Huge queues to leave Crimea as explosions spark terror ‘This is how the war came’

On Tuesday morning, an ammunition dump near Dzhankoi exploded, in an attack believed to be carried out by Ukrainian special forces.

Both Russian and Ukrainian officials acknowledged that the military target had exploded, but Ukraine has yet to claim responsibility for the hit.

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) said this morning (Wednesday) that smoke had been reported rising from near Gvardeyskoye Airbase, also in Crimea.

It said the two areas targeted “are home to two of the most important Russian military airfields” in the region, and that the rail junction “plays an important role in supplying Russia’s operations in southern Ukraine”.
