Background:
On the afternoon of August 9, explosions shook the military airfield at Novofedorivka in the Saky district of Russian-occupied Crimea. Sergey Aksyonov, the so-called and Russian-appointed "Chief of Crimea," reported that one person had been killed and six injured.
The Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that nobody fired at the Saky airfield in Crimea, but for some reason ammunition exploded. Later, a source in Russia's Defense Ministry told TASS that the explosions were caused by a "fire safety violation."
The Defense Ministry of Ukraine said it was not known what caused the explosions and subsequent fire at Saky airfield near Novofedorivka.
The New York Times quoted a "senior Ukrainian military official with knowledge of the situation" as saying that Ukrainian forces were behind the blast at the airbase.
Mykhailo Podoliak, senior adviser to the Ukrainian president, said that Kyiv was not involved in the explosions at the Novofedorivka airfield, but added that Ukrainian partisans could be behind the blast.
