Occupied Crimea was reportedly struck for the first time by Ukrainian forces using American Atacms missiles.

Ukrainian forces attacked a Russian air-defence unit in occupied Crimea with American Atacm missiles, wounding 17 troops, according to Russian sources.

The Ukrainian military later confirmed the strike on the Russian regiment near Olenivka, on the peninsula’s western coast, writes our reporter Joe Barnes.

Rybar, a pro-Russian military blogger, said that Kyiv had fired two Atacms missiles – which have a range of around 100 miles – in a nighttime strike around 3am on Monday morning.

Later it was reported that Ukraine’s Air Force jets known to carry Storm Shadow cruise missiles had been spotted.

“Given this, Crimea may come under attack again,” Rybar wrote on the Telegram messaging app.

The Telegraph could not immediately verify the claims.
