One person has been killed in a series of explosions that rocked a Russian military airfield in Crimea on Tuesday afternoon, the region’s governor has revealed. Five more people have sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident, according to Crimea’s health ministry.
Russia’s defense ministry earlier put the blasts down to an accidental detonation of ammunition and denied they had been caused by an enemy attack.
Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Crimea, who is at the Saki airfield, posted a video on his Telegram channel, saying that “unfortunately, now official information is coming in, unfortunately, we have one fatality.” The official pledged to issue updates on social media if and when more details are established.
Crimea’s health ministry, in turn, has confirmed that five people injured in the incident, including a child, have been hospitalized, with their condition being described as non-life-threatening.
