The so-called Governor of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvojayev said on his social media account, "The enemy launched a missile attack on the navy headquarters. A fragment fell near the Lunacharskiy Theater."

Sharing the information that all emergency services were dispatched to the scene, Razvojayev stated that studies on the casualties are ongoing.

Calling on the public to calm down, Razvojayev asked them not to share photos and videos of the scene on social media.

In a second statement, Razvojayev announced that there may be a new missile attack and called on citizens not to come to the city center and not to leave their buildings.

Russia illegally annexed Crimea and Sevastopol from Ukraine in 2014.
