In the temporarily occupied Crimea, forces and means of air defense of the Russian occupiers allegedly operated on the night of March 3 due to a massive attack using drones. Before this, there was a series of explosions on the peninsula, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

According to the defense ministry of the aggressor country, 38 drones were involved in this attack. The Russian side traditionally accuses Ukraine of such incidents.

The Russian ministry has once again claimed to have stopped an attempt to attack some objects using drones.

In particular, the ministry reports the destruction of all 38 drones over the territory of the occupied Crimea.

Explosions in occupied Crimea on the night of March 3

Earlier tonight, it was reported that powerful explosions occurred in the city of Feodosia in the eastern part of the temporarily occupied Crimea. Local sources reported the operation of air defense systems in the city against drones that were presumably attempting to attack the local oil depot.

Several videos of these nighttime explosions were published online.

In addition, the occupying administration announced the closure of automobile traffic on the Crimean Bridge.

Situation in the Crimea

Explosions are increasingly heard throughout Crimea. Ukrainian Defense Forces have conducted dozens of operations on the peninsula and in the Black Sea, destroying Russian bases, warehouses, and ships.

Meanwhile, the head of the Chief of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Kyrylo Budanov, announced new surprises in Crimea and advised against using the Kerch Bridge.

On March 1, there were also explosions in occupied Crimea, and at that time, Russian interveners complained of a missile attack.
