Claims have been made on social media that the fire struck Skadovsk, a port city on the Black Sea in Ukraine’s Kherson region. A Twitter user shared images which appeared to show smoke and helicopters in the air nearby. MilitaryLand.net, a blog focused on the war, tweeted from its account: “Locals report several explosions in the vicinity of occupied Skadovsk, Kherson Oblast.

Fellow Twitter user, Special Kherson Cat, said: “Local residents report a fire near Skadovsk, Kherson region. It’s not known for sure if this was the result of shelling or just a fire due to the summer heat. But Russian helicopters are showing a clear interest to it.”

Express.co.uk has not been able to independently verify the claims.
