Ukraine 'hits major Russian air base in fresh strike' trends now
Ukraine is suspected to have struck a major Russian air base in Yeysk after massive explosions, in yet another attack deep behind Moscow's frontlines.
Russian war channel Rybar admitted a hit on Telegram, claiming it was by a Ukrainian long range Tu-141 Strizh drone.
Ukrainian sources also claimed the strike at the military airfield in Krasnodar region, and a picture appeared to show an explosion. 'Residents assume that it could even be missiles hitting the airfield,' said one account.
Russian officials have denied a strike but locals reported two loud explosions.
Then black smoke was seen billowing from the airfield which is a base for strike aircraft used against Ukraine in Vladimir Putin's war.
