The explosions in the Dzhankoya area seriously disrupted the logistics of supplying weapons to the Russians – ISW

The explosions in the Dzhankoy district of occupied Crimea caused significant damage to Russian resources and seriously disrupted the logistics of supplying the occupiers.

About this declared analysts of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

“Russian troops used Dzhankoy as a railway hub to transfer troops and equipment to occupied settlements in the south of Zaporizhzhia region, including Melitopol”– explained in ISW.

Analysts noted that there is no indication that Ukraine used US-supplied weapons in the recent strikes on Crimea.

In one day, explosions rang out in Crimea in three places – a military journalistThe Colonel of the Armed Forces, former press secretary of the General Staff reported that in one day there were explosions at three military facilities in Crimea.

ISW believes that the recent “incidents” in Crimea are part of a consistent counteroffensive by Ukraine to regain control over the western bank of the Dnieper.

“Russian supply lines from Crimea directly support Russian forces on the mainland of Ukraine, in particular in the western part of the Kherson region. Ukraine’s targeting of Russian land lines of communication, rear and support assets in Crimea is consistent with Ukrainian countermeasures, which also target bridges across the Dnieper and Russian rear support elements in the occupied Kherson region.”the report says.

The end result of this campaign, according to analysts, will likely be to disrupt the ability of Russian forces to support mechanized forces on the west bank of the Dnieper and to protect them with air and artillery on the east bank from Ukrainian counterattacks.

It will be recalled that on August 16, in the village of Maiske near Dzhankoy in the occupied Crimea, explosions rang out at an ammunition warehouse.

The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the explosions were caused by sabotage.

Citing a source, The New York Times reported that responsibility for the explosion “is borne by an elite Ukrainian military unit operating behind enemy lines.”

In addition, according to unconfirmed media reports, several explosions occurred on the territory of the Russian military airbase in the village of Gvardiyskoe near Simferopol.
