Airbases Deep Inside Russia Rocked By Explosions; New Wave Of Airstrikes Pummel Ukraine

Click to see full-size image

Originally published on ZeroHedge

Monday saw another major escalation in the Ukraine war as Russian media reported that explosions rocked two air bases in Russia, suggesting Ukrainian forces could be seeking to launch missiles deep into Russian territory, though the exact cause or type of weapon behind the explosions are unknown. It could also possibly be another “sabotage attack” such that was previously seen in the Crimea.

One of the Russian bases struck reportedly hosts nuclear-capable strategic bombers being utilized in airstrikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. The Associated Press details in the aftermath of the blasts, “Russian state RIA Novosti news agency said three servicemen were killed and six others injured, and a plane was damaged, early Monday when a fuel truck exploded at an air base in Ryazan, in western Russia.”

 

The report underscored that “The base houses long-range flight tankers that serve to refuel bombers in the air.” The other base that was hit is being identified as in the Saratov region. The Saratov base lies some 600 kilometers east of Ukraine, so both the bases are relatively deep inside Russian territory.

Moscow meanwhile has taken quick, decisive action – once again launching a barrage of major airstrikes on Ukrainian cities, targeting particularly energy infrastructure as part of the stated purpose of degrading Ukraine’s power supply going into winter. For days Ukrainian officials have been warning the population to brace for new major attacks.

Air raid alert sirens sounded Monday across the country. “The enemy is again attacking the territory of Ukraine with missiles!” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, an official with the Ukrainian president’s office, wrote on Telegram.

According to more from the AP:

Media reports referred to explosions in several parts of the country, including the cities of Odesa, Cherkasy and Kryvyi Rih. In Odesa, the local water supply company said a missile strike cut power to pumping stations, leaving the entire city without water.

Civilians are sheltering in underground places like metro stations, especially in the populous Ukrainian capital…

Ukraine has so far counted a handful of deaths from Monday’s fresh round of Russian strikes. It’s expected that power and water access in many parts will be impacted more severely given most estimates have already put the national energy grid at 40% disabled.

“Zelenskyy’s office said three rocket strikes hit the president’s hometown of Kryvyi Rih in south-central Ukraine, killing a factory worker and injuring three others,” the AP continues. “In the northeastern region of Kharkiv, a person was killed in strikes by S-300 missiles on civilian infrastructure in the town of Kupyansk, it said.”

The two Russian airbases rocked by explosions on Monday were deep inside the country, suggesting the possibility of either a long-range Ukrainian strikes or also a sabotage operation on the ground…

And further there are emerging reports that a downed rocket has been found just long the border with Moldova, suggesting like the last wave of attacks Russia is targeting ever further West in Ukraine. Likely as a result Ukraine forces will try to continue hitting targets inside Russia, also as their capability grows given they have been supplied with ever-longer range rockets from the US and NATO countries.

This is becoming all out war between Amerika and Russia. Soon Russia will have to take the conflict to space and start nocking out all these satellite systems Washington is using right across the RF

This is what EVERYONE is afraid of happening as the war carries on. WW3 is inevitable if this war does not stop soon – the longer it goes on the more danger of the war expanding, especially if Russian turf is attacked (few major sensitive attacks on Russia will do it)

ES INEVITABLE UNA TERCERA GUERRA MUNDIAL CON USO DE ARMAS NUCLEARES ESTRATEGICAS POR CULPA DE LOS DEMENTES DE WASHINGTON DC QUE DE VERDAD HAN PERDIDO LA CABEZA

In the two Russian airports there may also have been accidents. I do not believe in any Ukrainian rocket attacks or sabotage that are unable to get through the Russian defenses. Ukraine and the West want to be the protagonists of History, but they have no chance of success. Call them, if you like, illusions.

Thats what I see too. Ukras has attacked 2 bases at Crimera. They dont have so many.

So kinds of sabotage or accidents are very possible.

Disinfo

Western media is reporting that the Ukrainians launched 2 old Soviet cruise missiles…….They would seem to be fairly accurate.

Putin is sad

Ru Ministry of Defense reported that it shot down two drones which caused damage to the planes.

Putin is sad

Putin’s ideology is that History is fixed and doesn’t need modernisation. That is why his military is performing so bad.

How is it possible that the US Intel over russian assets is more accurate then the russian intel over ukrainian assets.

The russian secret service and military intel agencys seem to be incompetent.

First the military ignored drones far to long despite the turks proved in armenia how capable they were and only started to push for integration of drones after the war had allready begun.

This ignorance and arrogance of the military ranks cost russia far to much. They need to be tried for corruption or whatever.

To Russia it is still a SMO (special military operation), and not a full out war… I don’t think you have any clue how bad things are in Ukraine. 100,000 dead and that is from the EU, so add a few hundred more to that (men are banned from leaving the country).

The SMO make things harder for Russian army to do things in Ukraine, and Russia doesn’t want to do what the US/NATO dose in other countries and just go ape mode (compare Iraq civilians death to Ukraine). Have you not notice how no one really talk “bad” about Russian army outside of the EU/West?

Russia isn’t looking to take over Ukraine nor do they want to use all their assets on a puppet country. Tell me why should Russia be so fuking stupid to use their new weapons against Ukraine?

Why should they give free intel to their enemy? Russia upgraded their air defence systems to hit the US HRMIS missiles… and guess what you dumbass NATO is getting intel on Russian weapons.

Do you know how many people are in Ukraine to take intel on Russian weapons? NATO isn’t doing this for Ukraine or free, they are getting what they want. But the longer this war goes the worse the EU would be in, not Russia. Guess what, the US is the biggest winner of this war, Russia was force into this war and the EU is falling apart. This war planned out YEARS ago, by the US to damage Russia and destroy the EU.

I’m reading elsewhere that the attacks were made by old Soviet made cruise missiles…………they are pretty accurate for their age if that is the case.

This story quotes AP. It could therefore be totally false.

The reports says explosions/(drones struck)?… Yes, there were explosions but one of the air base (Engels air base) the satellite imagery of the base shows no damage. There are no craters, large scorch marks, or traces of the burning of the fuel.

The rocket that fell in Moldova turned out to be fragments of a 5V55 missile defence system from the Ukrainian S-300PS / PT air defence system. <- that is true and we got pictures.

Well reports indicate the Zionists have transferred via Poland new technology to there fellow Ukrop gay boyz so if Russia has sense it will begin targeting Zio interests in Syria. If they have sense. Let’s see.

This deserves a hard response, like hitting targets in Poland as a response. Why is Russia not highly publicizing this or mentioning it or what they will do?

If this happened to an American base the jewish freaks in America would be shouting it from the top of the world that Russia attacked them and they’d be starting their retaliation.

Poland is far stronger than Ukraine. Are you sure Russia wants to take on hundreds of Abraham’s marching on Moscow?

You mean that hundreds of Jewish rabbis (Abrahams) will march on Moscow? No wonder as the most of Askhenazi Jews that are origin of the world troubles are from either Poland (like satanist Jakob Frank) or Germany (like Rotschields who are from Frankfurt)

Nope, shitskin. It is the fat pedophile St. Nicholas’s fault.

Poland and Germany are for some reason an ideal breeding ground for psychopats of any kind, especialy those of Jewish origin. Note that those “Straussians” that currently control the White House (Nuland, Perle, Wolfowitz, Blinken) are all members of that sabbatean-frankist satanist sect, -frankist coming from Jakob Frank of Poland.

I wonder why would someone with nickname “Slav ” would have such an anti-Slavic standing – maybe because he/she is not of Slavic origin at all – maybe he/she considers himself having a nordic/germanic origin allegedly superior to untermensch Slavs (which by the way always defeated each and any of germanic/nordic hordes…pardon….nations in direct conflicts). But germanic/nordic people are true heros in their own views (but not in reality).

Russia needs to put it’s world-wide nuclear forces on alert to ensure the fahclsts of the west knows that it means business.

Then it needs to hit across uKRAPistan with tactical nuclear missiles.

“major escalation in the Ukraine war”. If the author lived in Russia, he/she would risk being put on trial for spreading “unreliable socially significant untrue information” (i.e. using the word war to describe Russia’s actions in Ukraine).

I seriously get frustrated that Russia is not absolutely annihilating Kiev. Flatten the city and make sure that all government buildings and their occupants are destroyed. It really is time for Russia to double their bombing energy.

obvious the only way these actions can happen is the direct involvement of western (NATO) intelligence. I smell the British in particular. It’s the UK that is behind the “expand the war” push.
