Russia bolsters Crimea’s defense

Russian military is strengthening the defense of the temporarily occupied Crimea. The invaders are moving anti-aircraft defenses to Simferopol. In addition, new defense structures are being built, the National Resistance Center (NRC) reported.

“Thanks to the information from the Crimean resistance movement, the Russian military received new orders to increase the defense capability of the occupiers on the peninsula. In particular, the transfer of air defense equipment to Simferopol was recorded. Also, partisans recorded the construction of new fortifications, the so-called “dragon’s teeth,” the NRC explained.

Simultaneously, the occupiers are trying to appease the Russians in Crimea. The invaders distributed another “waste paper, in the form of the so-called newspaper “Krymskaya Pravda” (“Crimean Truth”), the NRC informed previously.

“The peculiarity of the copy is that it mentions less about the course of the war. … There are only a few notes in the newspaper about the ability of the Russian army to keep the occupied territory under its control allegedly. It is also separately emphasized that the Ukrainian counteroffensive is unsuccessful, to avoid any discontent,” the National Resistance Center said.

It was reported previously that the Russians are evacuating the personnel from the barracks of the diving center of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, the Atesh partisan movement said.
