What is known about Dzhankoi

There is a military airfield in Dzhankoi in the north of Crimea, which is actively used by the Russians. Earlier, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that the Russians had turned Dzhankoi into their military base.

Explosions were repeatedly heard in the Dzhankoi area. So, in particular, in March, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed Russian Kalibr cruise missiles in Dzhankoi, which the occupiers were transporting by rail.

The situation in Crimea

In general, explosions are heard more and more frequently in Crimea, and pro-Ukrainian sentiments are recorded among residents. Ukrainian spies have already conducted dozens of operations on the peninsula and in the Black Sea, destroying Russian bases, warehouses, and ships.

For example, recently the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense conducted a special operation, as part of which President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's address was shown in Crimea.

In addition, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed the opinion that it will be easier to de-occupy Crimea than Donbas. According to him, it is not only about the liberation of territories but also about the mood of the population in general.
