Ukraine is not involved in the explosions at a military airfield in the village of Novofedorovka in Russian-occupied Crimea. About it on the air of the TV channel “Rain” Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said.
“Of course not. What do we have to do with it? These are, perhaps, compensatory mechanisms for ineffective management within the armed forces of the Russian Federation,” Podolyak said, answering the question whether Kyiv takes responsibility for the explosions on the Ukrainian peninsula.
According to him, the causes of the explosions could be both the detonation of ammunition, as they say in the Russian Defense Ministry, and “bungling” in the Russian army.
“Could it be someone from the partisan movement, which is gaining momentum? Of course, because the people who lived in the occupation understand that the time of the occupation is ending and you need to show your position. This is because the return [оккупированного Крыма] must be,” Podolyak stressed.
On Twitter, an adviser to the head of the Presidential Office stated that the demilitarization of the Russian Federation is an integral part of ensuring global security, and noted that “everything is just beginning.”
