Sounds of explosions were heard in the Russian-occupied Ukrainian city of Sevastopol in Crimea on the morning of March 18, a local pro-Russian Telegram channel reported on March 18.

In particular, explosions were heard from the Korabelna (Naval) side of the city.

Furthermore, local residents reported the sounds of gunfire in the nearby town of Inkerman.

Mikhail Razvozhayev, the Russian-appointed occupation governor of Sevastopol, said that there was no need for people to be alarmed, as the sounds were from shooting training at a firing range.

On March 18, the occupation authorities celebrate the day of the “reunification” of Crimea with Russia, so the panicked mood of the residents regarding the explosions echoed with the reports about this “date.”

“People, what’s blasting? It’s too early for a salute!” the ChP Sevastopol Telegram channel wrote.

Smoke was visible near the village of Perevalne in the Simferopol district of the temporarily occupied Crimea on March 17, where the coastal defense brigade of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is stationed. The smoke was spotted after an explosion was heard.
