Russia had previously denied any of its aircraft were damaged in the blast at Saki airbase in Western Crimea, a poucos quilômetros de praias populares entre os visitantes russos.

The suspected Ukrainian attack left at least one person dead, até 20 aviões destruídos, e ao redor $1 bilhões de danos, de acordo com Anton Gerashchenko, advisor to Ukraine’s Minister of Internal Affairs.

Na quarta-feira, um clipe supostamente tirado da base revelou o restos queimados de um caça russo de £ 19 milhões destruído na base.

Russia has again denied that any aircraft were damaged in the blastseven refusing to acknowledge that any attack had taken placebizarrely putting the incident down to an accident caused by an aircraft engine fire.

But photos of the base published by US satellite imaging company Planet Labs show the extent of the destruction at the base, com pelo menos sete caças completamente obliterados.

Swathes of scorched earth at the base also appear to show a series of blasts.

At least three large craters can be seen next to jet ammunition storage buildings, showing that the attack may be far worse than the Kremlin has previously admitted.

One way to interpret those craters is precise strikes from a long-range munition,” Elliot Higgins from investigative agency Bellingcat reported.

He added that there wereno impacts visible that look like they could be misses, so either they used very accurate weapons or they got very lucky”.

Autoridades em Kyiv até agora não chegaram a reivindicar diretamente a responsabilidade pelo ataque – but confirmed at least nine planes had been destroyed and mocked Russia’s explanation that the fire could have been down to a careless smoker.

In a sarcastic Facebook post, the ministry said itcannot establish the cause of the fire, but once again recalls the rules of fire safety and the prohibition of smoking in unspecified places”.

Ukraine’s defence ministry later responded to the deadly blast with a video trolling Russians for visiting the beaches in Crimea, que Russia illegally annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

In a clip shared on its official Twitter account, it joked that the Russians could have visited Dubai, Peru, or Cuba, instead of the disputed territory, after dramatic images showed a mushroom cloud rising in the background next to a packed beach.

Tourists were seen fleeing in panic and even crying as plumes of smoke rose over the nearby coastline.

Imagens de um resort próximo mostram dezenas de edifícios com janelas estouradas, while Crimean authorities say at least 250 as pessoas foram removidas de suas casas para acomodações temporárias.

Filas de vários quilômetros de russos em fuga foram fotografadas cruzando a principal fronteira entre a Crimeia e a Rússia.

But Russian authorities have downplayed the explosions, claiming that no hotels or beaches in Crimea have been affected in the peninsula popular with tourists from Russia.

A base aérea de Saki foi usada como base para inúmeros ataques no sudeste da Ucrânia.

It is some 125 miles from the nearest Ukrainian position, beyond the range of most of the country’s long-range munitionsincluding the infamous US-provided Himars rocket launchers, which can reach targets up to 50 a milhas de distância.

ATACMS, a type of missile used in the Himars, can travel up to 190 milhas, but the US has insisted that none have been delivered yet.

This suggests they may have struck the base with anti-ship missiles supplied by the West.

The attack has also been put down to possible pro-Ukrainian guerillas working in Crimea.

Russia has demanded Ukraine recognise Crimea as its territory before any ceasefire is agreed.

Hours after the attack, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky declared that the guerra could not end until the liberation of Crimea.

It came just hours before at least eight blasts were reported in neighbouring Bielo-Rússia at the Zyabrovka airbase, used regularly by Russian military aircraft.

Bielo-Rússia – a close ally of Moscowhas also downplayed the reports of explosions on Wednesday night, with the country’s defence ministry putting them down to an engine fire.

The base is around 30km (18 milhas) from the Belarus-Ukraine border.

Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko permitted Coloque em‘s troops into his country months before the war broke out.
