A suspected Ukrainian missile attack reportedly hit the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol on September 22, according to The Kyiv Independent. This was announced by Mikhail Razvoshayev, the head of the Sevastopol occupation government installed by Russia. According to him, shortly after the attack, several explosions were heard in Sevastopol. Kiev has not commented on these allegations.
Razwoshayev warns: People should avoid the city center
Razvoshayev states that air defense measures caused rocket debris to fall near a local theater of war. He also warned the population of another “possible” air attack and appealed not to go to the city center and to seek shelter if there was an alarm.
Wall of smoke over Zavostopol
The Russian Defense Ministry claimed the same day that its troops had neutralized a Ukrainian guided missile and two drones over the western coast of Crimea. During this alleged first attack, Russian forces erected a smokescreen over Sevastopol Bay.
It is important to emphasize that The Kyiv Independent could not confirm the veracity of these claims. Sevastopol, home base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, is located at the southern end of the Crimean Peninsula.
