    Putin visits Crimea for the ninth anniversary of annexation

    Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Crimea, which celebrates the ninth anniversary of its annexation by Moscow on Saturday.

    The Russian president has been to the Art School and the Korsun children’s center in Chersonese, on the outskirts of the port of Sevastopol, the main Russian base on the Black Sea.

    The visit comes after the International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for alleged war crimes in Ukraine, against the Russian president for the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children, an unprecedented step, being the first time that this court asks to detain a head of state still in the exercise of his position.

    In addition, it does so on a day in which there have been explosions in Sevastopol, Crimea. They were reported this morning by local Telegram channels and the news was broadcast by the Ukrainian media.

    the governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, has explained on social networks that it was a “military training” in one of the sites of the city. Yesterday the Crimean Wind Telegram channel had reported another explosion in the Simferopolis district of Crimea, where the coastal defense brigade of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is located.

    The Crimean peninsula has been under Russian occupation since 2014, following a referendum with which Moscow intended to annex the territory without international recognition.

    Several attacks in recent months have occurred on the Russian-occupied peninsula: in October, a powerful explosion on the Kerch bridge linking crimea with Russia caused the collapse of part of the structure. The highway was inaugurated in 2020 by the president Vladimir Putin.
