Ukraine believes partisans were behind the explosions at a Russian air base in Crimea.
Senior Ukrainian officials speculated that partisan saboteurs may have been behind a string of explosions at a Russian air base in Crimea. At the same time, Kiev denied involvement if it occurred deep within Russian-occupied territory.
The president of Ukraine’s advisor also stated that the explosions on Tuesday may have resulted from Russian negligence. According to the Crimean health department. Russia seized, wounded eight people, and killed one civilian.
Videos from Crimea, a popular tourist area for Russians, were shared on social media and showed enormous clouds of smoke.
Russia took the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and served as one of the bases for its invasion in February.
When the Dozhd online television program questioned whether Kyiv was to blame, Mykhailo Podolyak responded: “Obviously not. What connection do we have to this?”
People who are living under occupation are aware that it is ending, according to Podolyak.
At least 12 explosions, according to witnesses, were caused by the detonation of munitions that had been stored, not by an assault, according to Moscow.
In his daily video address on Tuesday, Zelenskiy did not specifically reference the explosions but said that it was appropriate that attention was being paid to Crimea.
He reiterated his government’s stance that Crimea would have to be restored to Ukraine, saying, “We will never give it up. The Black Sea area cannot be secure while Crimea is occupied.”
