Russian Authorities In Crimea Claim To Have Shot Down Two Drones

RUSSIA

Mikhail Razvozhayev, the internationally non-recognised governor of Sevastopol has reportedly claimed that Crimean air defence systems have shot down two Ukrainian drones.

  • Shannon Vavra at the Daily Beast: "There is a drone attack right now in Sevastopol in Crimea, according to the Russia-installed governor of Sevastopol: "Air defense forces are working...All forces and services are on alert...Please keep calm."
  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky maintained this week that taking back territories annexed by Russia in 2014, including Crimea, are preconditions to negotiating an end to the war.
  • Zelensky said to the Bloomberg New Economy Forum: “A simple ceasefire won’t do the trick. Unless we liberate our whole territory, we will not bring peace.”
  • Ukraine Deputy Defense Minister Volodymyr Havrylov said this week that "Ukrainian forces could be back in Crimea by the end of December and the entire war with Russia will be over by the spring."
  • Zelensky advisor Andriy Yermak walked back the Havrylov remarks at the Halifax Security Forum: "It sounds as if this phrase by the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine is a dream."
  • The last time Russia reported Ukrainian attacks on Crimea, in October, Moscow suspended participation in the Black Sea Grain initiative.
