MOSCOW (Reuters) – One person was killed by a blast at a military airbase at Saky in the Russian-controlled Crimean peninsula on Tuesday, the Russian head of Crimea’s administration, Sergei Aksyonov, said on social media.
The Moscow defence ministry said earlier that the explosion had been a detonation of aviation ammunition, not the result of any attack.
Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
