An attack on the leadership of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea… and the continued bombing of southern Ukraine

Russia announced that a drone attack on the leadership of its fleet in the Black Sea in the Crimea resulted in the injury of six people, and while Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that his country would guarantee the security of its borders, pointing out that its fleet would confront anyone who threatens its security, the authorities reported in The city of Mykolaiv in southern Ukraine has faced the heaviest Russian bombing since the beginning of the war.

In detail, the governor of Sebastopol, Mikhail Razvozgayev, said in a message via the Telegram application, yesterday, “Sunday morning, the Ukrainian nationalists decided to spoil the holiday of the Russian fleet” that Russia celebrates.

He pointed out that an attack by a drone targeted the command of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sebastopol yesterday, wounding six people.

Razvozgayev said that all celebrations of the Russian Fleet Day “have been canceled for security reasons”, urging the residents of Sebastopol not to leave their homes “if possible”.

This is the first time that the Russian authorities have reported an attack of this kind since the start of its war in Ukraine on February 24.

For its part, the Ukrainian authorities denied any connection to this unprecedented attack, describing the Russian accusations as “deliberate provocations”. “The liberation of the occupied Ukrainian Crimean peninsula will happen in another, more effective way,” Odessa regional administration spokesman Sergey Prachuk said in a statement.

These developments came as Russian President Vladimir Putin announced yesterday, while attending a naval parade in Saint Petersburg (northwest), that the Russian fleet will receive “in the coming months” a new hypersonic cruise missile “Zircon” that “does not face any obstacles.”

In his speech on the occasion of the Russian Navy’s Day yesterday, Putin stressed that his country will guarantee the security of its borders, pointing out that its fleet will confront anyone who threatens its security. He said: “We will ensure the security of our borders steadily and by all means, and the fleet is ready to confront all those who threaten our security, and is ready for all operations and missions entrusted to it.”

“We have unparalleled naval missiles in the world, and our navy is highly efficient,” he added.

He added that the Zircon hypersonic cruise missiles will join the Russian Navy within a few months and their deployment areas will be based on Russian interests, describing the Zircon hypersonic missiles as unique.

He pointed out that “there are no limits to the capabilities of Zircon missiles, and we will continue to explore various marine technologies.”

Putin also clarified that “the delivery of these (missiles) to the Russian armed forces will begin in the coming months. The frigate of Admiral Gorshkov will be the first to embark on a combat mission with these formidable weapons on board,” he stressed, stressing that “the main thing here is the ability of the Russian Navy… It is able to respond with lightning speed to anyone who decides to infringe on our sovereignty and freedom.”

He stressed that “it is our duty to protect the Russian Federation,” revealing that he had signed a new maritime doctrine, the details of which have not yet been published.

In southern Ukraine, the authorities announced that Mykolaev was subjected to Russian shelling yesterday, probably the “heaviest” since the start of the war in February, which led to the deaths of at least two people.

The city’s mayor, Oleksandr Senkevich, said “strong explosions” were heard twice during the night from Saturday to Sunday. The region’s governor, Vitaly Kim, also noted that at least two civilians were killed.

Shelling also targeted the Kharkiv (east) and Sumy (northeast) regions.

On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on the residents of Donetsk to evacuate to avoid “Russian terrorism” and the bombing of this region in the east of the country, a large part of which Russia controls.

In a video recording, Zelensky said “a government decision was taken to compulsorily evacuate” the area, considering that “at this stage of the war, terrorism is Russia’s main weapon.”

First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk announced the mandatory evacuation of all residents of Donetsk, one of the two administrative regions of the Donbass Basin.

According to the estimates of the Ukrainian authorities, at least 200,000 civilians still live in the non-Russian-occupied areas of Donetsk.
