Russia's state news agency reported that there were no explosions at its base in Crimea - that was just the flagship Moskva testing its guns before pulling into port...

ROFL...

5 ( +10 / -5 )

Russia suffered a series of really big ammunition depot explosions in the past few years that were not combat related so it is entirely possible that poor safety practices led to the explosions. The US has had a few of these too. Hard to say not having been there to know if the Ukrainians shot anything at the base or not.

It could easily be Russian incompetence storing explosives because we haven't seen that before with the Russians, have we.?

Russia currently finding out. Hopefully more to come until the invaders go back home.

Russia doesn't know what happened? Doubtful, they just don't like that they've been infiltrated by Russian speaking Ukrainians multiple times with the ability to cause massive damage to their weapon stores.

OTOH, this all seems to be happening inside Ukraine, so it isn't like Russia has any business being there.

I suspect sabotage from Crimean's who don't support Russia's war. Not the silliest idea. But that's what the Russians are saying, so, yeah, it could be a stray ciggie.

Good! Do whatever is necessary to get the illegal Russian occupiers out of Ukraine.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said sarcastically on Facebook: “The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine cannot establish the cause of the fire, but once again recalls the rules of fire safety and the prohibition of smoking in unspecified places.”

A very sound warning from Ukraine’s Defense Ministry about the importance of following fire safety rules.

Russians have attacked military base in Crimea?like that Zaporozhie power station they have under own control?

I don’t think anyone is saying the Russians attacked the airbase in Crimea, are they? It was just a burning cigarette. Caused some damage though. Have you seen the pictures? Smoking is definitely hazardous for one’s health.

Just because you stole something doesn't mean it belongs to you

Crimea is Russia proper. Check the facts before posting.

Just wanted to know if same case,just trying to use your "logic"/irony off/

Any word about oil stopped by Ukraine for Czechia,Slovakia and Hungary/it happened 5 days ago but here no single info/by Zelenskyy gov?

Eastman, Zelensky personally offended a lots American,like the people of American owe him something for his bad policies,when he did not heed the warning,the more aid Biden give aid to Ukraine,and do not help them with their need, anything an American do for Ukrainain,they should show some kind of gratitude,not entitlement

Officials in Moscow have long warned Ukraine that any attack on Crimea would trigger massive retaliation, including strikes on “decision-making centers” in Kyiv.

Indeed. If Zelenski is now using US supplied long-range rockets to attack Russia proper, this is a major escalation. And those "decision-making centers" are staffed by American and other Western advisors who no business being there. Until now, Putin has kept the hardliners away who have been wanting to act much stronger much earlier.

But the American neoncon-neolibs just have to keep on poking the bear.
