Drone explosion hits Russian Black Sea Fleet HQ

There was no immediate information on where the drone began its flight; Sevastopol lies about 100 miles south of the Ukrainian mainland, and Russian forces control much of the continental area along the Black Sea.

Fighting continued elsewhere in Ukraine. The mayor of the main port city of Mykolaiv, Vitaliy Kim, said the shelling killed one of Ukraine’s richest men, Oleksiy Vadatursky, and his wife. Vadatursky ran a grain production and export business.

In the Sumy region of northern Ukraine, near the Russian border, shelling killed one person, the regional administration said.

Three people have died in attacks over the past day in the Donetsk region, which is partly under the control of Russian separatist forces, Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said.

Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said on Twitter on Sunday that footage from a prison where at least 53 Ukrainian POWs died in an explosion on Friday indicated the blast came from inside the Olenivka building. , which is under Russian control. .

Russian officials claimed the building was attacked by Ukraine in an effort to silence prisoners of war who could give information about Ukrainian military operations.

Satellite photos taken before and after the attack show that a small square building in the middle of the Olenivka prison complex was demolished, its roof shattered.

Podolyak said these images and the lack of damage to adjacent structures showed the building had not been attacked from the air or by artillery and argued the evidence was consistent with a hyperbaric bomb set off inside .
