vehicles south of Russian trenches and obstacles forming the third line. They are scheduled to participate in “limited fighting” west of Verbove.
In the far east, near the town of Bakhmut, Ukraine is launching a coordinated attack on a number of villages, according to pro-Russian officials in the region.
– The situation in Bashmut remains acute, and shell fire is causing chaos, says spokesman Denis Busgelen in a video clip.
But he claims that the Russian occupation forces are holding out.
