Russia accuses Ukrainian forces of targeting civilians with the explosions in Crimea, which Russia says were caused by a Ukrainian-controlled “kamikaze drone.” One person was reportedly injured by shrapnel, Russia adds.
Ukrainian intelligence services spoke of “explosions” that resulted in the destruction of Russian cruise missiles (“Kalibr”) being transported by train, in the city of Dzhankoi, on the Crimean peninsula. But Ukraine has not confirmed that it is responsible for these “explosions”.
For Ihor Ivin, an official belonging to the regional government (installed by Russia), the explosions were caused by drones equipped with explosives. A 33-year-old civilian was reportedly taken to hospital with serious but non-fatal injuries, according to Ihor Ivin, who said a house, a school and a grocery store were also hit by shrapnel.
