In his latest message to the population of Ukraine, the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, urged his people to stay away from the Russian military installations after the latest explosions in the Crimean region. The message also extends to the separatist areas of Donbas, in addition to the Kharkov region.

“Please do not go near the military installations of the Russian army and all those places where they store ammunition and equipment, where they have their headquarters!” said the top Ukrainian leader and also warning his people to be “very careful” in a recent speech.

This message was especially pertinent to those living in “Crimea, in other regions of southern Ukraine, in the occupied territories of Donbass and in the Kharkiv region”.

The Ukrainian military is continuing their attacks on Russian fuel depots in Crimea, while the message from the Kremlin remains that the United States is prolonging the war by suppling Ukraine with arms.

Zelenskyy has also warned the world of the daily threat posed by Russian forces who have been bombing the largest nuclear power plant in the country for over a week. So far the radiation censors around the plant have not shown any signs of a possible nuclear increase.

A strategy that, according to Zelensky, seeks to end the war, which is now approaching 200 days (174 today). “The fewer opportunities the occupiers have to do evil and kill Ukrainians, the sooner we can end this war by liberating our country,” said the leader as the war wages on and intensifies in some populated areas.

Explosions in Crimea

This past Tuesday, the region's authorities reported an explosion at the ammunition depot of a Russian military base, in the Dzhankoi district. A situation similar to the one that occurred a week ago, when a Russian airfield was bombed causing two people to be injured (one by shrapnel and the other by a falling wall).

So far, more than 3,000 people have had to be evacuated from the Maiskoye and Azovskoye settlements, according to the Governor of Crimea, Sergei Aknesov. “They have been housed in various temporary accommodation centers, mainly in schools
