Ukraine's air force has said nine Russian warplanes were destroyed by explosions that rocked an airbase in Russia-annexed Crimea on Tuesday (Aug 9).

The blasts, which Russia says were caused by detonations of stored ammunition, killed one person and wounded 14 others, according to the Black Sea peninsula's governor.

China has accused the United States of being the "main instigator" of the Ukraine crisis, saying Washington's "ultimate goal is to exhaust and crush Russia".

Russian control of Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is "endangering the region", the G7 bloc of nations says.

Foreign ministers from the G7 group of nations say Russia must immediately hand back control of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant to Ukraine.

They accused Moscow's forces of putting the entire region in danger.

The facility and its surrounding area saw shelling last week, which Russia and Ukraine blamed on each other.
