The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence shared online a “travel advisory” warning which is “in effect for certain beaches in Crimea.
The video shows images of explosions which happened last summer where Russian tourists could be seen fleeing as missiles rained down on key installation sites, with one image showing a woman crying in the back of a car.
The captions in the video read, “A travel advisory is in effect for certain beaches.

Tamila Tasheva, the Ukrainian president’s envoy on Crimea, told POLITICO, “Ukraine will choose the way to bring Crimea back, using political and military means.
“To minimize Ukrainian military losses, minimize threats to civilians who live in occupied territories, as well as the destruction of civilian infrastructure, Ukraine plans to give Russia a choice on how to leave Crimea.
“If they don’t agree to leave voluntarily, Ukraine will continue to liberate its land by military means.”
Ukraine also has “Storm Shadow missiles” which were donated by the British government which provides Kyiv with the ability to hit many targets in Crimea including the Kerch Bridge which is the main line between Russia and the annexed peninsula.
All of Crimea is within range and Ukraine warned Moscow that they will liberate Crimea in any way that they “deem necessary” and warn they will not “ask anyone for permission.”
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said in May, Crimea is a “our land” and warned Russians if they have “a little bit of intelligence” then they need “to get out” immediately.
Danilov told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, “It’s hard for me to say whether they will give something away without a fight.
“All I can say is that, if necessary, we will release in such a way that we consider necessary at the time of making certain decisions.”
