Drone strikes show annexed Crimea not forgotten by Ukraine

 While the fury of conflict echoes across the eastern Donbas region, a very different war is being waged in Crimea: one of night-time explosions, sabotage and disinformation.

Reclaiming Crimea -- which Russia illegally annexed in 2014 -- may seem like an unlikely quest for Ukraine, but it is putting considerable effort into making Russia's occupation as uncomfortable as possible.

But this weekend's drone strikes -- reported by Russia on Sunday -- have just raised the stakes.
