The NYT, had a major article, on June 6th, entitled ,”Guerilla Attacks Signal Rising Resistance to Russian Occupation,” which had quotes from Ukrainian-American scholar, Alexander Motyl, and a hyperlink to a piece by Motyl, https://www.19fortyfive.com/2022/05/putins-nightmare-a-ukrainian-guerrilla-movement-has-emerged/?fbclid=IwAR3Blta-0f4kOOeivQqCYO63NVlH1yq8k1MYpPWut-Bv_-vih_7rDVtfePo
with significant information about a # of attacks carried out by a shadowy group of Partisans, called Berdyansk Partisan Army . Besides what is contained in the article by Motyl, keep up with more recent propaganda from this Partisan group, via their Telegram channel, https://t.me/brdprotiv
From you first link: "It is, of course, possible that Ukrainian special forces may have been involved in some of these actions." That article does not mention Spetznaz. The Wikipedia article on Ukrainian Special Forces, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_forces_of_Ukraine, notes

"On 10 August 2016 Russia accused the Special Forces of Ukraine of conducting a raid near the Crimea town of Armyansk which killed 2 Russian servicemen; the government of Ukraine denied any involvement."

Based on their training, equipment and funding, it's more than possible, it's likely, that Spetznaz is involved in the Crimea actions.
