Elite Ukrainian forces behind attack on weapons store in Crimea

Sky News has learned that Ukrainian special forces were involved in an attack on a military base located there.

Russia’s defense ministry stated that an explosion at a temporary ammunition storage unit in north Crimea’s Dzhankoi at 4.15am BST (6.15am EST) caused a fire.

Photographs show smoke and fire rising into the sky from the weapon store in Maiske, near the village of Maiske, at the beginning of Tuesday.

Sky News believes that the strikes were carried out by Ukrainian special forces who were operating within the territory. This territory was annexed in 2014 by Russia.

This attack was carried out by “saboteurs” from Russia, as it happened after Russia had accused Ukraine of the incident.

Sky News correspondent Alistair Bunkall in Odesa said that “I think it is clear that there are at least one, if not two, Ukrainian special forces groups operating in Crimea with Ukraine sympathisers to disrupt Russian operations.”

Russian state media reported two injuries from the blasts in the north of the peninsula. Trains were also disrupted.

Sergei Aksyonov (Russia’s top official in Crimea) said that around 3,000 people were evacuated from their homes.

In Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy calls on international leaders for Russian forces to be expelled from the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. He claims that the Kremlin is engaged in nuclear terrorism.
