"Explosions were heard in Simferopol, local residents write," the message says.

According to the SHOT Telegram channel, there were loud explosions over Simferopol and Dzhankoi. Preliminary, air defense is working.

"According to SHOT subscribers, the first explosions were heard at about 1:25 am, more than ten powerful claps were heard in total," SHOT administrators wrote.

The occupiers' airfield is located in Dzhankoi and one of the Russian brigades is based there.

The Crimean bridge is also blocked, according to the facility's Telegram channel.

"Vehicular traffic on the Crimean Bridge is temporarily blocked," the channel said.

In the morning, Vladimir Rogov, head of the Russian parliamentary commission on sovereignty, patriotic projects and support for veterans, said that Russian air defense was operating in occupied Crimea.

According to him, Ukraine allegedly attacked the peninsula with ATACMS missiles.

The head of the occupation authorities of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, said that the region was attacked by ATACMS missiles. According to him, in the area of Donske village, Simferopol district, "unexploded submunitions scattered after the ATACMS missiles were shot down."

ASTRA later clarified that five Russian soldiers were wounded in the strike on the airfield in Dzhankoi.

According to the telegram channel's sources in the Russian Emergencies Ministry of Crimea, the strike was carried out by ballistic missiles (presumably ATACMS) at the location of the helicopter regiment of the 4th Air Force and Air Defense Command of the Southern Military District of the Russian Federation.

The Russian Defense Ministry did not comment on the situation. Ukraine has not yet commented.
