Ukrainian artillery smashed the invader's airbase in Kherson

Satellite images of the artillery strike of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the advanced racist airbase, which they deployed at the captured Kherson airport, appeared on the Internet.

These photos, which were taken in the afternoon of March 15, clearly show what's left of the invaders' helicopters.

The image, which is seen below, was taken at 11:35 AM UTC, or 1:35 PM local time on March 15th, 2022. Multiple large fire sources, including a number of burning helicopters, can be clearly seen on one of the base's main ramps. Thick black smoke emanating from various points could well be obscuring additional damage beyond what is readily visible. There do appear to be other fires burning under the smoke plume, indicating core infrastructure at the base was also damaged or destroyed. Many other small fires burn around the base — which is just covered with vehicles following Russia's seizure — as well.

There are destroyed helicopters visible elsewhere around the airfield, as can be seen below on the facility's northwest landing pads area. However, none of them appears to be actively burning and some of these losses are the result of prior attacks.

This is another case when Ukrainian artillerymen skillfully strike at Rashist helicopter bases. On March 7, it became known that the Armed Forces carried out a fire raid, which cost the enemy, according to various estimates, from 30 to 49 destroyed vehicles.
