On August 5, it was reported that more than 10 explosions thundered in the Khmelnytsky region. It is noted that most of the explosions occurred near the military airfield, which is located near the city of Starokonstantinov in the Khmelnytsky region.

Russian military personnel began to strike at critical Ukrainian infrastructure from October 10 last year. As the head of state Vladimir Putin noted then, this was a response to the terrorist actions of the Kyiv regime, in particular on the Crimean bridge.
