One person was killed and many others were injured in an explosion that struck a crimean military camp, and Russian media is blaming saboteurs.
Following the thunderous explosions, vacationers rushed from a nearby beach as a massive mushroom cloud rose.
The head editor of the Russian news outlet RT, Margarita Simonyan, tweeted on Tuesday that sabotage, not an airstrike by the Ukrainian military, was to blame for the explosions.
These assertions have been challenged, though, as Ukraine is said to have claimed credit for the strike.
According to a military spokesperson from Kyiv, the strike was carried out by the country’s armed forces.
Huge plumes of smoke could be seen on the video, and a dozen explosions of various power could be heard.
Social media in Ukraine was ablaze with rumors that it had been struck by long-range missiles from the nation.
According to a military officer in Kiev, the strike was carried out by the country’s armed forces, as reported by the New York Times.
At the airfield, 200 miles from the battle lines, Russian jets were thought to have been the target of a group of saboteurs.
However, an unnamed source from the military ministry was reported by Russia’s official news agency Tass as stating that no jets were destroyed and the explosions were caused by a breach of fire safety regulations.
According to authorities, if Russia attacks Europe’s largest nuclear power facility, it might result in a serious nuclear calamity.
A terrible catastrophe akin to Chernobyl might ensue from the despot’s efforts, according to the chairman of Ukraine’s state nuclear power corporation Energoatom.
Following firing at the facility, Petro Kotin demanded on Monday that the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station be declared a military-free zone and warned of the possibility of a Chernobyl-style nuclear accident.
He demanded the deployment of a team of peacekeepers at the scene in remarks made on television after Russia and Ukraine both claimed responsibility for attacking the nuclear power facility.
