On Friday night, November 10, explosions rocked occupied Crimea as the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine's defense ministry conducted a special operation. 

Intelligence operatives targeted two Russian fast landing boats in the town of Chornomorske in the western part of the occupied peninsula, Rubryka reports.

According to reports from the Ukrainian national broadcaster Suspilne and the Telegram channel "Crimean Wind," the explosions were also reported in several other locations in Crimea, including near an oil depot in the city of Feodosia.

In Chornomorske, locals reported "four or five impacts, possibly near the border post." One resident mentioned a strike at the barracks in Chornomorske, with emergency responders rushing to the scene.

Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defense claims that Russian forces destroyed two drones over Crimea on the night of November 10. A third drone was reportedly downed over the Tula Oblast off Russia.

Sources told Suspilne the operation was carried out by the Ukrainian Defense Intelligence (HUR). The HUR later confirmed the information to Fakty News.


Chornomorske is a coastal town on the western edge of Crimea on the Tarkhankut Peninsula. It is just 70 kilometers away from the occupied part of the Kherson region across the Karkinitska Bay.

On November 4, Ukrainian Air Force pilots successfully struck targets in Kerch, hitting one of the most modern Russian Black Sea Fleet ships, the missile carrier "Askold."

Later, images surfaced online showing the destroyed Russian missile carrier "Askold" on the premises of the Zaliv plant in the occupied Crimea.
