Russian occupiers have sounded the alarm in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol. After this, explosions were heard in the city, according to local Telegram channels.

Locals report hearing explosions in the Balaklava district of the city.

It is worth noting that public transportation, both maritime and land-based, has stopped operating in the city. The Russians have also closed the Crimean Bridge.

Propagandists are also reporting the alleged operation of anti-aircraft missile systems in Sevastopol and the shooting down of two missiles.

It's important to mention that the so-called governor of Sevastopol, Mykhailo Razvozhaiev, has commented on the reports of explosions.

He stated that Sevastopol had an air defense system that supposedly had shot down a missile over the sea in the vicinity of Lyubimivka.

The situation in Sevastopol

In recent months, there have been increasing reports of explosions in Sevastopol and other cities in Crimea. For instance, on the evening of October 18, a state of emergency was declared in Sevastopol after explosions were heard in the vicinity of the Saharna Holovka settlement.

It was later revealed that there were at least four depots with Russian weapons near the settlement, including missile weaponry.

Yesterday, Russian media reported that Russian weapon depots in Crimea were attacked at that time. It's likely that a missile struck the territory of depots belonging to the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
