Russian warplanes destroyed in the attack on the Crimea base

(ANSA) – ROME, AUG 11 – At least eight Russian warplanes were damaged or destroyed in the attack on the Saky air base in Crimea two days ago: satellite images taken by the secretive operator Planet Labs show this. International media publish photos from before and after the attack showing the first independent confirmation of damage to the base which is more than 160 kilometers from the front line. So far Kiev has officially denied responsibility for the attack. Moscow downplayed by denying that any aircraft were damaged and only admitting that “several ammunition exploded” in a storage area at the facility.
