After residents of Kerch began to express concern in local media, one of the websites reported that the sounds of gunshots could be heard from the training ground, where "exercises are being conducted at a military unit on the way out of the city."

The Kerch occupation administration did not report any training taking place on the territory of the city and its surroundings.

Since August, the sounds of explosions have been heard almost every day in Crimea and Sevastopol. The Russian authorities explain this by claiming the gunshots are targeted at "Ukrainian drones" and that it’s "the work of the air defence system".
