The Russian proxy head in occupied Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, claimed on July 24 that Ukrainian drones caused an explosion at an ammunition depot in the peninsula's Dzhankoi region.

Aksyonov claimed that 11 drones were shot down by the peninsula's air defense, with debris damaging a home in the Kirovske district. He said inhabitants of villages within 5 km of the explosion have been evacuated.

The railway in the Dzhankoi region and the Dzhankoi-Simferopol highway are closed to traffic, he added.

Kyiv has yet to comment on the accusation. The Kyiv Independent could not independently verify Aksyonov's claim.

Two days earlier, on July 22, the Ukrainian military confirmed it had attacked an oil depot and Russian military warehouses in Russian-occupied Crimea. Explosions were reported in Crimea earlier in the day. A series of videos surfaced on social media where pillars of smoke could be seen rising from several locations, including near railway tracks.
