This happened when explosions were also heard across the border in Russia’s Krasnodar and Rostov regions.

As Ukraine strikes back, Russia faces increasing attacks on its own territory.

Kiev took no direct responsibility for the three apparent attacks.

Ukraine is said to have used UK-made Storm Shadows in the attacks – weapons that have been described as “game changers”.

Attacks were also reported on Tokmak and Vasylivka, both in the Zaporizhia region occupied by Putin.

Berdyansk – a major Russian-held port and resort on the Sea of ​​Azov – was hit by a massive blast.

Local residents reported several violent explosions from an alleged arms depot.

A pro-Russian official in the occupied Zapirizhia region said: “Berdyansk is under fire from the Kiev regime.

“Explosions were heard on the outskirts of Berdyansk. First aiders are on site.

“The circumstances are currently being clarified,” said a spokesman.

It was unclear whether the wave of nighttime attacks – seen on dramatic video – represented the start of a counteroffensive or a shift in strategy by Ukraine.

In Krasnodar, the local crisis center denied there were any casualties.

“At 04:17 Moscow time, an explosion was heard near a building on Morskaya Street … First responders were dispatched to the area.

“According to preliminary information, no one was injured.

“The building’s roof and windows were damaged, but no fire broke out.”

The city’s mayor, Yevgeny Naumov, said “an office building and a block of flats” were damaged.

“The cause of the incident is currently being clarified. I appeal to the residents to keep calm.”

In the Rostov region, air defense forces said they shot down a Ukrainian missile.

According to reports, there was an attack on a Russian military airfield in Morozovsk

War blogger Anatoly Shariy, who has over a million followers, said: “The impression is that infrastructure and headquarters are being dismantled.”

“As if before something [bigger].”

Storm Shadow air-launched cruise missiles can reach speeds of up to 600 miles per hour and blast targets up to 350 miles away.

That means the guns could hit a target at maximum range in just 35 minutes – almost half the length of the UK.

US military officials called the missile “a real game changer from a range perspective.”

The devastating missile costs £790,000 and has built-in guidance systems to help spot enemies.

They are designed to hit well-defended static targets such as installations, bunkers, and bridges.

The weapon functions like a dive bomber.

It hovers low over land before shooting high into the sky and then plummeting towards its target from a near-vertical angle.
