‘Danger’ of new Ukrainian attack in Sevastopol: authorities
The Russian-installed head of Sevastopol in annexed Crimea warned of a possible new Ukrainian missile attack on Saturday, a day after Kyiv hit Russia’s Black Sea Fleet headquarters in the city.
“Attention! Missile danger!” Sevastopol governor Mikhail Razvozhayev said on Telegram.
“Close your windows properly and stay away from them,” he said, asking commuters to get out of cars and public transport and seek shelter in a safe place.
But shortly afterwards he said the “danger is over.”
Kyiv struck the Russian naval headquarters on Friday, sparking a huge fire and leaving at least one Russian serviceman missing.
Razvozhayev had earlier said Saturday that “fragments” of a missile had fallen outside the city.”
Crimea, annexed by Russia in 2014, has been targeted by Kyiv throughout Moscow’s offensive but attacks have intensified this summer.
