Partisans rise up against Putin “There is a real panic”

As a result of Ukrainian attacks, the majority of Russian warships had to be withdrawn from their base in Sevastopol, according to a report by  German news website This was only possible with internal support.

The report suggests that the Ukrainian attacks were successful partly because members of the Russian navy were willing to provide information about the exact positions of the warships. A representative of the Ukrainian military partisan movement and the Crimean Tatars told the Kyiv Post that Ukraine is now planning attacks on ships in Novorossiysk. “There is real panic in the enemy’s ranks,” according to the partisan spokesperson. Russia suspects “that new attacks on its fleet are imminent and they are trying to save it,” but the partisans believe these efforts will not be successful.

It is important to note that these claims have not yet been independently verified or confirmed. Therefore, they should be viewed with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflict parties to deliberately spread misinformation to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
