In social networks, people write that there have already been more than ten explosions. 20 km from Novofedorivka, “windows are shaking and car alarms are going off.”
One blast, described by witnesses as the loudest of all, triggered two more plumes of smoke and dust. In the nearby town of Saky, sirens blared. Witnesses have reported a large number of ambulances driving towards the scene.
The Russians have already officially confirmed the fact of “several explosions in the Novofedorivka area”, but do not provide details.
The so-called “head” of Crimea, Serhiy Aksyonov, said that he had gone to the scene of the incident and was investigating the circumstances.
