Atesh, a Ukrainian-Crimean Tatar partisan movement, revealed the unrepaired wreckage of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet HQ in occupied Sevastopol, struck by Ukraine in September.
“The guardhouse continues operations, and soldiers stand watch seaside by the damaged headquarters, where some parts still function. The bombed-out Black Sea Fleet HQ symbolizes that Russia’s military will be defeated and Crimea liberated,” the partisans wrote on Telegram.
In a daring 22 September aerial attack on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet headquarters in occupied Sevastopol, Ukraine utilized drones and missiles in a meticulously planned two-stage operation.
