On the night of Tuesday, April 2, explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol, leaving some residents without electricity. It later turned out to be the result of a power substation being blown up by Ukrainian intelligence.

This was reported by local Telegram channels.

According to eyewitnesses, two explosions were heard in the city. After that, the electricity went out in the area.

"Something exploded twice loudly around 2:05 a.m. The lights and power went out in the area," the source said.

Later, local channels reported a power outage in a number of Sevastopol districts. Residents wrote on social media that the blackout was caused by an accident at a substation. 

At 7:48 a.m., the so-called Sevastopolenergo published information that a technological disruption in the power grid had occurred between 2:07 a.m. and 6:42 a.m. on April 2.

Subsequently, sources in the Ukrainian media outlets Ukrainian Pravda, Suspilne, and NV reported that representatives of the Ukrainian intelligence service had blown up a power substation in occupied Sevastopol.

It is noted that as a result of the attack, the power substation was put out of commission.

"The group was working on the spot. The power substation is out of commission," a Ukrainian intelligence source said.

At the same time, the occupation governor of the city, Mikhail Razvozhayev, said that the statements about the power plant being blown up were fake. According to him, it was a technological violation at the district substation.

"To put it simply, it was a short circuit," Razvozhayev added.

  • On March 28, a Russian military plane crashed in the sea near Sevastopol, the pilot ejected, presumably due to Russian air defense.
