Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 11, 2022

New satellite images show at least seven destroyed fighter jets at an airbase in the Russian-controlled peninsula of Crimea, shortly after Ukraine said nine planes were destroyed in a string of deadly explosions at the site. The images, provided by Planet Labs PBC and taken mid-afternoon on Wednesday, undermine Russia's claim that the explosions on Tuesday, which killed one and wounded 14, did not cause serious damage. Russia's military has said no aircraft were destroyed in the explosions and has blamed the blasts on the detonation of stored ammunition.

Given the location of the Russian base, the weaponry the Ukrainians are reportedly using, and the photographic evidence - satellite and on-ground video - the Russians must be scrambling, trying to figure this one out. Not a small matter.

This destruction would stop if Ukraine would just surrender.

The seven jets weren't next to each other nor were they by some single (fuel) explosion. Damn, that is one pathetic Russian disinformation attempt! Weak!

And the image is clear - they weren't damaged, they were obliterated!

No part of Russia remains safe from Putin's madness.

His supporters need to GTFO of Crimea before Ukraine has spare ammo.
