Crimea ammunition depot explodes; Ukraine drone strike.

An explosion has occurred at an ammunition depot in the Russian-occupied Crimea region of Ukraine.

On April 22, major news organizations reported that the head of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, said in a telegram that an explosion at an ammunition depot in the Krasnovardiske region of Crimea was caused by a Ukrainian drone strike.

He also said that so far, there have been no casualties from the explosion.

Residents within a five-kilometer radius of the blast have been ordered to evacuate, and rail traffic in Crimea has been suspended.

Crimea was also hit by an explosion followed by a fire at a military training center in the Kirovsk region on April 19, forcing residents to evacuate and closing a major highway.

At the time, Russia said the ammunition depot exploded in a nighttime airstrike by Ukraine, which Ukraine also recognized as an attack.

Ukraine responded with more Russian airstrikes later in the day.

“Some grain storage facilities and industrial facilities in the southern regions were damaged and destroyed,” Ukraine’s Special Communications and Information Protection Service said.

Russia claimed that villages along its border with Ukraine were hit by Ukrainian cluster bombs.

“Ukrainian forces fired 21 artillery shells and three cluster bombs towards the village of Zhuravlevka in Belogod,” said Vyacheslav Gladkov, 카지노사이트넷 governor of Russia’s western Belgorod Oblast, referring to a Ukrainian attack the previous day.
