The situation in Dzhankoi

Earlier in the morning, Crimean partisans reported that newly mobilized occupants had arrived in Dzhankoi, which is located in the northern part of the temporarily Russian-controlled Ukrainian peninsula, not far from the administrative border with the mainland of Ukraine.

According to the underground sources, Russian "mobiki" (mobilized troops ironically), arrive in this city daily by trains and buses. Access to the train station has been restricted for civilians in Dzhankoi.

A week ago, there were reports of a significant influx of mobilized occupant forces and equipment in Dzhankoi. These were observed at the city's airport.

Explosions in Crimea

Since the beginning of the full-scale war against Ukraine, Russian occupiers have used the occupied Crimea for their military purposes. They transport weapons and troops to the front lines through the peninsula, among other activities.

However, recently, it has become increasingly dangerous for terrorists to stay in Crimea. Ukrainian defense forces have been attacking military bases, depots, airfields, and even bays where enemy ships are stationed. A striking example of this was the Ukrainian Armed Forces' strike on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.

Yesterday, on November 1, in the morning, Russian occupiers reported a missile attack on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula. Witnesses reported hitting the places where the invaders were based.
