The "authorities" in Crimea have confirmed explosions near Novofedorivka, where a Russian military airbase is located, with ambulances rushing to the scene.

That's according to the Telegram channel of the Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti, Ukrinform reports.

At the same time, the local single dispatch service clarified that, in addition to ambulances of the Saky district and Yevpatoria, emergency services are working in Novofedorivka.

Earlier, the media reported that, according to three local witnesses, they heard several loud explosions in the village and saw black smoke rising from the direction of a Russian military airbase. Smoke is visible on the beach in Yevpatoria, located 30 kilometers from Novofedorivka.

According to Telegram channels, the explosions occurred near the airfield of the Russian Armed Forces (the Saky military airfield is located in the village). Six to seven explosions were reported, with eyewitnesses saying they hear "something like the detonation of shells" every minute.

Residents of Crimea also reported explosions near the military airfield in the village of Novofedorivka.

On February 24, Russia began a new phase of its war against Ukraine – an all-out invasion. The invaders are shelling and bombing peaceful cities, towns and villages in Ukraine, killing the civilian population.
