Video: Huge clouds of smoke over Russian city

According to reports by the Russian news agency RIA, a fire broke out near the airport and not far from an oil storage facility in the Black Sea city of Sochi.

It is not clear what caused the fire, how the German news platform reports. A video of the Russian news channel “Marsh” published on Telegram (for the video click here), shows a considerable column of smoke over the city. It is reported that explosions were heard before the fire broke out.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
