Russian headquarters in Crimea burns after the attack

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.

Several ships

Earlier today, it was announced that the Arwiat ship is now on its way, carrying 17,600 tons of wheat to Africa. It is the first grain ship of this size to leave the port of Chornomorsk along a new corridor through the Black Sea, Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov wrote. On X (formerly Twitter).

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.

Another positive sign for Ukraine is that Ukrainian forces are now operating behind Russia’s third and final line of defense in western Zaporizhia. Writes the ISW Research Center.

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.
