21 Sep: Finally! Ukrainians Annihilate Crimean Bases In The Largest Drone Strike Of The Entire War - Reporting from Ukraine

Day 575: Sep 21

Today, the strikes in the south reached peak intensity.

Ukrainians conducted the biggest drone strike in the war, combining it with Strom Shadow missiles, while Russians launched almost half a hundred missiles in retaliation.

First of all, in response to yesterday’s devastation on the Russian bases inflicted by the Ukrainian strike, Russian forces decided to respond reciprocally and retaliated with a missile strike as well. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russians launched 43 missiles, and that 36 of them were intercepted. Still, the remaining 7 missiles hit Ukrainian cities.

The first target of the Russian strike became a substation connected to one of the Thermal Power Plants in Rivne. This was the first time in a very long time since Russians targeted Ukrainian energy infrastructure. As a result, 5 cars parked in the vicinity were damaged, and some parts of the city temporarily lost electricity.

The second target became the hotel “Tsentralna” in Cherkasy. Russian sources claimed that the hotel was used as a base for foreign mercenaries, however, the abundant footage from the first moments of the strike till the end of evacuation shows that there were around 24 people in the hotel in total – all of them Ukrainian civilians.

In Kyiv, Russians reportedly tried to hit the radio factory, however, judging by the hole in the ground in the backyard, the missile missed the target and fell in the residential area, damaging a lot of small houses, cars, and a dormitory.

In Drohobychi, local residents reported hearing at least 3 explosions in the industrial area. Given the lack of footage, it seems like this time, Russians hit a military object, possibly a warehouse with equipment.

When it comes to the good news, Ukrainians broke all records and conducted the biggest drone strike in this war. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that over the last day, they intercepted 75 drones, 19 of which in the morning and also 5 Strom Shadow missiles. In light of the abundance of footage of explosions, the analysts concluded that Ukrainians launched more than 100 drones and up to 2 dozen of missiles.

The main target of the strike became the Russian airfield in Novofedorivka. Ukrainian Intelligence reported that at the moment of the strike, Russians had 12 fighter jets of various types and one air defense Pantsir. The airfield is also used as a training base for operators of drones Mojaher, so there were a lot of aerial targets. We have seen footage of explosions from drone strikes in this region already yesterday, however, this was just to exhaust and overload the Russian air defense prior to a missile strike.

In fact, in order to create a safe passage, Ukrainians also sent groups of drones to Rozdolne, Daleke, and Mizhvodne from the north and Belbek airfield and Sevastopol from the west. After that, Ukrainians launched Neptune missiles at the airfield. As a result, it was reported that Russian aviation suffered significant damage and destruction. Some Russian sources also mentioned that Russians also lost at least 30 soldiers. Later, the Ukrainian General Staff confirmed that they conducted a combined attack on the airfield.

Nonetheless, this was not the only successful strike today. Geolocated footage suggests that a lot of targets were hit around Sevastopol as well. So far, there is not enough information regarding the target of this strike, however, more information became available about yesterday’s strike in this place.

Recently released satellite footage from Planet Labs shows the aftermath of the Strom Shadow strike on the command post of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. Ukrainian Intelligence reported that this was communication center number 744 of the Russian command. The Russian command used this previously abandoned base instead of the main one because Ukrainians already hit their main headquarters with the drones in the past. Unfortunately for Russians, the safety measures did not help. By the way, after evacuating all of their submarines from Sevasotopol, Russians started evacuating all assault landing ships, so it looks like Crimea no longer has its fleet, and after today – also aviation.

In the meantime, Ukrainians conducted a precision strike on another Russian command center – this time in Melitopol. Ukrainian Intelligence found out that Russians started using a former engine factory, communicated this information to the Air Force, and together destroyed it. As a result, dozens of officers were killed and dozens hospitalized, including the commander of the Russian 58th Army.
