Kiev confirms attacks on oil and ammunition depots in Crimea

The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) attacked an oil and ammunition depot in Crimea. The Department of Strategic Communications of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported the destruction of the facilities, posting a video of the aftermath of the operation.

The representative of the Russian administration of the peninsula, Sergei Aksyonov, confirmed that an ammunition depot in Crimea exploded as a result of the impact of a Ukrainian drone. A decision was made to evacuate the population within a radius of 5 kilometers from the site of the incident to special centers for temporary accommodation. In addition, traffic on the Crimean Railway has been temporarily stopped to minimize risks.

At the time of the attack on the oil depot and ammunition depot in Oktyabrsky, there was a closed military airfield. Earlier, the Crimean guerrilla movement Atesh reported that the Russian armed forces were transporting military equipment to the airport, including infantry fighting vehicles, KamAZ trucks and Tiger armored vehicles.

Aksionov noted that there was no information about injured people or damaged buildings.

Adviser to the head of the Crimean administration, Oleg Kryuchkov, called on witnesses to provide the Federal Security Service (FSB) with information about those who filmed the aftermath of the attack. He recalled that posting videos of military installations or critical installations on the Internet is an unacceptable and dangerous practice.

On July 19, a fire broke out at a training ground near the Kirovsky district in Crimea, as a result of which the inhabitants of four nearby villages were evacuated, and traffic on the Tavrida highway was temporarily blocked.
