Ukraine fires barrage of missiles at Crimea – governor

Kiev’s troops have launched multiple projectiles at the city hosting a key Russian naval base, a top regional official said

Ukraine has fired multiple missiles at the city of Sevastopol in Crimea, Governor Mikail Razvozhayev said in the early hours of Sunday. The city hosts an important naval base and the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.

According to Razvozhayev, the ground defenses have shot down more than 10 missiles. He added that one projectile struck an office building, while parts of another missile hit a five-story residential complex.

“A woman has suffered a shrapnel wound to the arm,” the governor wrote on his Telegram channel. He said that the authorities are assessing the damage.

Unverified videos posted to Telegram show bright flashes in the sky and several large explosions on the ground.

Ukraine has repeatedly targeted Crimea, attempting to strike Russian naval assets with missiles, UAVs and seaborne drones.
