Details: The media reported a drone attack on the military airfield and released a video of the attack.


The oblast governor claimed that "most of the UAVs had been destroyed".

The aftermath of the attack remains unknown, as the Russian authorities and Kremlin propaganda typically do not report damage.

Meanwhile, the airport in the Russian city of Volgograd temporarily suspended operations, with several arrivals and departures delayed.


For reference: Russia’s 559th Frontal Bomber Aviation Regiment is based at the military airfield in Morozovsk.

The base accommodates Su-24, Su-24M, and Su-34 frontline bombers.

Background: The Russians claimed that their air defences had supposedly intercepted and destroyed 33 drones on the night of 16-17 December.
