Kyiv has increased attacks on the Black Sea peninsula, which was seized by Moscow in 2014, and earlier this year, it initiated a counterstrike against Russian forces.

British-supplied Storm Shadows consist of a range of over 250 kilometres, which is almost 155 miles that sanction Kyiv to attack targets behind the leading edges in the east and south of Ukraine.

The Russian-installed governor of Sevastopol added to remark that one person was injured from falling debris.

Furthermore, the statement has come out that Ukraine allegedly launched two US ARACMS missiles, which fell across the western coast of Crimea near the village of Olenivka.

Notably, Rybar extended his thankfulness for the earlier measures that had been taken, as there was no serious damage. However, the Russian forces were unable to down the missiles.
