After several hours of bombardment of positions of Russian forces in Crimea, the Russians began to withdraw from Crimea, reports Kyiv Post.

They report that Russian forces have put civilians living in Crimea at risk as well as their citizens who come on holiday vacation in Crimea after they captured it, by setting up their military bases in tourist spots and beaches where people gather.

According to the Ukrainian media, Russian citizens posted pictures from the beach in Crimea on social networks, and after the bombing of the Russian army position, they began to leave Crimea which caused the traffic jam at the borders.

Some Ukrainian media started making jokes and publishing footage of the traffic jam in front of the Crimean bridge, with the comment that “there will be no more pictures of bikinis on the beach in 2022.”

Anastasia Magazova a journalist from Crimea said on her Twitter account that she had never seen such joy from the Ukrainians on social media for a long time since the war started. 

President Vladimir Zelensky said that the war began with Crimea and must end with Crimea.

“The war against Ukraine and against all of free Europe began with Crimea and must end with Crimea – its liberation. Our peninsula, which has always been and will be one of the best places in Europe, Russia has turned into one of the most dangerous places in Europe. But we will return to the Ukrainian Crimea. From Kharkiv Oblast to Kherson, from Donetsk to Enerhodar, from Lugansk Station to Yalta, from Berdyansk to Novofedorivka – these are all parts of our country. “This is Ukraine, which will be completely free,” he said.

Attack on Novofedorivka Airbase in Crimea reported, large smoke clouds seen rising above the military base by locals.

Unconfirmed reports of up to 7 separate explosions were seen by the locals.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense informed the citizens that Crimea can not currently be a tourist destination as long as the occupying forces are there.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine would like to remind everyone that the presence of occupying troops on Ukrainian Crimea territory is incompatible with the high tourist season.”
