About it informs Command of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, commenting on the information of the invaders about the alleged attack by a Ukrainian drone on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, which took place on July 31 – the Day of the Russian Navy.
“In fact, the enemy did not dare to spend the day of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, and in order not to disgrace himself before the whole world, fearing the Armed Forces of Ukraine, he came up with a reason to cancel the events on the occasion of the so-called holiday. With such statements, the enemy recognizes his air defense as incapable and casts even greater doubt on the existence of the Crimean bridge, ”the message says.
The Command of the Ukrainian Navy reminded that the Defense Forces of Ukraine are carrying out activities to liberate the Ukrainian occupied territories, using the available weapons for this.
“Our targets are exclusively military facilities of the Russian Federation. We do not strike on the territory of the Russian Federation. Crimea is Ukraine,” the Ukrainian Navy stressed.
In turn, the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov did not rule outthat the “attack” on the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation was arranged by the Russian occupiers themselves.
In his opinion, this was done for the purpose of “a convenient reason for canceling events dedicated to the day of the Russian Navy, the “festivity” of which would have looked doubtful after the destruction in April 2022 by the Armed Forces of Ukraine of the largest flagship warship of the Russian fleet, the Moskva” ; — further escalation of Russian military operations against Ukraine.”
“In this case, Russian society should prepare for a series of explosions of residential buildings in Russian cities similar to those carried out by the FSB of the Russian Federation in September 1999 in Buynaksk, Moscow and Volgodonsk,” Chubarov believes.
As reported, on the morning of July 31, when Russia celebrates the Day of the Russian Navy, the occupiers announced the attack of the Ukrainian drone on the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol, as a result of which six people were injured. Later, the press service of the fleet reported that an explosive device mounted on a makeshift drone went off at the headquarters. All festive events in honor of the Russian Navy Day have been canceled for security reasons.
At 4 am on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct full-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine are rebuffing the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kyiv in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military is committing thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity throughout Ukraine.
