In the temporarily occupied Crimea, a series of explosions occurred during the night near several settlements.

Local media reports, in particular, a strike on a Russian military unit near Yevpatoria.

The Crimean Wind Telegram channel, citing video and photos from eyewitnesses, reported that a large fire had been going on at a military facility of the Russian invaders in the village of Vityno.

According to the Telegram channel, after the explosions heard by the locals, ambulances were moving towards the settlement.

Later, it turned out that the long-range space communication center in the village of Vityne, whose full name is the 40th separate command and measurement complex as part of the Titov Main Test and Space Systems Control Centre of the Russian Aerospace Forces (military unit #81415), was hit. This facility was seized by the Russians during the annexation of Crimea.

NASA’s interactive satellite fire map FIRMS recorded a fire on the territory of this Russian military unit.

OSINT researchers of the CyberBoroshno Telegram channel found out that at least one Krasukha electronic warfare system was located on the territory of this facility, designed to cover command posts and other important Russian facilities.

From a military unit near Yevpatoriia, the Russians control the orbital grouping of their spacecraft. In particular, they provide the GLONASS navigation system and space monitoring.

Previously, the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched a missile attack on the positions of the Russian S-400 Triumf air defense system in the temporarily occupied Crimea.

The strike took place on the night of June 11-12, and hit a position located almost 2.5 kilometers from the village of Verkhniosadove, Bakhchysarai district.

Satellite images show that the 92H6 radar station, a tractor with a BAZ-6306 “Voshchyna” generator, and a 51P6 launcher were destroyed by the fire.

The weakening of Russian air defense on the temporarily occupied territory increases the chances of Ukrainian missile strikes on the invaders’ military facilities.
