AN EXPLOSION has rocked a Russian airbase in Crimea as horrified tourists watched from a nearby beach.
The blast comes just hours after Putin’s humiliated troops were forced to pull out of a key occupied city in Ukraine.
The cause of the explosion, which sent sparks and plumes of smoke into the air, is currently unknown.
But according to the Russian-appointed head of occupied Sevastopol, “an emergency situation occurred at the Belbek airfield.”, The Kyiv Independent reports.
The Belbek military airfield is located near occupied Sevastopol.
Back in august the Saki airbase was also attacked sending a huge mushroom cloud into the sky.
There was speculation the facility had been hit by ukrainien missiles in the nation’s first strike.
Shocking footage shows the aftermath of the explosions that ravaged a Su-24M attack aircraft and a string of vehicles at the military base.
The motors were completely charred by the ensuing flames that followed the series of blasts at around 3.30pm local time.
