An explosion was heard near Armyansk in northern Crimea near the Perekop Isthmus on Feb. 16, local independent Telegram channel Crimean Wind reported on Feb. 16.

The explosion happened near a military base, the channel said.

"An explosion was reported at one of the military bases in Armyansk. In any case it couldn't be the 'air defence working,'" the message reads.

Pictures and video of the explosion were published on Telegram channels. In one video, a large white mushroom cloud can be seen rising into the sky.

There are no official comments about the cause of the explosion yet. The Kremlin's puppet authorities in Crimea haven't commented on the incident either.

On Feb. 12, the Ukrainian guerrillas asked Crimean residents to inform them about places where the invaders’ personnel and equipment were concentrated, and the locations of repair bases.
