The Ukrainian Air Force carried out a successful attack against the Saky airbase in Russian-occupied Crimea, Air Force Commander General Mykola Oleshchuk said on Jan. 6.
This is the latest in a recent string of reports on successful hits against Russian positions on the peninsula. Ukrainian forces have recently upped their attacks in hopes of disrupting military logistics and weakening Russia's southern defenses.
The strike successfully took out a Russian command center, Oleshchuk noted.
"All targets have been destroyed!" he wrote on his Telegram channel.
"I again thank our pilots for great work!"
Local media outlets reported explosions on the occupied peninsula overnight on Jan. 5-6. Residents said they heard up to 10 blasts near the city of Yevpatoriia. Occupation authorities also reportedly shut down traffic on the Crimean Bridge.
The Russian Defense Ministry claimed its forces had intercepted four Ukrainian guided missiles flying over Crimea.
The Saky airbase is adjacent to the town of Novofedorivka, only some 20 kilometers southeast of Yevpatoriia.
