Partisans damage vital railway supply route in occupied Crimea

On 21 June, partisans blew up a railway line in Stepove village in Russian-occupied Crimea, Babel reported, citing a source from Ukraine’s Intelligence. “There will be more in the future,” the source said.

Occupation authorities stated that the railway that connects the Kerch Strait Bridge and the Russian mainland to the rest of Crimea was damaged in an unspecified incident, but local residents said they heard a blast.

“Train traffic will be restored within two hours. Services are on site. There were no casualties,” Sergey Aksyonov, the Kremlin-installed head of Crimea, wrote on Telegram.

Earlier, four partisan rail attacks destroyed a railway Russia used to connect Crimea with its troops in occupied territories of Ukraine.
