The fire blazing on drilling platforms captured by the Russians in the Black Sea can be seen from space. "Towers Boyko" has been burning since June 20.

The corresponding satellite images of the American aerospace agency NASA were published by "Radio Svoboda".

It is noted that NASA first recorded the fire on June 20, when three fires were visible. On this day, the Russians accused the Armed Forces of Ukraine of hitting drilling platforms.

Recall that the Russian Federation seized drilling platforms 100 km from Odessa and 150 km from Crimea in 2014. The invaders also used them to monitor the surface situation with the help of electronic intelligence.

Defenders of Ukraine attacked the drilling rigs of Chernomorneftegaz, appropriated by Russia, which are also called "Boyko's towers". Now the invaders will not be able to produce gas in the Ukrainian Black Sea.

The Russian authorities have already threatened Ukraine for hitting stolen drilling platforms.

"Senator" from Crimea Olga Kovitidi said that as of June 21, the fire at the "Boyko towers" had not been eliminated.
