At the enemy's Belbek airfield near Sevastopol in the occupied Crimea, 10 Russian servicemen joined the ranks of the "bicentennial" as a result of a missile attack on January 31. Among those eliminated is the commander of the fighter regiment's aviation squadron, Alexander Tatarenko.

Such data, obtained from sources, was shared by the Telegram channel "Dossier of a Spy". The anonymous author believes that seven British-French-made Storm Shadow or SCALP surface-to-air cruise missiles were launched toward the Russian invaders' airfield.

Four were allegedly shot down by Russian air defense. Three hit the target. 10 servicemen of the aggressor country were killed.

"Between 17:31 and 17:42, two missiles hit the command post of the 38th Fighter Aviation Regiment (military unit 80159, Belbek). Another hit the airfield's communications center," the post reads.

The Telegram channel has not received confirmation of the damage to the aircraft. "Perhaps some aircraft suffered collateral damage, but no more," the author suggested.

He also noted that during the attack, cruise missiles flew along new routes – this time (unlike the previous ones), most of them passed over the water surface of the Black Sea. The air defense work on the CR took place directly over the airfield itself.
