Not sure, but smoking is bad for you:
You can even see the impact areas for the cigarette butts, and the s-400 did not have time to take them down it seems:
Could be faked, but sure I'm willing to entertain it
Don't see what you're so smug about though. It's not going to win Kiev the war, where for every one such strike such as this or on the Kherson aerodrome, the Ukrainians receive 50 back.
Sure, 50 back. At least!
Well you can count all the Kh-59s, Izd. 305s, Kalibrs, Kh-32s, Kh-29s, Iskanders if you wish. But there are a lot hitting Ukrainian targets.
And in such a war it's manpower losses that matter. At least for Russia. Equipment, ammo, fuel is all manufactured in Russia and replaceable.
So what hit the airfield, you think? What about air defence?
Dunno. HIMARS again? Something supersonic and small enough to have escaped notice
In which case air defense looks to have failed.
But I'm assuming here the satellite pics are true. There were a lot of people in that area; I know those parts. Saki is a very popular resort town in the Crimea. If it were missiles, people would have seen them. So far no reports.
