Seven killed in Ukrainian strike; Russia relocating submarines, UK says

A Ukrainian strike on a village in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine killed seven people on Tuesday, the TASS news agency reported, citing Russian-installed authorities in the region.

The agency said the strike hit the village of Krasnorichenske in part of the Luhansk region controlled by Russian forces.

Russia's Black Sea fleet has relocated some of its submarines from the port of Sevastopol in Crimea to Novorossiysk in Krasnodar Krai in southern Russia, the British military said on Tuesday.

The relocation is likely due to the recent change in the local security threat level in the face of increased Ukrainian long-range strike capability, the Defense Ministry said in its daily intelligence update on Twitter.

"In the last two months, the fleet headquarters and its main naval aviation airfield have been attacked," the Ministry added.
