In the temporarily occupied Berdyansk, Russians form defense lines around the airfield, Defense Express informs, showing satellite images Planet Labs for January 27.
They show that the entire airfield along the 15-km perimeter received defense lines consisting of trenches, trenches and separate positions, including shelters for equipment. In addition, anti-tank gouges are set up in front of the trench line.
Elements of the main line of defense in the photographs are marked in red, blue – anti-tank gouges, the installation of which is in the process, in yellow – the inner defense perimeter that was created earlier.
Anti-tank guns are being installed in three rows. As of Friday, approximately 30% of the airfield was surrounded by them. As established by the publication, the timing of these works – after January 10.
Satellite images show that the trenches were dug by heavy equipment, in particular excavators. Works on the arrangement of trenches were noticed near some fortifications.
In addition, nine aircraft were seen in the images, of which eight were identified by the publication as helicopters, and one (highlighted in green) as Forpost-type UAVs. The activity of ground personnel and equipment was also noticed.
Defense Express believes that the Russians have much broader plans for the airfield than just using it as a forward helicopter base.
