After the sabotage in the Crimea, the American satellite began a detailed survey of Russian military bases

After the sabotage at the ammunition depot in Dzhankoy, a US military satellite conducted reconnaissance of one of the largest military bases in the Crimea.

On August 17, 2022, an American military spacecraft conducted a thorough reconnaissance of one of the largest military bases in the Crimea, a military airfield located near the Gvardeyskoye settlement. At least two dozen combat aircraft are located on the territory of the latter, however, experts believe that reconnaissance of the territory of the military airfield may be evidence that this information will be transferred to the Ukrainian military, who previously claimed responsibility for sabotage at an ammunition depot near the village of Maiskoe .

On the presented satellite images of the military air base near the Gvardeyskoye settlement, you can see detailed data on the location of combat aircraft, ammunition depots, as well as places for temporary storage of ammunition. Such assistance from the United States makes it much easier for the Ukrainian military to obtain classified information, especially after recent provocative statements from Kyiv.

At the moment, it remains unknown whether the combat aircraft located at the airbase in Gvardeisky are involved in the special operation, however, it is obvious that the security of military facilities in Crimea has been significantly strengthened.
