Powerful combat work: Humeniuk revealed new details of the consequences of strikes on the occupants in Crimea
As a result of the attack on the occupiers' military facilities in the occupied Crimea on January 4, not only was the command post destroyed, but the enemy's defense system suffered very significant losses. In general, Ukrainian defenders carried out powerful combat work the day before.
Natalia Humeniuk, a spokesperson for the Southern Defense Forces, said this during a telethon on January 5. "Not only one command post was hit, but really powerful combat work took place over the past day, including serious damage to the defense system on the Crimean peninsula," she commented.
Humeniuk added that this is not the first defeat that has forced the enemy to seriously reformat its defense system.
"Now they are again experiencing the same hysteria with movement, trying to maneuver and locate both the defense systems themselves and the objects they are protecting in other places," she said.
According to her, the occupiers have recently relocated launch sites for the Shahed. Previously, they used to launch UAVs mainly from Cape Chauda (Leninsky district of Crimea, in the east of the peninsula), but in the last few powerful attacks, launches were recorded from near Balaklava (residential area of Sevastopol, southwest of Crimea).
"The Defense Forces have been working in this direction so that the enemy does not feel so safe in these territories and always remembers that Crimea is Ukraine and we are fighting for it," explained Humeniuk.
The spokesperson for the Southern Defense Forces added that the explosions near the Kerch Bridge are probably more of a smokescreen, "an attempt to protect this redundant configuration object."
"But still, the very concern and fears for its fate are not unfounded - our combat work continues, there are still many objects there that we need to work on. And we will definitely inform you about every powerful result, if it is worthy of announcement," said Natalia Humeniuk.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, explosions occurred around 4 pm on January 4 in Yevpatoriya and Sevastopol. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine confirmed the defeat of the enemy's command post, and the Russian Defense Ministry reported the alleged destruction of "ten Ukrainian missiles". The occupation authorities reported one casualty.
Prior to that, an alert was sounded in Crimea, and the invaders blocked the Crimean Bridge and the Chongar checkpoint, causing long traffic jams of civilian cars.
