Quote: “There is an official position of the Ukrainian government, the top military leadership… The Russian enemy does not know how to implement fire safety measures. But all of Ukraine is happy about it. Dzhankoy is another airport that the enemy has attacked. Helicopters and other military equipment.

According to a video published in open sources, we are seeing the explosion of ammunition… We hope that the enemy will get rid of the equipment and personnel of the flight crew in this way (as happened at Saki Airfield )…”

Details: According to Ihnat, it is too early to consider Russian losses, but he suggested that Ukrainian intelligence already has some data that will not be made public.

However, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force added that satellite images from the scene of an incident usually appear after some time.
