A communication hub of the Russian occupiers was hit in the city of Alushta in the temporarily occupied Crimea on the night of Friday, May 24, according to the Atesh guerrilla movement.

Russian military unit No. 28735 came under attack, which is an important point of communication and control of the Russian occupiers in Crimea.

The guerrillas note that it used to be a Ukrainian military unit, but after the Russian occupation, it was used by the Russians.

"It seems that there was significant damage to the equipment and many Russian occupants were killed. They probably also managed to destroy the control center of this center. We are awaiting official confirmation from the Special Operations Forces of Ukraine," the statement says.

On the evening of Thursday, May 23, an alarm was announced in the occupied Crimea. Residents reported explosions in several cities - Simferopol, Alushta, and Dzhankoy.
