Shafaq News/ The Russian Defense Ministry said on Oct. 29 that its forces have destroyed 36 Ukrainian drones over the Black Sea and northwestern Crimea.
Several explosions were heard near Chornomorske and Saky in occupied Crimea late on Oct. 28, according to several Telegram channels.
Explosions have been occurring regularly in Russian-annexed Crimea. The Russian Defense Ministry alleges that these explosions are the result of Ukrainian attacks.
Starting in the summer of 2023, there have been a series of increasingly frequent attacks on Russian military facilities on the Crimean peninsula.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Oct. 24 that recent Ukrainian attacks have denied the Russian fleet safe haven and secure maritime corridors in the western part of the Black Sea, as Kyiv's troops look to squeeze Russian-installed forces out of Crimea.
