Situation in Crimea

The situation in Crimea is currently marked by increasing reports of explosions, and pro-Ukrainian sentiments are noted among the residents. Ukrainian forces have conducted numerous operations on the peninsula and in the Black Sea, targeting Russian bases, depots, and ships.

On December 20, explosions were heard in Crimea. Later, media reported that the explosions targeted the center of the long-range space communication of the Russian Aerospace Forces, resulting in damage.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed the opinion that de-occupying Crimea would be easier than the Donbas region. According to him, this concerns not only the liberation of territories but also the overall sentiment of the population.
