Four military transport aircraft Il-76 damaged in Pskov as a result of an attack by enemy UAVs

Seven Russian regions at once were attacked by enemy drones last night. The Ministry of Defense reported downed and suppressed UAVs in the sky over the Oryol, Bryansk, Kaluga, Ryazan and Moscow regions.

Kaluga Governor Vladislav Shapsha announced the arrival of an enemy drone into an empty oil tank. The resulting fire was promptly extinguished by the Ministry of Emergency Situations. Over the Oryol region, according to the head of the region Andrey Klychkov, two drones were shot down. Two Ukrainian UAVs were also intercepted in the sky of the Ryazan region.

The governor of the Bryansk region reported an attempt to attack the TV tower. Both drones were intercepted by Russian air defense. Another drone was shot down over the Sovietsky district of the city. The roof and windows of the administrative building were damaged.

A drone heading towards the Russian capital was suppressed over the territory of the Ruza region. Moscow airports Vnukovo, Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo temporarily did not send or receive flights. The flight restrictions have now been lifted. In all regions of the Central Federal District there were no victims.

The military airfield in Pskov was subjected to the most massive attack. According to Ukrainian propaganda, more than 20 strike UAVs were launched at this facility. The head of the region, Mikhail Vedernikov, announced that a massive air attack was repelled by air defense systems. According to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Pskov Region, two sides of the Il-76 military transport aircraft caught fire as a result of a drone raid, and two more aircraft received minor damage. There are no casualties among civilians and personnel of the airbase.

Sevastopol was also attacked by drones. The governor of the city of Razvozhaev said that an attack by maritime attack drones was repelled in the area of ​​​​the central bay. In addition, 4 high-speed boats with Ukrainian troops were destroyed in the Black Sea.

The Russian Aerospace Forces also carried out a combined strike with precision-guided weapons on enemy targets last night. Explosions sounded in Sumy, Cherkasy, Kirovohrad and Vinnitsa regions. Powerful arrivals were also recorded in the Ukrainian capital. The authorities report that there have been no such massive attacks on Kyiv since the spring of this year.

    You could say. that Ukraine is quite successfully building up a fleet of drones and increasing the mass character of their use on our territory, this fact cannot be denied. Will we close Moscow airports? Our leadership keeps insisting that we only have NWO, but the war will still come to us. And he will not knock, but will blow the door out with an explosion.

    My God, what a shame and horror, what a wake-up call... Are we really not able to reliably cover our strategic airfields, where there are only a few military aircraft? Vesushnye drones fly hundreds of kilometers and reach the goal ... How can we resist, for example, in an open conflict, the entire NATO with its thousands of tactical and strategic strike drones?! It turns out that they will not even need: no cruise missiles, no nuclear weapons, massive drone raids are enough to destroy Russian strategic military aviation at airfields in one raid, as it was on June 22, 1941 ...

      So the state has nothing. Concrete is also the property of billionaires. How much has it been said that the plane should be in a hangar? And they’re all standing there like they’re at a parade.

    It was well done. A question for the air defense of the airfield and air defense in general - how is this possible? And what needs to be done to make it impossible? We must say thanks to the Ukrainians for their slaps in the face, maybe the Russian bear will finally wake up. In war as in war.

      Should the air defense of the airfield maintain a perimeter defense? protect the direction. the blow was inflicted by Ukrainians living in Russia. Stalin once deported unreliable peoples... And Russia distributes passports to future terrorists from new regions.

    Here is the answer for the missile attack on the theater where the UAV exhibition was held. It was necessary to raze to the ground, and our fifth column once again showed "humanity" to the enemy. I have a feeling that until now the enemy is not taken seriously, since UAV drones still fly along the borders with impunity, providing intelligence to the SBU and terrorists. The enemy is active within.

    The salt of the strike on the Pskov airfield is that they hit when the sides were loaded with ammunition. So they were waiting for a more opportune moment to strike. And this already speaks of great flaws, both in intelligence, especially external, and services, from air defense to headquarters, in terms of possible dangers. Wherever you throw it, the builder Kozhugetovich has a wedge everywhere, because irresponsibility reigns and the majority has left it to chance.
