(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 11 – The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has published a video with a message following the attack on the air base in Crimea: “Unless they want an uncomfortably hot summer break, we recommend to our esteemed Russian guests not to visit the Ukrainian Crimea. Because no amount of sunscreen will protect them from the dangerous effects of smoking in unauthorized areas. “
The Ukrainian Defense Ministry two days ago denied that Kiev forces attacked the Russian air base of Saki, in the Crimea.
The video, with soundtrack from Bananarama’s Cruel Summer, lists a number of summer vacation spots Russian tourists to Crimea could have chosen and warns that it would be a big mistake to decide to go on vacation to Ukraine.
He then cuts social media footage of the August 9 blasts together along with clips of tourists fleeing the beaches and crying in the aftermath.
The reference to “smoking in unauthorized areas” refers to the explanation by the Russian authorities that the explosions at the Crimean air base, which appear to have destroyed some Russian warplanes, were caused by an accidental fire at the base. (HANDLE).
