The Russians have withdrawn almost all of their combat aircraft from the Mozdok military air base, which was recently attacked by drones.

The military air base without planes was recorded by the Planet Labs satellite on June 12.

A satellite image of the aftermath of the strike on the military air base was also released. It shows a trail of fire caused by the fall and explosion of the drone.

However, the impact site is located 400 meters from the nearest aircraft parking lot.

The June 12 image also shows that at least some aircraft disappeared from the parking lot of the Mozdok military air base after the drone attack.

The only “plane” visible on the satellite image is a painted one, created to try to mislead those who monitor the base.

It is also worth noting that on June 11, a Su-34 fighter bomber took off from this base and crashed. The plane crash occurred near the village of Gorny Dzuarikau, where locals heard an explosion at night.

As previously reported, a group of strike drones attacked a Russian military air base near the city of Mozdok in North Ossetia.

This is the first time that an attack on this air base has been reported. Russian troops use it in the war against Ukraine.

The distance from Ukraine to this Russian aviation facility is approximately 1000 kilometers.

It is likely that the Russian military facility was attacked by Liutyi drones. That day, Russian Telegram channels published photos of the wreckage of allegedly Ukrainian Liutyi drones shot down in North Ossetia.

On June 11, Russia acknowledged that Ukrainian drones shot two of the state-of-the-art Su-57 fighter jets at the Akhtubinsk air base in the Astrakhan Oblast.
