Guerrillas staged an attack on the airfield of Russian troops in Yevpatoria, Crimea. As it turned out, it is not guarded regularly by the Atesh guerrilla movement.

"Our agent infiltrated the Russian occupiers' airfield in Yevpatoria and successfully conducted reconnaissance," the message says.

According to Atesh, a Pantsyr 96K6 missile defense system, and several Be-12 and An-12 aircraft were spotted at the airfield.

"According to available information, some aircraft are being repaired at this facility. The lack of permanent security of the entire territory has also been established," the guerrillas say.

Situation in Yevpatoria

Russian occupiers have set up firing positions right on the beaches of Yevpatoria in the temporarily occupied Crimea. In addition, Russia is bringing rare types of multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS) to the front line. The unloading of Grad-1 was recorded by guerrillas in occupied Yevpatoria. The Russian Federation is also bringing "dragon's teeth" (fortification - ed.) to the area of Yevpatoria by trucks.

Earlier, the Ukrainian Armed Forces struck at the location of a Russian air defense system near Yevpatoria in the temporarily occupied Crimea, which may indicate that the Russian air defense forces are not ready to repel Ukrainian attacks. According to Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson Yurii Ihnat, Crimea is crammed with Russian air defense systems, but they cannot cope with the Western missiles that Ukraine has.
