Putin’s deranged army SMASHED by multiple new blasts in occupied Crimea

Posted on

VLADIMIR Putin’s army has been rocked by another series of attacks in occupied Crimea, including a large explosion at a military base.

Massive explosions and fires hit a military depot in Russia-annexed Crimea today, forcing the evacuation of more than 3,000 people as the Ukraine war rages on.

Russia sought to play down today’s blasts in the Dzhankoi district, which it said was linked to an electricity substation.

Officials in Putin’s puppet regional government later admitted a “detonation of ammunition” took place at a “temporary” Russian military site.

Sergei Aksyonov, Russia’s puppet Crimean leader, said that two civilians had been injured in the explosion.

Dzhankoi houses a large railway and road hub which is likely to be used as a major supply route to front lines in Ukraine’s southern Kherson region, analysts say.

It follows a devastating series of explosions at a Russian air base in Crimea last week that is said to have destroyed 20 jets and caused £1bn of damage.

According to Interfax, Russia’s defence ministry said: “In the morning of 16 August following an act of sabotage a military storage facility was damaged in the vicinity of the residential area Dzhankoy.”

It added how “a number of civilian facilities, including electricity transmission lines, railway and a number of private houses” were damaged but no one was severely injured.

Ukraine has stopped short of publicly claiming responsibility for any of the fires or explosions, including the attack last week that wiped out nine Russian planes.

  • Railway attacked in Kursk Oblast

    A railway line in Russia has been blown up, reports The Kyiv Independent.

    Those who committed the attack are yet to be identified.

    This comes as massive explosions and fires hit a military depot in Russia-annexed Crimea, forcing more than 3,000 people to evacuate.

  • Putin and Kim Jong-un set to unite pariah nations against the ‘hostile’ West

    Putin and Kim Jong-un have penned letters to each other, promising to unite their countries against the democratic West.

    The concerning kinship has stoked fear among security agencies who fear their alliance could result in disastrous consequences.

    In the letter, the pair promised to “expand the comprehensive and constructive bilateral relations with common efforts”.

    This comes just weeks after Kim took aim at the new government in Korea’s southern counterpart, warning he could “annihilate” President Yoon Suk Yeol.

  • Putin declares Russian weapons are ‘significantly superior’ to the West’s arsenal

    Russia’s despotic dictator has declared his country has superior weaponry to the West, as he attempts to court countries in Asia, Africa and South America.

    Speaking of Russian weapons, Putin said: “Many of them are years, or maybe decades ahead of their foreign counterparts, and in terms of tactical and technical characteristics they are significantly superior to them.”

    The Russian leader was speaking at an arms conference just outside of Moscow.

  • Russian army details ‘munitions explosion’ at Crimea depot

    Munitions exploded during a fire at an arms depot in Russian-annexed Crimea on Tuesday, the Russian defence ministry said.

    The ministry said the inferno began around 6:15 am local time (0315 GMT) at a military storage site near the village of Mayskoye in the Dzhankoi district.

    In a statement released through Russian news agencies, the ministry also said the fire likely caused ammunition to detonate.

  • Ministry of Defence provides the latest update on the war in Ukraine

    Britain’s MoD has released a new update on the situation in Ukraine.

    The report reads: “The surface vessels of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet continue to pursue an extremely defensive posture, with patrols generally limited to waters within sight of the Crimean coast.

    “This contrasts with heightened Russian naval activity in other seas, as is typical for this time of year.

    “The Black Sea Fleet continues to use long-range cruise missiles to support ground offensives but is currently struggling to exercise effective sea control. It has lost its flagship, MOSKVA; a significant portion of its naval aviation combat jets; & control of Snake Island.”

    The update concludes: “The Black Fleet’s currently limited effectiveness undermines Russia’s overall invasion strategy, in part because the amphibious threat to Odesa has now been largely neutralised. This means Ukraine can divert resources to press Russian ground forces elsewhere.”

  • Russian losses as of August 16

    As Putin’s brutal invasion of Ukraine continues, the country loses more troops and equipment by the day.

  • Explosions and fire hit military depot in Russian-annexed Crimea

    Massive explosions and fires hit a military depot in Russia-annexed Crimea on Tuesday, forcing the evacuation of more than 3,000 people.

    Russia blamed the blasts at an ammunition storage facility in Mayskoye on an act of sabotage without naming the perpetrators.

    As with last week’s explosions, they led to speculation that Ukrainian forces may have staged an attack on the peninsula, which Russia has controlled since 2014.

    Separately, the Russian business newspaper Kommersant quoted local residents as saying that plumes of black smoke also rose over an air base in Crimea’s Gvardeyskoye.

    Ukraine has stopped short of publicly claiming responsibility for any of the fires or explosions, including last week’s at another air base that destroyed nine Russian planes.

    Videos posted on social media showed thick plumes of smoke rising over raging flames in Mayskoye, and a series of explosions could be heard in the background.

    The Russian Defense Ministry said the fires at the depot caused damage to a power plant, power lines, rail tracks and some apartment buildings. It said in a statement that there were no serious injuries.

  • Putin’s allies mutiny as ‘panicked’ Moscow elite go ‘behind tyrant’s back’

    Putin’s allies are reportedly reaching out to the west in a desperate attempt to end the war in Ukraine.

    Russia‘s elite are increasingly panicked over the sanctions imposed on the country, and hope talks could end the war peacefully.

    A document believed to have been circulated around Western intelligence agencies and supposedly seen by The Mirror said: “A representative of Putin’s inner circle sent a signal about the desire to negotiate.

    “The mood of the Kremlin elite is panic.”

    While this Russian traitor has not been named, they have been described as a “pillar of the regime” in Russia.

    Another source told the Mirror: “It is often the case as happened in the closing stages of the Second World War that officials on a side concerned about their future make approaches to ensure it.”

  • Finland to drastically cut Russian tourist visas

    Finland will limit Russian tourist visas to 10 percent of current volumes as of September 1 due to rising discontent over Russian tourism amid the war in Ukraine, the government said Tuesday.

    “Tourist visas will not stop completely, but their number will be significantly reduced,” Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto told reporters in Helsinki.

    Tourist visas from neighbouring Russia will be limited by restricting the allotted opening hours for tourism visa applications, as an outright ban based on nationality is not possible, Haavisto said.

    “This means that other types of visas — visits to relatives, family contacts, work, study — will be given preference and more time,” the minister explained.

    Currently, Finland processes around 1,000 Russian visa applications a day, Haavisto told public broadcaster Yle separately.

    Finland will also look into establishing a specific humanitarian visa category, which the country currently lacks.

    “This could make the situation in certain circumstances much easier for journalists or NGO workers”, Haavisto said.

  • Russia says AUKUS could become political-military alliance

    Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said during a speech at the Moscow international security conference on Tuesday that the AUKUS bloc of Australia, the United Kingdom and United States had the potential to develop into “a political-military alliance”.

    It comes as Putin today said how Western countries were seeking to extend a “NATO-like system” into the Asia-Pacific region.

    “The situation in Ukraine shows that the US is trying to prolong this conflict. And they act in exactly the same way, fuelling the potential for conflict in Asia, Africa and Latin America,” Putin said in televised remarks, addressing the opening ceremony of a security conference in Moscow via videolink.

    “The American adventure in relation to Taiwan is not just a trip of an individual irresponsible politician, but part of a purposeful, conscious US strategy to destabilise and make chaotic the situation in the region and the world,” he added.

    He said the visit was a “brazen demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries and for its (Washington’s) international obligations”.

    “We see this as a carefully planned provocation,” Putin said.

  • Ukraine calls for new sanctions against Russia

    Ukraine called for new sanctions on Russia and warned about the consequences of catastrophe at Europe’s biggest nuclear plant, where fresh shelling nearby has renewed a blame game between both sides.

    The world nuclear watchdog has warned of disaster if the fighting does not stop. Ukrainian and Russian-installed officials have traded accusations over who is responsible for attacks close to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in southern Ukraine.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned Russian soldiers that if they attack the site in the now Russian-controlled city of Enerhodar, or use it as a base to shoot from, then they will become a “special target”.

    In his late Monday-night address, Zelenskiy sought a tougher world response on the Kremlin.

    “If through Russia’s actions a catastrophe occurs the consequences could hit those who for the moment are silent,” he said, calling for new sanctions on Russia’s nuclear sector.

    “If now the world does not show strength and decisiveness to defend one nuclear power station, it will mean that the world has lost.”

  • Ministry of Defence provides update on Ukraine conflict

    The British MoD has provided Brits with a new batch of information regarding Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine.

    The update said: “On 11 August 2022, Russian media reported that Denis Pushilin, head of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), had said that the date of a referendum on the DPR joining Russia will be announced after the DPR’s ‘complete liberation’.

    “Previously, in June 2022, investigative journalists published evidence of a DPR planning strategy for running such a referendum and for ensuring that at least 70 per cent of votes were in favour of joining Russia.

    “It is likely that Russia is in the advanced planning stages to hold a referendum, though it is unclear if the final decision to go ahead with a vote has yet been taken.

    “The Kremlin will likely see the military’s failure to occupy the entirety of Donetsk Oblast thus far as a setback for its maximalist objectives in Ukraine.”
