Russian Factory Fixing Advanced A-50 Spy Plane Damaged in Strike: Reports:
Ukrainian drone attack on Russia struck an aircraft facility where a spy plane already previously targeted by Kyiv was being repaired.
The Beriev Aircraft Company plant in the Rostov oblast city of Taganrog, southwestern Russia, was reportedly among the targets of what the regional Governor Vasily Golubev described as a massive drone attack overnight Friday. This has not been independently confirmed, and Newsweek has emailed the Russian Defense Ministry for comment.
Russian military bloggers said Ukraine had targeted the site that produces Be-200 amphibious aircraft. However, an A-50 Russian long-range radar detection aircraft, which had been previously damaged in a drone attack claimed by Kyiv, was being repaired at the site at the time of the strike, Ukrainian online newspaper Pravda Ukraine reported.
However, Serhiy Bratchuk, a spokesman for the Odesa regional military administration, said the factory repairs the A-50s, which have a reported price tag of $300 million.
Two weeks ago, Ukraine's Air Force said it had downed a Russian Beriev A-50U long-range radar-detection aircraft near the Sea of Azov on February 23 using a Soviet S-200 anti-aircraft system. Kyiv had said that it took out the same model plane on January 14 over the same body of water.
"It is not known whether the A-50U standing nearby was hit," Bratchuk wrote on Telegram, next to a video purporting to show Friday's strike. However, he added that geolocated footage shows a drone striking part of the Beriev site. --->READ MORE HERE
Ukraine gaining ground on Dnipro’s eastern bank in Kherson region:
Ukraine’s Defense Forces continue to expand their bridgehead on the eastern bank of the Dnipro.
That’s according to Operational Command South, Ukrinform reports.
"In the operational zone of Defense Forces South, counterbattery battles continue non-stop. However, today, the enemy did not run assault operations, resorting to artillery and mortar strike in the area of Krynky," the report reads.
As noted, Ukrainian soldiers are holding their positions, taking measures to strengthen and expand the bridgehead on the eastern bank.
At the same time, Russian invaders are actively conducting aerial reconnaissance, exerting artillery pressure, employing a large number of attack drones of various types, and for the first time in 10 days, deploying a tactical warplane to drop a guided bomb that hit a five-storey apartment block in the center of Kherson. A seven-year-old child was injured.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Russia’s total combat losses since February 24, 2022, have amounted to 423,160. --->READ MORE HERE
