Saboteurs allegedly poisoned and killed 35 Russian soldiers in Crimea

Two saboteurs poisoned 35 Russian servicemen in Simferopol in Crimea. More than 20 of them died in the hospital, the Russian Telegram channel Kremlievskaya Tabakerka wrote.

“According to military sources” of the channel, “two nice girls” came to the checkpoint of the military unit and introduced themselves as local residents. They brought seven bottles of vodka and some snacks – fish, sausage, bread, cheese. They told the guards that they wanted to thank soldiers for protecting them.

The guards took vodka and food, drank with their colleagues, and ate. The alcohol and products that the saboteurs brought contained huge doses of arsenic and strychnine. 24 soldiers were allegedly killed, and eleven more were hospitalized.

So far, the saboteurs could not be found.

According to the Ukrainian Main Directorate of Intelligence, another sabotage occurred in Russian-occupied Melitopol on 1 December 2023. The resistance forces reportedly effectively neutralized several Russian occupiers and inflicted damage on an enemy fuel tanker, rendering military machinery inoperable.
