Ukrainian officials used blasts that hit a Russian military base as fodder to boost Ukraine’s morale as its forces stepped up a counteroffensive to reverse Moscow’s territorial gains in over five months of war.
Ukrainian officials hailed the blasts as a symbolic blow to Russia’s control of the area, but declined to claim responsibility. Kyiv has vowed to liberate the peninsula that Moscow annexed in 2014. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a speech late Tuesday that the war in Crimea has begun and will not end until it is retaken.
