Occupants' oil depot and ammunition warehouses destroyed: AFU StratCom officially confirmed strikes in Crimea
The Ukrainian Defense Forces have destroyed an oil depot and enemy warehouses in temporarily occupied Crimea. The strikes hit military targets near Oktyabrsky in Krasnohvardiysky district on July, 22.
The strike was officially confirmed by the Strategic Communications Department of the Office of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It also showed how ammunition detonated at the warehouse.
"The defense forces have destroyed an oil depot and warehouses of the Russian army in temporarily occupied Oktyabrsky (Krasnogvardeysky district of Crimea). Glory to the Armed forces of Ukraine!" -the message says.
There they also posted a video of the aftermath of the attacks on the oil depot and warehouses. The footage clearly shows the powerful detonation of ammunition at the ammunition depot and Russian occupants in military trucks fleeing away from the explosions.
We will remind that in the morning of July, 22 occupational authorities of Crimea claimed the "drone attack on infrastructure facilities", which allegedly resulted in neither destruction nor casualties.
However, the official statements of the occupants were contradicted by eyewitness testimonies and videos shot by Crimeans with powerful fires and sounds of explosions at the sites of the strikes. Detonation, according to subscribers of the "Krymsky Veter" public group, can be heard even in neighboring districts, which are Dzhankoy and Nizhnegorsk. One of the Crimeans said that the cannonade allegedly reached Kerch, located 180 km away from Oktyabrsky.
Russian propagandists began to spread information that the attack on the warehouses in Crimea was carried out with the help of British Storm Shadow missiles.
Later it turned out that one of the largest airfields of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, where the invaders placed a huge ammunition warehouse is located near the village of Oktyabrskoye in Krasnogvardeysky district, which became the epicenter of the strike. A large oil depot in the same area was also destroyed.
Subsequently, the strike was confirmed by the Crimean "gauleiter" Sergey Aksyonov, who issued the beginning of evacuation of the population within a radius of 5 km from the airbase, while continuing to assure that "there are no destructions and casualties".
In addition, the invaders were forced to stop the work of the railroad on the peninsula.
