“Losses from Ukraine’s recent attack on the Russian air defense system in Crimea are visible in new high-resolution satellite images,” he explained.
The first image, taken by the Planet project on August 28, shows several equipped positions of Russian air defense launchers.
The second photo, which was taken on September 14, captured the moment the launchers began to be redeployed from their previous positions, one of which was literally burned out.
The attack on Russian air defense batteries in the Yevpatoriya area was carried out on the night of September 14. Sources LIGA.net reported that this was a counterintelligence operation of the SBU and the Navy, which resulted in the destruction of the S-400 Triumph air defense system worth $1.2 billion: drones and Neptune missiles worked on the target.
- On the night of September 13, 2023, Russian military facilities in Sevastopol were attacked using allegedly 10 Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG missiles.
- Arrived at the ship repair yard: the Minsk landing ship and one of the six submarines of the Russian Black Sea Fleet were damaged there – the diesel-electric Rostov-on-Don of Project 636 Varshavyanka, a carrier of Caliber cruise missiles, launched in 2014.
- Defense Express writes that this was the first ever use of cruise missiles to destroy a submarine in history – and immediately effective.
