Drone targets Russian naval headquarters in Crimea

CLIP08/20/22

Russian authorities in Crimea acknowledged a drone targeted naval headquarters. The drone was suspected of being part of Ukraine’s new offensive deep in Russian-occupied territory. President Putin called Crimea Russia’s “holy land,” though the peninsula was illegally annexed in 2014. Since February, Russia has used the area as a staging ground to attack Ukraine, but now, Ukraine is pushing back, showing that no Russian military site is safe. President Zelenskyy predicts that Crimea will soon be liberated.
