He then claimed that most of the missiles were shot down but one, however a gas pipeline has also been hit in Crimea.

Vladimir Rogov, of the military-civilian administration in the region, said of the Storm Shadow strikes, “In total, three or four arrivals are reported. The extent of damage is still unknown.”

The pipeline, located at the Arabat Spit Henichesk, is on fire after the missile strike and 20,000 people in the annexed peninsula are without gas.

Moscow-installed acting governor of the occupied Kherson region, Vladimir Saldo said the repairs on the pipeline should be completed within the next two days.

Saldo said, “It will take some time to restore gas supply specifically in the direction of Genichesk, because more than 20,000 residents were left without gas.”

It has further been reported that a railway bridge has been forced to close in the area, and the missile used in the strike is believed to have been personally signed by President Volodymyr Zelensky.

It is thought that the closure of the Chongar bridge in Crimea would temporarily stop Russia from transporting military supplies and troops to Kherson and the Zaporizhzhia regions.

Ukrainian officials have now bought the war to the Black Sea and Russian ports are now legitimate targets and any Russian ship will be considered to be carrying military cargo and will be attacked.

Under the order of the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine all ships will be sent to ports of the Russian Federation including those which are occupied by the Russians.

In a statement on the website of Derzhhydrographiya of the State Maritime and River Transport Service reads, “War risk area. The water area of the internal and external roads of the ports of Anapa, Novorossiysk, Gelendzhik, Tuapse, Sochi, Taman.”

President Volodymyr Zelesnky has warned Moscow that they will “take back” the whole of the occupied annexed peninsula of Crimea.

President Zelensky said, “The challenge is to take back all of Crimea, because it is our sovereign territory.

“The Crimean bridge is not just a logistical route. It is a route used to speed up the war with ammunition, and this is done daily, and it is militarizing the Crimean peninsula.

“For us, for obvious reasons, this is an enemy facility built outside the law, outside international laws and all applicable norms, so it is clear that this is our target.”
