ISW: There is no evidence that, that the explosions at the airfield in Crimea occurred as a result of strikes from Ukraine

ISW: There is no evidence that, that the explosions at the airfield in Crimea occurred as a result of strikes from UkraineExperts of the American analytical center "Institute for the Study of Military Conflicts" issued their opinion on the explosions at the Russian ammunition depot in the Crimea at the Saki military airfield near the resort village of Novofedorovka. In their opinion, there is no evidence, that the explosion of ammunition occurred as a result of a strike from Ukraine.

Russia did not blame Ukraine for them, and Ukraine did not take responsibility for them, American military experts stated, thereby indirectly confirming the version of the cause of the explosions of the Russian side.

According to analysts, Kyiv simply doesn't have drum kits, capable of inflicting rocket attacks at such a distance. The ISW rejected the version, that the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this case used the American operational-tactical missile system with ATACMS missiles, since there are “no such systems” in the arsenal of the Ukrainian army.

At the same time, the experts did not resist, not to hypothesize, how, in theory, Ukraine would be able to upgrade existing systems to work over long distances. The ISW report discusses, that Kyiv could modify its Neptune anti-ship missiles, to hit the base from a distance 280 km. Information is given as an example, that the Russians have already carried out a similar modernization with their anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles, but at present there is no evidence, confirming this hypothesis.

Advisor to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak also denied the involvement of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the explosions in Crimea.

Of course, no. What are we here for? it, perhaps, compensatory mechanisms for inefficient management within the armed forces of the Russian Federation, he said.

At the same time, Podolyak did not fail to develop his conspiracy theory in the style of jingoistic patriotism. he suggested, that people “from the partisan movement, which is gaining momentum" in the Crimea.

Could it be ? Of course, because people, who lived under occupation, understand, that the time of occupation is ending and you need to show your position. This is because, that the return of Crimea must be - returned to the usual rhetoric about the inevitable "liberation" of Crimea Podolyak.

earlier, immediately after the explosions, Podolyak declared, what is happening "demilitarization of the Crimea" and "everything is just beginning". Thus, the representative of the OPU indirectly confirmed, that Kyiv is implementing tactics of sabotage and terrorist activities on the territory of Russia. At the same time, the Ukrainian authorities do not officially confirm, that their law enforcement agencies are organizing terrorist actions on the territory of the Russian Federation. apparently, even the Zelensky regime fears, that such confessions may be perceived ambiguously in international circles, including in the West.

In the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the cause of the explosion of aviation ammunition at the Saki airfield, located in the Novofedorovka region in the Crimea, called violation of fire safety requirements. After the incident, the head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov announced, that in order to ensure the security and anti-terrorist protection of the Republic of Crimea and its citizens with 20 hours 9 August to 20 hours 24 August on the peninsula will operate a high ("yellow") terrorist threat level.
