Photos taken by satellite imaging company BlackSky and US space technology company Maxar on May 16 show two Russian fighter jets burned on the main runway at Belbek air base in the city.

Satellite images also showed one building destroyed nearby and another building with significant damage.

Mr. Mikhail Razvozhaev, Governor of Sevastopol appointed by Russia, said on May 17 that Russia `successfully repelled a large-scale enemy attack on Sevastopol`.

According to him, Razvozhaev `dozens` of drones and `more than five unmanned boats were destroyed`.

This is the second attack on Russia’s Belbek base in the past 48 hours.

The Atesh movement claimed after the second attack that an artillery depot at the Belbek base had been damaged.

`There was significant damage to airport infrastructure due to the explosions,` Atesh said.
