Guerrillas reconnoitered the territory of an operating oil depot in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol (Crimea). It is guarded, and entry is through a checkpoint, according to the Atesh guerrilla movement.

"Our agents scouted the hypothetical location of the oil depot and were able to find an operational facility. The entire territory is guarded, and a checkpoint has been set up," the statement says.

Atesh assumes that "the oil depot is being used by the occupiers in full force."

"It is noteworthy that while we were filming, the outfit was using their phones, which is a common occurrence for soldiers far from the front. Soon, this will play a cruel joke on them," the guerrillas promise.

Situation in Crimea

On February 14, explosions were heard off the coast of the temporarily occupied Crimea, and smoke was seen in the sea. Eyewitnesses reported that the explosions were caused by a fire on one of the Russian ships. In addition, in the temporarily occupied Crimea near Dzhankoi, residents heard a loud explosion on February 13.

On January 31, explosions were heard near the Belbek airfield in Sevastopol. Later it became known that Ukrainian defenders had launched a missile attack on the facility. The next day, on February 1, Russian media reported a strike on a communications center at the Belbek airfield. Read more about the attack in RBC-Ukraine's report.
