KYIV, Ukraine — A powerful attack on a Russian air base in occupied Crimea was the work of Ukrainian special forces, a Ukrainian government official told The Washington Post on Wednesday, suggesting an increasingly important role for covert forces operating deep behind enemy lines as the country expands efforts to expel Russian troops.
The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, did not disclose details of how Tuesday’s attack was carried out. The attack marks a significant escalation in the nearly six-month-old war, demonstrating a new ability by Ukrainian forces to carry out attacks further behind the front lines than had previously been thought possible.
At least three explosions rocked the Saki air base Tuesday, in a coastal area of the Crimean Peninsula...

“a Ukrainian government official told The Washington Post”
Now that’s some reliable sourcing. 😴
So those big explosions and burning planes we saw on video never happened?

I’ve seen videos of Godzilla wrecking Japan.
It’s always going to be self-serving no matter which side. Amazing that people still get their little endorphin rushes over it.
Exactly. The Ukrainian government had Nina Janlowicz, the Polish/Ukrainian agitator artist, working for them, Biden tried to bring her in to head a Ministry of Truth, so that tells you alot about Ukraine’s credibility.
Secondly, the Ukrainian government has been caught in dozens and dozens of examples of putting out fake footage like the Ghost of Kyiv, Snake Island soldiers not surrendering when they did, Arma 3 video game footage being passed off as Russian losses, and lots of examples of this from February until recently, and fake news WaPo undoubtedly eats it up.
Massive explosions, visible from miles away, rocked a Russian airfield near Novofedorivka in Crimea on August 9, 2022, at about 15:20LT. The airfield in question is Saki Air Base, home of the Russian Navy Black Sea Fleet ’s 43rd Independent Naval Attack Aviation Regiment (43 OMShAP), which flies Su-24 Fencer bombers and Su-30 Flanker fighter jets.
Sink Moskva and the Rus Black Sea fleet. Now destroy the Rus air force based in Crimea. Putin might stroke out. Crimea belongs to Ukraine. The only reason there are so many Rus there.... Is that after WW2 Stalin deported tens of thousands of native Tatars and Greeks and others from Crimea. And brought in thousands of Russians.
Additionally, there’s the following, and lots more, where some of the MSM early cheerleaders are cracking and the truth is getting out more and more:
Western libtard media is cracking concerning its distorted, one-sided media reporting on Ukraine, but the facts are emerging on Ukraine even though Biden, like Odumba, never saw a moment to have some form of MIC warmongering he could say no to:
As with the report on CBS News Censoring Its Own Documentary Exposing How 70% of US Funding of Ukraine is Wasted (Summit News) there is the following:

“I took CNN’s edit of the Roger Waters interview and compared a particular section, where Roger spoke about Ukraine, to the uncut version that contained some important context about the Minsk agreements but was taken out by producers.”

Welcome to Free Republic.
August 10th imagery show very large craters, many destroyed aircraft, and destroyed buildings. It looks like a direct hit on the building on the left, so whatever it was seems accurate.
Ukraine Weapons Tracker
#Ukraine: The first satellite pics of the aftermath of the Russian airbase in Novofedorivka, #Crimea have arrived: they show massive destruction.
We count approx. 5x Su-30SM multirole fighters & 6x Su-24M/MR strike/reconnaissance aircraft that were destroyed. 4 more is possible.
More videos and satellite pictures of the destruction of the Russian air base, aircraft, etc.
Well I’m waiting until this conflict is over and we’ll see then how it plays out. I suspect Ukrainians will be back to their normal conflicts and corruption and possibly updating to digital enough they can pull off their money laundering with ease. You can change an environment but not the general culture of a people.
