On the morning of April 21, explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol. Local residents reported that a column of smoke rose in the city, and the invaders traditionally reported that "everything was under control."

However, it later turned out that Ukrainian troops had hit another ship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. This was reported by Defense Express.

According to preliminary data, the strike could have damaged an enemy ship in Sukharna Bay. Ukrainian defenders could have attacked the rescue ship Kommuna and a large landing ship. In particular, OSINT blogger MT Anderson published satellite images that showed a Yamal landing ship in Sukharna Bay.

At the same time, the rescue vessel Kommuna was located near the quay wall next to Dokova Bay, 1.5 km to the west, alongside Russian warships, including two Project 1135 Burevestnik patrol vessels.

In a comment to Ukrainian media, Ukrainian Navy spokesman Dmytro Pletenchuk clarified that it was the Kommuna that was attacked by the defenders. He also added that the Ukrainian Navy was working to eliminate another enemy vessel.

Despite being more than 100 years old, the Kommuna rescue ship plays an important role in the enemy's capabilities on the Ukrainian peninsula. As part of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, it is the only rescue vessel designed for deep-sea operations, in particular, for raising submarines and sunken cargo. It was the Kommuna that the occupiers used to inspect the destroyed Moskva missile cruiser.

On the morning of April 21, it was loud again in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol in Crimea. The occupiers announced a missile threat on the peninsula, and the Kerch Bridge was blocked.

Earlier it was reported that on the night of April 17, explosions were heard in the city of Dzhankoy in the occupied Crimea. After that, a powerful fire broke out in the area of the military airfield.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on April 15, the Ukrainian Defense Forces destroyed a Russian command post with a missile strike in the temporarily occupied Crimea. The location was occupied by high-ranking Russian officers.
