Russia's FSB accuses Ukrainian operative of killing Darya Dugin in Moscow car bombing

Reports of explosions in the Crimean cities of Yevpatoria, and Saky, while Russian defences claim to have foiled an airborne attack on Sevastopol.


Social media has been buzzing this evening Sunday, August 21, with reports of alleged explosions in the Crimean cities of Yevpatoria, and Saky. It is believed that Russian air defence systems in and around the city of Sevastopol have foiled an attempted airborne attack on the region.

This has been reported by Ukrainska Pravda in English on its Twitter account @pravda_eng, as well as various other online breaking news sites in the region. It reported that explosions had been heard in the area around Sevastopol but that the Russian air defences seem to have shot down the incoming objects.

Pravda in English cited a Facebook post made today, Sunday, August 21, by the Ukrainian General Staff, which said that Russia plans to enforce a temporary closure of airspace from August 22–25 over the Oblasts of Lipetsk, Voronezh and Belgorod.

It reported shelling by the Russian military in and around Muravi and Zaliznyi Mist in Chernihiv Oblast, as well as in Budky and Iskryskivshchyna in Sumy Oblast of Ukraine.

The Russian occupying forces have advanced slightly on the Avdiivka and Pivdennyi Buh fronts according to the General Staff. They also reported that airstrikes had been carried out on targets near Staryi Saltiv and Husarivka.
