According to local residents, the Russian ship exploded during a raid in Sevastopol. It happened after 10:30. Residents of the occupied Sevastopol center also reportedly felt the explosion.
“The deafening explosion was felt by residents of the city centre, with car alarms going off,” the report said.
Later, the network released footage showing the Russian ship on fire. Project 21631 “Buyan-M” is a small missile ship believed to have exploded near Sevastopol. It is the carrier of Kalibr cruise missiles.
Aggressors make excuses
Rasvosev, known as the “governor” of Sevastopol, said the loud sounds were not attributed to an explosion on a ship, but to exercises by the Russian Federation’s Black Sea Fleet. He says the aggressors are practicing anti-submarine sabotage.
The situation in Crimea
Russian invaders are using the occupied Crimea for their military purposes. Across the peninsula, the occupiers are throwing arms and manpower to the front lines.
However, recently it has become dangerous for the aggressors in Crimea. Defense forces attack military bases, warehouses, airfields and even bays where enemy ships are docked. A clear example is the attack by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol.
So, recently, the ship “Pavlo Tershavin” of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation exploded near Sevastopol.
