There is unrest in temporarily occupied Sevastopol. As a result of yesterday's large-scale fire that broke out at an oil depot near Kozacha Bay, 10 oil tanks with a total capacity of about 40,000 tons were destroyed by fire. In this regard, panicked rumors about the inability of Russian air defense to ensure the safety of its own strategic facilities spread through the city. In turn, sensing the beginning of the so-called "hot holiday season" in the temporarily occupied Crimea, Russian servicemen began to write vacation reports, which indicate the places where it will be held on the territory of continental Russia.
It should be noted that this oil base supplied fuel to ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, which launched missile strikes on peaceful cities of Ukraine.
