There were explosions near a Russian military airport in Crimea, a part of Ukraine that Russia has taken over.

Three local sources told the news agency that there were at least four explosions at the airport in Belbek, which is north of Sevastopol. Ukraine hasn’t said for sure that it was behind the attack, and the BBC can’t check the claim on its own.

The explosions came after a week of attacks on Russian military sites and equipment in Crimea. Ukraine has not said who was behind the attacks.

After one of these attacks, Ukraine’s defence minister, Oleksiy Reznikov, said that careless Russian soldiers might be to blame. He told his country’s troops not to “smoke in dangerous places.”

About the same time that Thursday’s attack was reported, Ukraine’s defence ministry tweeted, “Smoking kills.” This seemed to be a reference to Reznikov’s joking comments.

Russia has also said nothing about the attack on Thursday.

The governor of Sevastopol said that a Ukrainian drone was shot down by Russian anti-aircraft forces, but that no damage was done.
