"A loud explosion was heard in all districts of Sevastopol. After that, an air raid siren was activated," the statement says. 

According to eyewitnesses, it was a "direct hit."

According to another Telegram channel, the hit was in the area of Sakharna Holovka, where a military unit of the occupying Russian forces is located.

The so-called governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, said that "the Russian fleet is repelling the attack of air targets."

  • On the night of October 16-17, Ukrainian defenders successfully attacked Russian helicopters and airfields in Luhansk and Berdyansk.
