Reuters: Four explosions near a military airport in Crimea

At least four explosions rocked the city of Sevastopoulos, in Russian-annexed Crimea.

According to sources cited by Reuters, the explosions occurred in the area of ​​Belbek military airport north of Sevastopol.

Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhayev said, citing personal information, that Russian air defenses had shot down a Ukrainian drone and claimed that no damage had been caused and no injuries had been reported.

Videos that have come to light show flashes in the night sky and explosions being heard. Reuters emphasizes that it is unable to verify the authenticity of the visual material.

It is recalled that Ukraine had threatened yesterday Wednesday to demolish the Kerch bridge, which was built by Moscow to connect Russia with the Crimean peninsula, where in recent days there have been several explosions at Russian military bases.

Earlier today, two Russian villages near the border with Ukraine were evacuated after a fire broke out at an ammunition depot.

“An ammunition depot caught fire near the village of Timonovo” (which is less than 50 kilometers from the Ukrainian border) in Belgorod province, regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said.

There were no casualties, but for precautionary reasons the residents of Timonovo and the neighboring village of Soloti were “moved to a safe distance”, according to Gladkov, who added that the causes of the fire are being investigated.
