Quote: “In the area of Dzhankoi, the Russian occupiers have significantly strengthened air defence recently. But the result is obvious.”
Details: According to the StratCom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to preliminary data, at least eight S-400 air defence systems, three S-300 air defence systems, and five Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft defence systems were deployed in the area of the airfield near Dzhankoi.
In addition, 440 TPK (transport-launch containers) were amassed at the airfield.
“These TPKs were concentrated there in such a quantity not so much to protect the airspace as to be sent to the Kherson and Zaporizhia oblasts, for the shelling of Mykolaiv and Zaporizhzhia. Especially on the eve and directly on 24 August,” the message says.
Quote: “In the area of the Azovska railway station, 17 armoured combat vehicles, 10 Gvozdika self-propelled guns, 7 Msta-S self-propelled guns, 2 Pion self-propelled guns, 3 BM-21 Grad anti-aircraft guns were unloaded, as well as ammunition. And this is without taking into account what had already been standing and chilling under the hot Crimean sun.
Dzhankoi is a very important transit target. And this very important target was waiting for its time. Like other targets, they wait for their time. After all, we state again a violation of the rules of smoking in an unspecified place“.
