The so-called governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, has told the citizens to arrange shelters on their own, as the occupation authorities don't have the resources

Razvozhayev wrote about this on Telegram, responding to the concerns of citizens about air raid shelters in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol.

"I would like to make one more important point about the shelters: don't expect someone to come and stock water, install chairs, flooring, and ventilation. It is impossible to arrange all temporary shelters in this way, it would take billions," he said.

Razvozhayev noted that all the shelters are temporary and are not bomb shelters.

"They are needed mainly to hide from rocket fragments and broken glass. This also needs to be understood. And accept it," the occupation governor said.

He said that they allegedly started preparing the shelters a year ago, when "the city was relatively calm," but "what is happening now is already a reality." Razvozhayev therefore ordered an inspection of all shelters in the city.

Ukraine’s attack on the Russian Black Sea Fleet HQ in Sevastopol

On Friday, September 22, powerful explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Crimea: the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed the defeat of the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol.

The Russian propaganda agency TASS reported that the wreckage from the attack on the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters was "scattered hundreds of meters away." A "large number" of ambulances were on their way to the scene. 

At the same time, the so-called governor of Sevastopol said that civilian infrastructure near the headquarters was allegedly not damaged. According to him, "not even broken windows were detected". A fire was extinguished at the scene. 

The Russian Ministry of Defense said that air defense allegedly shot down five missiles and reported one dead soldier.

At the same time, the press service of the Strategic Communications Directorate of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine later confirmed the hit on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. 

\Subsequently, the head of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Kyrylo Budanov, said that at least 9 people were killed and 16 wounded in the Ukrainian attack on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. Among them are Russian generals.

In his commentary, Budanov refused to say which missile hit the enemy facility. Instead, Sky.

News, citing sources in the Ukrainian Air Force, wrote that Storm Shadow missiles provided to Ukraine by the United Kingdom were used in the attack on the Black Sea Fleet headquarters.

Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, suggested two options for the future of the Russian Black Sea Fleet: liquidation will be either voluntary or forced.
