Russian occupiers blocked the Crimean Bridge on the morning of December 23. They also declared a missile threat in the occupied peninsula according to Russian Telegram channels.

At around 9:47, propagandists claimed a purported aviation threat across the entire territory of Crimea. Subsequently, a missile threat was announced.

Within minutes, Russian occupiers declared the closure of traffic on the Crimean Bridge.

Later, local Telegram channels reported explosions in the Dzhankoy district of Crimea. Presumably, these were launches of Russian air defense missiles.

Situation in Crimea

Overall, explosions are increasingly heard in Crimea. Our defenders have conducted dozens of operations on the peninsula and in the Black Sea, destroying Russian bases, warehouses, and ships.

On December 20, explosions were heard in Crimea. Later, the media reported that the center of the long-range space communication of the Russian Aerospace Forces was "hit," causing destruction.

Also, on December 21, explosions were heard in Kerch, and smoke was observed in the area of the Industrial Highway. There is a large military-industrial plant called Albatross located there. According to recent data, it was abandoned and not in use.

During these incidents, occupiers also blocked the Crimean Bridge and claimed the operation of air defense systems.
