According to pro-Russian local authorities, the explosions on Tuesday left one dead and injured at an ammunition depot on the site of a military airfield on Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula.

The Russian army claimed that no shooting or bombardment had been the cause of these explosions, first reported by the authorities of this peninsula unilaterally attached to Russia in 2014 and on the front line in the Russian offensive against Ukraine launched on February 24.

The Ukrainian authorities have not officially acknowledged their responsibility for the explosions in Crimea. But an adviser to the presidency, Mikhaïlo Podoliak, said on Twitter on Tuesday that they were not only the beginning.
