Source: Meduza

Ukrainian counterintelligence launched a drone attack on a military airfield in Russia’s Kursk region, a source in Ukraine’s special services told the publication RBC Ukraine.

The source says that overnight on August 27, suicide drones “worked on four Su-30 airplanes and one MiG-29,” as well as the radar systems of an S-300 missile system and two Pantsir anti-aircraft missile systems.

Nearly all the drones reached their targets, the source said. He did not specify how many drones were launched in total, but did say that preliminary information suggests that only three were shot down.

The Russian authorities reported drone strikes on a multi-story apartment building on Karl Marx Street in Kursk. The publication Agentstvo determined that the building is located 300 meters (less than 1,000 feet) from two separate military facilities.

No Russian Telegram channels or other news sources reported a large drone attack on any targets in the Kursk region during the night of August 27.

At the moment of publication, there is also no video evidence of the attack on a military airfield described by RBC Ukraine’s source.
