Missile Fragments in Crimea 4 Dead, Dozens Injured

Russia shot down Ukrainian missiles over Sevastopol, resulting in at least four fatalities and numerous injuries, according to Kremlin officials.

The mayor of the city, Mikhail Razhayev, who was appointed in Russia, stated on Telegram that 82 people were hospitalized and that two children were among the deceased.

35 medical experts were being brought to the city, he said afterwards, to “assess the condition of the victims and evaluate the need and possibility of transporting patients.”

According to him, the Russian Investigative Committee has also launched a criminal investigation into the event, and it will be looked into as a potential terrorist act.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, Kyiv fired five missiles with cluster warheads supplied by the United States on Sunday near Sevastopol. It stated that four of the missiles were intercepted and that the fifth exploded in midair, showering bystanders with shrapnel.

“All flight missions for the American ATACMS operational-tactical missiles are entered by American specialists based on U.S.’ own satellite reconnaissance data,” the statement reads on Telegram, blaming the hit on the United States.

“Therefore, responsibility for the deliberate missile attack on civilians in Sevastopol lies primarily with Washington, which supplied these weapons to Ukraine, as well as the Kyiv regime, from whose territory this attack was launched.”

It was declared by the ministry that “such actions will not go unanswered.”

Razhayev announced that Monday has been designated as Sevastopol’s day of morning and that all of the city’s entertainment events have been canceled.

Crimea, which Russia unlawfully acquired from Ukraine in 2014, is where Sevastopol is situated.

According to the U.S. State Department, since Russia invaded the European country in February 2022, the United States has provided Kyiv with more than $50 billion in military assistance, making it the country that has supported Ukraine the most in its fight against the Kremlin.

Because of concerns about the conflict getting worse, the US had prohibited Ukraine from using its weapons on Russian soil.

However, US President Joe Biden granted Kyiv’s forces permission to use the deadly assistance in limited strikes against military targets on Kremlin ground late last month.
