Ukraine has added more injury to insult for Putin and blows up another ammo dump in Crimea

Ukraine launched a drone strike on a Russian ammunition depot in occupied Crimea on Saturday causing a “detonation” followed by a huge explosion.

People were evacuated in the Krasnogvardeisky district which is around three miles from the ammo depot.

This is the latest in a series of attacks on Crimea which has seen thousands evacuated from towns which has led to tens of thousands of Russian holidaymakers flee through war torn Ukraine to try and seek safety.

This is a huge humiliation for Vladimir Putin even more so after his precious Kerch Bridge has been attacked a few times disrupting traffic between mainland Russia and Crimea.

The Moscow-installed leader of the region Sergei Aksyonov, said that the Ukrainian drone attack was successful in blowing up the ammunition depot.

Aksyonov wrote on Telegram, “As a result of an enemy drone on the Krasnogvardeisky district, there was a detonation at an ammunition depot.”

Aksyonov added, “A decision was taken to evacuate people [living] within five kilometres” of the zone.

On Wednesday Ukraine launched an attack at a Russian military base in Crimea for the third night in a row which led to “more than 2,000 people” being evacuated from the area.

In the Kirovske district a fire broke out at the Starokrymsk military training grounds for the 56th Guards Air Assault regiment and a major road was partially closed.

Russian-installed governor Sergei Aksyonov of Crimea said, “It is planned to temporarily evacuate residents of four settlements – this is more than 2,000 people.”

According to the Crimean Wind Telegram channel, an ammunition depot had also exploded as “munitions continuing to detonate.”

On Monday a section of the Kerch Bridge was destroyed and on Tuesday Russian officials told tourists to drive through the war zone in Ukraine to escape Crimea.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning Ukraine launched a drone attack on Crimea, and the Russia claims that 17 were destroyed and another 11 were intercepted by their electronic warfare systems.

The Institute for the Study of War said that officials have been “urging Russian civilians to drive through and to a warzone rather than advising them to avoid it as a responsible government would.”
