A satellite image of a recent strike by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on a facility in the temporarily occupied Crimea has been published online. It shows the damage that Ukrainian forces probably inflicted on the enemy in early January, according to Radio Liberty.

"The satellite image was published by Brady Afrik, an analyst at the American Enterprise Institute's Foreign and Defense Policy Research Department. He did not say which object it was," the article says.

The agency reminds that in the first days of January, Crimea suffered a series of air attacks. Then representatives of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and Ukrainian intelligence claimed to have hit the airfield in Saky.
