"All ambulances were going there": official on explosions at Berdyansk airfield
Deputy Chairman of the Berdyansk District Council, Viktor Dudukalov, stated that Russian forces deployed nearly all their resources at night to address the aftermath of a strike on their position at the Berdyansk airfield
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"If we are talking about the explosions at the airfield in Berdyansk, it is not about quantity, but about quality. Because, apparently, the eliminated personnel at the airfield that night was very important to the invaders. This is evident by the number of ambulances that rushed to the place of the strike. That night, almost all ambulances in the city went to the airfield. The same goes for fire trucks. Local residents told us that all the forces were deployed to eliminate the consequences of the strike," said Dudukalov.
The deputy chairman of the district council also added that Russian forces have tightened control measures in Berdyansk.
"Following the strikes on the invading troops' location at the airfield in Berdyansk, the Russians have increased their control measures in the city. They are implementing stricter security measures, including the establishment of checkpoints and conducting checks of the local population. It is evident that these explosions had a significant impact on the occupiers," he added.
On the night of October 16-17, Ukrainian defenders successfully attacked Russian helicopters and airfields in Luhansk and Berdyansk.
