Attacks by Ukraine's armed supporters on military bases in Russian-occupied Crimea have added to its concerns and challenges. Concerned about the continuing attacks, Russia recalled Igor Osipov, the commander of the Black Sea Fleet based in Crimea, and replaced Viktor Sokolov. According to a statement issued by Britain's Defense Intelligence on Wednesday, "the deteriorating security situation in Crimea may be a cause for concern for Russian troops." Russia has also described the attack on the ammunition depot in Crimea's Dzhankoi in the past as the work of armed supporters of Ukraine. A week earlier, nine Russian fighter jets were destroyed in an attack on another military base in Crimea. Meanwhile, Denis Pushilin, the leader of Donsk, controlled by pro-Russian separatists, has sought help from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to restore projects in the region. North Korea has also indicated that it may send its workers to Donesk.
