The August explosions at a Russian air base in Crimea were the result of a Ukrainian attack. This was confirmed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Valery Zaluzhny via Ukraine’s state news agency on Wednesday. UK info.
On August 9, several explosions occurred at a Russian air base in Crimea. The peninsula captured by Russia in 2014 was at that time about 200 kilometers behind the front line in southern Ukraine. It was uncertain whether Ukraine had the military resources to launch an offensive yet behind the front line.
The explosions severely damaged Russian combat aircraft and the runway. Ukraine remained ambiguous about the cause, and Russia reported that the aircraft’s munitions had exploded. New York times infer on the basis of satellite images That there must be an attack.
A week later, another explosion occurred, this time at an army depot in the north of Crimea. Until then, Ukraine remained silent and asserted that it had not launched any attack.
Zalogny now writes that the explosions were the result of missiles fired by Ukraine. He did not go into more detail about the attacks in his article. It is still unknown from where the missiles were launched.
The Ukrainian commander-in-chief described the explosions in Crimea as a “successful implementation of the plan to bring the fighting closer to Russia.”
