Explosions in Crimea

Previously, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, referred to the Crimean Bridge as a legitimate target for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He added that the Crimean Bridge was an unnecessary object that needed to be destroyed.

Additionally, at the end of October, it became known that the Ukrainian Armed Forces had struck a strategic object of Russia's air defense systems on the western coast of Crimea.

It's worth noting that due to Ukrainian strikes on Crimea, the Russian command has been relocating ships from the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol to other ports.

On November 4, the Strategic Communications Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that Ukrainian forces had targeted the Zaliv shipbuilding plant in Crimea.
