Russian propagandist Telegram channels have admitted to the attack on the airfield in Akhtubinsk, where a Su-57 aircraft was hit on June 8.

The damage to the aircraft was acknowledged by the pro-Russian channel Fighterbomber, which is close to military aviation.

According to their information, three drones allegedly reached the airfield in Akhtubinsk. It is currently being determined whether the Su-57 can be restored.

The post emphasized that throughout Russia's military invasion of Ukraine, the occupiers have failed to address the construction of shelters for aircraft.

"For the price of just this one Su-57, shelters from drones could have been built for all operational-tactical aviation aircraft in the country," the channel complained, highlighting the occupiers' miscalculation.

Damage to the Russian Su-57

The Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) announced the destruction of the latest Russian Su-57 aircraft on Saturday, June 8.

This occurred for the first time in history during an attack on the airfield in Akhtubinsk, confirmed by satellite images.

Previously, the Ukrainian Air Force referred to Russia's latest Su-57 aircraft as an expensive toy. Read more about why in RBC-Ukraine's report.
