This was reported by the Krymskyi Veter TV channel.

According to residents, the Russian military again used a smoke screen in Sevastopol's Southern Bay and from the Northern Bridge.

Later, it intensified in the area of the Oil Harbor in Inkerman.

According to the Telegram channel, this is where the main oil depot of the Black Sea Fleet is located, where millions of tons of fuel are stored.

Subsequently, the so-called governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, said that, according to preliminary data, downed drones had fallen in Verkhniosadove and Kacha as a result of air defense operations. He added that there were no casualties. At the same time, there was a "small grass fire" in Verkhniosadove.

Razvozhayev said that in Kacha, the drone went down on the territory of vineyards, and the grass was also on fire.

The "governor" wrote that in the area of Sevastopol Bay, they use means of aerosol masking. He says the smell is unpleasant, but it is absolutely safe.

Instead, the Crimean Partisans report hit on a Russian military unit near the village of Verkhniosadove near Sevastopol.

Later, in a comment to Babel, a representative of the Ukrainian Intelligence Service, Andriy Yusov, confirmed the missile attack on the locations of Russian equipment in the occupied Crimea. He noted that the intelligence would provide more detailed information later.

"The planned work of the Ukrainian Security and Defense Forces to destroy the Russian troops' military facilities in the temporarily occupied territories, including the Ukrainian Crimea, continues. The details will be made public by the General Staff very soon," the intelligence representative said on the air of the national telethon.

He noted that in recent days there has been "a lot of news from Crimea".

"It's all part of the same set of measures. All these measures are effective, believe me," Yusov said.

According to him, at this stage, the goal of the measures is to weaken the aggressor, as Crimea is still used by Russia as a logistics hub, in particular for the transfer of forces and equipment to other parts of the frontline.

"In order to destroy this logistics hub, certain operations are being used and implemented at sea, on land and in the air. It will continue," added the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate. 

Ukrainian military's Strategic Communications Directorate confirmed a successful strike on the command post of the Russian Black Sea Fleet near the temporarily occupied Sevastopol.
