Russian ammo depot is blown up in massive explosion in Crimea.

MASSIVE explosions as a Russian ammunition depo was destroyed in Crimea this morning, with Russia blaming the incident on "sabotage".

The footage was obtained from a number of sources including the Office of Strategic Communications (StratCom) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ukraine's Chernihiv Regional Territorial Center Of Recruitment And Social Support, as well as from Oleksiy Goncharenko, 41, a Ukrainian Member of Parliament.

The incident has also been confirmed by the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) who said that a fire caused the blasts in the Dzhankoi area, before later saying that the incident was the result of "sabotage".

The footage shows the ammunition depot exploding near the village of Azovske in the Dzhankoi Raion, in north-eastern Crimea. Crimea is part of Ukraine but was illegally annexed by Russia in 2014.
