Russian cruise missiles destroyed in Crimea blast, Ukraine says:
Russian “Kalibr” cruise missiles were destroyed in an explosion as they were being transported by train to Russia’s Black Sea fleet in annexed Crimea, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said Monday evening.
Ukrainian authorities stopped short of taking responsibility for the attack but said the strike should prompt Russia to leave the Black Sea peninsula it illegally stole from Ukraine in 2014.
“Right now, the way ahead (for Russian forces in Crimea) is clear — they need to make their way out by rail already,” said Natalia Humeniuk, spokesperson for Ukraine’s southern operational command.
Missiles carried by rail were destroyed by an explosion in Dzhankoi, a key railroad junction in the Crimea peninsula, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said late Monday.
The agency implied that Kyiv was behind the attack, saying the action furthers “the process of Russia’s demilitarization, and prepares the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea for de-occupation.”
The missiles, designed to be launched from surface ships in Russia’s Black Sea fleet, had a range of over 1,550 miles on land and 233 miles at sea, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said. --->READ MORE HERE

Quote: "An explosion in the city of Dzhankoi in the north of the temporarily occupied Crimea destroyed Russian cruise missiles Kalibr during their transport by railway."
Details: The intelligence service stated that "mysterious ‘cotton’ [Russian propaganda, initially refusing to use the word ‘vzryv’ (explosion), used ‘khlopok’ (a bang) instead. However, ‘khlopok’ also means ‘cotton’, and this has since become a meme - ed.] continues the process of Russia's demilitarisation and prepares the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea for liberation."
Previously, Crimeans wrote about a series of explosions they heard in Dzhankoi on social media. There were rumours that a drone had been shot down.
Reference: Kalibr – missiles designed for launching from surface ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The range of damage is more than 2,500 kilometres against land targets and 375 kilometres against sea targets. --->READ MORE HERE
