On Sunday, May 21, several explosions occurred in occupied Berdiansk (Zaporizhzhia region). Local residents report that "it was so loud that they could hear it even in the villages of the district."

"Yes, it was loud at 4 am. In the village of Osypenko, it was also heard well. A rocket whistled, it was very clear, and then 2 explosions. We thought it was somewhere in the village, it was very loud," eyewitnesses wrote in public.

A local collaborator, Vladimir Rogov, said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled the town with British Storm Shadow missiles. "This morning, Ukrainian militants attempted to launch a missile attack on Berdiansk. A total of seven missiles were fired, four of which, according to preliminary data, were Storm Shadow and three false decoy targets to overwhelm our air defense," Rogov said.

Meanwhile, the Center for Strategic Communications of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports on social media that as a result of a night strike, the Defense Forces hit the headquarters of one of the occupiers' units in Berdiansk.



As a reminder, on the morning of May 18, the occupiers reported that a railway line had been blown up in the Russian-occupied Crimea in the Simferopol district. As a result, 8 cars of a freight train derailed.
