Drone Footage Shows Damaged Russian Equipment at Kherson Airfield

Drone footage filmed over the airfield at Kherson International Airport near Chornobaivka, Ukraine, on November 12, shows damaged and abandoned Russian equipment.

Video filmed by Ukrainian drone operator Roman Buhai shows destroyed vehicles and structures at the airfield, which had been captured by Russian forces early in the invasion.

Ukrainian forces took control of Kherson after the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed the retreat of its armed forces from Kherson city and nearby areas on Friday, November 11.

The retreat came just under two months after the Kremlin claimed the annexation of Kherson Oblast following Moscow-controlled referendums in occupied Ukrainian territories.
