Moscow has accused Kyiv of launching a missile attack on Crimea, damaging two Russian naval vessels and injuring 24 people. The attack took place just hours before Russian President Vladimir Putin met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, drawing media attention and speculation about a growing relationship between Moscow and Pyongyang. The governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, claimed that the Ukrainian missile attack targeted a non-civilian facility in the port city, which is home to Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. The Russian defense ministry stated that Ukraine had launched a missile strike on a shipyard in Sevastopol, resulting in damage to Russian vessels. Kyiv has not yet commented on the allegations. Meanwhile, Ukraine continues its counteroffensive against Russia, reporting successes on both the southern and eastern fronts. However, Western officials have expressed concerns about the progress of the conflict, with some suggesting the need for an off-ramp and potential negotiations with Moscow.
