Satellite images of the Kursk airfield after a drone attack by SBU counter-intelligence appear
Satellite imagery of the Kursk airfield after a drone attack by the Security Service of Ukraine's counterintelligence service has been posted online. They do not show any obvious damage or destroyed aircraft.
The photo was published by Tyler Rogoway, editor-in-chief of The War Zone. On 27 August, Ukrainian drones attacked a military airfield in Kursk.
It was reported that they had targeted five Russian aircraft, an S-300 radar and two Pantsir missiles.
However, according to Rogovey, no obvious damage was visible on the images.
"Examination of satellite images taken this morning of the Russian airbase in Kursk, which is likely to have been subjected to a massive drone attack, shows no obvious damage. There are no destroyed aircraft," Rogovey wrote.
Although, as he stressed, these images have yet to be analysed in detail. Therefore, there may still be damage.
"This is a superficial overview. Commercial satellite imagery has certain limitations. There may be small damage that does not cause secondary events, but there is no obvious large-scale damage," the journalist said.
It is worth noting that on the night of 27 August, several explosions occurred in the Russian city of Kursk. Eyewitnesses claimed that there were at least 13 of them.
In the morning, the Russian Ministry of Defence said that Russian air defence had shot down one drone, which crashed into a high-rise building, breaking windows in apartments on several floors.
However, our sources claim that this was not the end of the story. The Russians kept silent about the fact that the "cotton" visited a military airfield in Kursk.
Earlier, it was reported that up to 13 explosions occurred in Kursk last night. In the morning, the governor of the region announced that a UAV had hit a multi-storey building.
Russian journalists conducted an investigation and found that the drone did not reach the location of the electronic warfare brigade of the Russian Armed Forces within 300 metres.
It was also reported that on 20 August, an explosion occurred at the railway station in Kursk, with fragments of broken windows injuring five people. At the same time, airports in Moscow region were closed due to the threat of drone attacks.
