Ukraine’s defence ministry says an explosion in the north of annexed Crimea has destroyed Russian missiles being transported by rail.

The Russian-installed head of the city of Dzhankoi said the area had been attacked by drones.

Ukraine announced the explosions but, as is normal, did not explicitly say it was behind the attack.

If confirmed, it would be a rare foray by Ukraine’s military into Crimea, which has been annexed since 2014.

Ukrainian defence intelligence said the “mysterious” explosions destroyed a Russian cruise missiles, intended for use by Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
