Details: Krym.Realii reported an intense explosion in Sevastopol, which was heard even in remote parts of the city. Churches are circulating reports of a blood shortage for the wounded Russian military, urging people to sign up and donate blood.


Mikhail Razvozhayev, Russian-appointed sham "head" of Sevastopol, claimed that the explosions were supposedly related to Russian military drills.

The Crimean Wind Telegram channel initially reported an explosion on a Russian Buyan-M missile carrier and posted a video of the ship in smoke. The channel later denied this information: "We have received clearer photos – it is not a small missile ship, but a patrol ship of the 22160 project Vasily Bykov type. It is on an outer raid; it looks intact."

Updated: In a comment to Ukrainska Pravda, the Ukrainian Navy said it could not confirm the information regarding the explosion on the Buyan-M warship.
