Ukraine LIVE: Russia scrambles defences as explosions erupt in Crimea after ‘drone attack’
The Crimean port of Sevastopol was struck by a drone attack on Wednesday morning, according to Kremlin-backed officials, a day after another explosion was recorded in the northern part of the peninsula.
Russian forces are on high alert in occupied-Crimea after drone strikes allegedly hit the port city of Sevastopol on Wednesday morning. The Kremlin-backed administration suspended all sea passenger transport in the area after air defences were scrambled to counter multiple drones. Explosions were reported in the South Bay area, near to where Russia’s Black Sea Fleet are docked, though local governor Mikhail Razvozhayev said “navy men opened gun fire” successfully against the incoming UAVs. CCTV footage from a nearby apartment showed the windows shaking as an explosion resounded nearby.
