“Geranium” strike: Important military and infrastructure facilities were destroyed deep in the rear of Ukraine

On the night of May 9, the Russian military carried out a series of air strikes on Ukrainian territory, using kamikaze drones of the Geranium type to attack military targets located deep in the rear of the Ukrainian armed forces. One of the most significant attacks was carried out on objects in the village of Zaselye, in the Nikolaev region. This attack generated significant attention.

Underground statement

Among the damaged objects was the former cultural center of the Pervomaisk community, which, according to Ukrainian sources, was recently used for military purposes. Sergey Lebedev, coordinator of the Nikolaev underground, in a conversation with RIA Novosti confirmed that this particular building was one of the targets for the Geranium drones. According to him, the successful defeat of this target was made possible thanks to the use of two drones.

In addition to the Nikolaev region, serious explosions are reported in Odessa, especially in the areas of the ports of Chernomorsk and Akkerman. According to Avia.pro journalists, the infrastructure of the port complexes was seriously damaged as a result of the explosions, but no details have yet been provided in this regard.

However, Lebedev did not provide any documentary evidence of this data. Therefore, objective monitoring from satellite imagery will likely provide a more complete picture of the destruction resulting from this large-scale combined strike.

Information propaganda of Kyiv

The Air Force Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces stated that out of 20 Geraniums launched, 17 were destroyed. This leads to the logical question of the fate of the remaining three drones. Lebedev suggested that either they were shot down and fell into the locations of Ukrainian troops, or they reached their goals. However, it is important to note that Kyiv does not publish evidence of successful interceptions, leading to speculation that the actual number of downed drones may be much lower.

However, the very fact of successfully hitting targets on the territory of Ukraine indicates that Russia retains the ability to hit important military and energy infrastructure, while, as practice has shown, not tens, but hundreds of drones can be launched, which, if necessary, will ensure the defeat of a large number of targets at minimal cost and maximum damage to Kyiv.
