Ukraine mocks Russia after explosions at Crimean airbase

Ukrainian officials used the explosions that hit a Russian military base to boost Ukraine’s morale as its forces stepped up a counteroffensive to reverse Moscow’s territorial gains in more than five months of war.

Ukrainian officials hailed the blasts as a symbolic blow to Russia’s grip on the region, but did not claim responsibility. Kyiv has vowed to liberate the peninsula, which Moscow annexed in 2014. Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky said in a speech on Tuesday evening that the war had begun in Crimea and would not end until it was resumed.
