The explosions came a week after blasts at a Russian air base on the peninsula destroyed several fighter jets. A senior Ukrainian official said that an elite military unit was responsible for the latest attack.

It is reported by The New York Times, citing its own sources. 

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stated that the morning explosions near Jankoy were allegedly a result of activities of Ukrainian partisans.

"On the morning of August 16, as a result of sabotage, a military warehouse was damaged in the area of the Dzhankoy settlement".

A number of Ukrainian politicians hinted at Ukraine's involvement in the destruction of the enemy's arsenal.

The head of the President's Office, Andriy Yermak, wrote that such "demilitarization" by the Armed Forces of Ukraine will continue until Crimea is liberated.
