Ukraine says it hit 2 Russian targets in Crimea

Ukraine said Thursday it struck a Russian command post near the Crimean port city of Sevastopol and also hit a military unit in a separate strike on the peninsula.

Air Force Commander Mykola Oleshchuk posted a video from social media on the Telegram messaging app that showed smoke rising from an explosion near Sevastopol, thanking pilots for their work.

He also published a screenshot of a social media post saying that a Russian military base in the city of Yevpatoria had been hit in a strike.

Russia reported that it had shot down ten guided missiles over the peninsula and foiled a "terrorist attack" by Kyiv's forces.

One person was wounded after shrapnel fell on a house, Sevastopol's Russian-installed governor Mikhail Razvozhayev said.
