For FUD Crowd.

As is expected a bunch of TSIPSO trolls materialized but...

A Ukrainian drone strike on two Russian airbases in the Ryazan and Saratov regions has resulted in the deaths of three service members and minor damage to two airplanes, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday. A number of “Soviet-made” jet drones, flying at low altitude, targeted the long-range strategic aviation assets at the Dyagilevo airfield in Ryazan Region and Engels airfield in Saratov Region, the ministry said. While they were detected and shot down by air defenses, the debris impacted the airfields “slightly” damaging two aircraft. Three service members were “fatally injured” while four more were taken to military hospitals for treatment. The “terrorist act” did nothing to disrupt the work of Russian strategic aviation, the ministry added, noting that a “massive strike” was carried out against Ukrainian energy, defense industry, communication and military command centers on Monday afternoon local time. The strikes successfully disrupted the rail transport of Ukrainian troops, foreign-supplied weapons, equipment and ammunition to the front lines.

Every serviceman life is precious and RIP to the guys. But slight damage to the skin of aircraft is not a damage which affects anything in terms of operations. The drones were most likely TU-141 Strizh (or TU-143 Reys), reconfigured for lower altitude approach and, of course, working on data provided by NATO. 

This is not the first time 404 tries to use recon drones as cruise missiles. Nothing new.
