Satellite Captures Results Of Ukrainian Drone Strike On Russia's Morozovsk Airfield

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Satellite images obtained from Planet Labs confirmed that the Morozovsk military airfield in Russia's Rostov region was hit by a Ukrainian drone attack.

That's according to The War Zone , Ukrinform reports.

“It's claimed that the operation was carried out via a mass drone attack. Ukrainian defense and intelligence units used at least 70 drones to strike the base Thursday,” the publication reports, referring to Kyrylo Budanov, head of Ukraine's Defense Intelligence Directorate.

The satellite images obtained from Planet Labs show the covering of the base's only multi-aircraft shelter, located on a maintenance apron, was blasted open, revealing two Su-34 Fullback fighter-bombers inside. These aircraft likely suffered some degree of damage, according to the publication.

This hangar would have been a top target for Ukrainian drones, the publication notes.

There were also claims that numerous explosions were heard near the base, where other combat aircraft were usually parked.

As reported, Morozovsk, Russia's Rostov region, reported an attack on the airfield where Su-34 and Su-24 aircraft involved in the bombing of Ukraine are deployed.
