Explosions in Crimea near Yevpatoriya and Sevastopol

On January 4, at approximately 4:15 pm Kyiv time, a series of explosions occurred in the temporarily occupied Crimea. A correspondent of Krym.Realii reported that about 10 explosions were heard in Sevastopol.

The Russian-installed mayor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, said that this was the largest attack on Crimea in recent times, but assured that it had been repelled. The Russian Defense Ministry said that 10 missiles were shot down over Crimea.

The Crimean Wind Telegram channel reports that a military unit near the village of Uyutne near Yevpatoria was hit by a missile, and that ambulances were sent there, as well as a military unit in Yukharynska arroyo, Sevastopol.

The Strategic Communications center reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces had hit the command post of the Russian occupying forces near Sevastopol.

The commander of the Air Force, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk, also confirmed the successful attack on Crimea.

"On January 2, the Russian Ministry of Lies reported that Russian missiles hit a ‘bunker with Deputy Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhnyi and nine other generals of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.’ Greetings to the occupiers in Crimea!

I am waiting for the same epic report from the enemy propaganda from Sevastopol and Yevpatoria on January 4 and once again thank the Air Force pilots and everyone who planned the operation for their impeccable combat work," he wrote on his Telegram channel.

UK to provide Ukraine with 200 missiles for air defense

The UK Ministry of Defense has approved the supply of a new batch of missiles to Ukraine for its air defense systems. According to the official website of the UK government, the package includes about 200 anti-aircraft missiles to strengthen air defense.

"Putin is testing Ukraine’s defences and the West’s resolve, hoping that he can clutch victory from the jaws of defeat. But he is wrong. Ukraine’s degradation of the Russian Black Sea fleet has proven it is still in this fight to win," the statement said.

As part of this package, Ukraine will receive ASRAAM missiles developed by British Aerospace. These missiles are used in British air defense systems, which Ukraine received in 2022.
