Commentary of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine

“Regarding the fire on the territory of the airfield “Saki” in the area of ​​the settlement of Novofedorivka in Crimea, temporarily occupied by Russia.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine cannot establish the cause of the fire, but once again reminds of the rules of fire safety and the prohibition of smoking in unspecified places.
The fact of a fire can be used by a terrorist country in an information war. We do not rule out that the occupiers will “accidentally” find some characteristic “chevron”, “business card” or even “DNA”.
Please note that cotton clothing is very hygienic.
Keep calm and believe in the Armed Forces of Ukraine!”
