      Agree yes that Al urina.

      But in fact, the state of emergency, in the TG channels, assumptions are made about where the UAV came from:

      To the question of where the drone could have been launched from that tried to attack the Shaikovka airfield and how it could fly 200 km from the Russian-Ukrainian border.

      In fact, it is not at all necessary that this drone was launched from the territory of Ukraine. If our guess about the use of a drone from Skyeye (or its analogues) is correct, then it could have been launched at all in the immediate vicinity of the airfield.

      These UAVs, although large in size, are completely collapsible and fit in a case carried by a car or carried by a couple of people, which is not a big problem in conditions of an insufficiently controlled border. But we will say more - such UAVs are freely sold on AliExpress. This allows you to simply order the delivery of the drone directly to Russia to the place of the future sabotage, where you can equip it with explosives and launch it using vertical takeoff.

      Thus, there is no critical need for Ukrainian saboteurs to launch their makeshift kamikaze drones from Ukrainian territory and fly hundreds of kilometers, at the risk of being detected and shot down in advance. They can order a delivery of a drone, launch it near the target and hit it, thereby reducing the reaction and detection time, and then quickly leave, as happened quite recently in the Crimea.

        Remember, on the day of the Navy, they dropped a bomb on the headquarters of the fleet in Sevastopol? They were caught, 2 teenagers 15 and 17 years old. They arrived with their parents shortly before from Kyiv. So, they were 2 kilometers from the headquarters.

    Wherever it flew from, if this is a real photo, where is the protection of each aircraft: a hangar, earthen redoubts, where is the disguise?

      Therefore, 2 Tu-22M3 aircraft were destroyed, but they don’t talk about it, we have no losses, just miracles .. UAVs fly in, explode and there are no losses ... It seems that enemy information is more trustworthy than ours ....

      What is surprising here, we still have not realized that our country has entered a full-fledged war, we still live by the patterns of peacetime, but the world has changed and there will never be a return, it's time to clearly understand everyone without any exception.

    Parcels with drones from Ali Express do not come to the Urals? Tying up explosives and launching a drone towards the airfield is already trifles.
