Explosions in Crimea

Earlier, a series of explosions occurred on the Russian-occupied peninsula. In particular, explosions thundered at the airfield near Novofedorovka in August  .  After that, the Russians began to leave the peninsula en masse. 

Then  there was a “bavovna” near Dzhankoy.  Panic began to spread among the inhabitants of Crimea, and on the way to the Kerch bridge  , a queue of 38,000 cars formed  that wanted to leave the peninsula.

Help UNIAN. On March 18, 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Federation, allegedly as a result of the so-called “referendum on the status of Crimea on March 16, 2014.

The beginning of the occupation of Crimea by Russia was laid by the blockade and seizure of strategic facilities of the peninsula and military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by units of the Russian army, in some cases under the cover of the so-called “little green men”.


    • Partisan activity?
      The new M30A1’s could inflict some decent damage if they can get in range. As far as we know, the range of this new one is not published?

  1. The burnt railroad section will be damaged due to the heat, even if it shouldn’t drop into the water. The one roadway is obviously destroyed.
    This attack (or accident) will constrict the Kerch Straight bridge for some time!

  2. Smoking again?

    Anyway, looking at the video footage just now, that bridge is fucked.

What is your opinion?
