A Russian military unit is on fire in the village of Azovske outside the town of Dzhankoy in Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea, Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, Refat Chubarov, said in a Facebook post on Aug. 16.

 “It is reported from the temporarily occupied Crimea: accurate firepower (was directed) on the military unit of the orcs (Russians) in the village of Qalay (now Azovske) of the Dzhankoy district,” he said.

Chubarov added that an ammunition depot had been hit, and “the sounds of the explosions are spreading far across the steppe.”
