Satellite images have begun circulating on social media that purportedly show the aftermath of a series of explosions at a Russian airbase in Crimea on Tuesday.
Bellingcat founder Eliot Higgins shared before and after photos on Twitter Wednesday of what he said was the Saki airfield. The before photo, which was in color, appeared to show aircraft and buildings far below on a stretch of land.
Comparison of August 9th and August 10th imagery show very large craters, many destroyed aircraft, and destroyed buildings. It looks like a direct hit on the building on the left, so whatever it was seems accurate. pic.twitter.com/QyLn86PUjw
