Crimea has been targeted in a series of devastating missile strikes by Kyiv in recent days and weeks. Early in August, Saky airfield was struck in a spectacular attack on the military base. Explosions at the airfield caused panic among Russian holidaymakers and led to an exodus from the peninsula.
Western military analysts later claimed that the Black Sea Fleet had lost half of its airforce in the attack.
Russia has deployed S-400 air defence systems to try and shoot down incoming missiles from Ukraine’s army.
Now a Russian tourist has given a helping hand to Ukraine’s commanders, as they seek to locate and destroy Russia’s air defence weapons.
The Russian tourist posed in his swimming trunks, standing a short distance in front of the S-400 batteries.
He then posted the photo to social media, allowing Ukraine’s army to geolocate his position.
Ukraine’s army chiefs couldn’t help but express their appreciation to the Russian holidaymaker.
While Walter Report quipped: “The mighty Russian anti-air defences.”
WarMonitor added: “Russian forces are putting inflatable S-300 models around Crimea to pretend they have a layer of air defence.
“This military is probably one of the most corrupt in the world (laughing emojis).”
It comes as Russia’s FSB accused Ukraine of being behind the murder of Darya Dugina.
Russian investigators claimed that Dugina’s murder was prepared and carried out by Ukraine’s special services, who they said travelled to Estonia after the killing.
