American satellites filmed the area hit by the Armed Forces of Ukraine
American commercial satellites filmed Chernomorneftegaz drilling rigs, which were hit by the Ukrainian military today. According to RIA Novosti, this happened about a week before the attack.
Agency reports that the survey was carried out by satellites Worldview-1, Worldview-2 and Worldview-3. They photographed the area where the drilling rigs were located on June 11, 13 and 14, respectively.
The head of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, had previously reported on the strikes against Chornomorneftegaz facilities. At the moment, it is known about the rescue of five people, the fate of seven more is being clarified. A total of 109 people were on the three affected towers.
According to a source from the agency, the blow was struck on one of the drilling platforms at the latitude of Cape Tarkhankut, which is located 100 kilometers from the Crimean coast.
In turn, State Duma deputy from Crimea Mikhail Sheremet said that an object located near Zmeiny Island, which was occupied by the Russian military after the start of the military operation in Ukraine, was attacked.
The parliamentarian added that after the attack on oil rigs Russia has a “free hand” and will retaliate against Ukrainian decision-making centers.
