Russian fleet hit in Crimea

A drone attack on Sunday targeted the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, injuring five, said the governor of this city of the annexed peninsula of Crimea, Mikhail Razvojayev. “This morning, Ukrainian nationalists decided to spoil Russian Fleet Day for us” celebrated in Russia on Sunday, Mikhail Razvojayev wrote on Telegram.

He specified that a drone had landed in the courtyard of the staff of the Fleet and reported five injured among the employees of the staff. All festivities related to Russian Fleet Day “have been canceled for security reasons”, announced Mikhail Razvojayev, asking the inhabitants of Sevastopol not to leave their homes “if possible”.

Zelensky calls for evacuation of Donetsk region

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday evening called on the population to evacuate the Donetsk region in the east of the country, whose cities are the target of deadly bombardments, to escape “Russian terror”. “A government decision has been taken on the mandatory evacuation of the Donetsk region,” the Ukrainian president said. “Please evacuate,” he added in a video address.

“At this stage of the war, terror is Russia’s main weapon,” he said, as Russian strikes on cities in the region claim civilian casualties almost every day.
