Two planes, nuclear bombers, were destroyed, according to reports on social media of a reported drone strike at an airfield in the Russian region of Saratov.
An unknown unmanned aerial vehicle crashed onto the airfield runway at the Russian Engels-1 airbase in Saratov Oblast, which Russia employs to launch massive missile strikes on Ukraine, namely on its energy infrastructure, according to Russian online news Telegram channel Baza.
Local media claimed that a drone strike had hit the Saratov airbase in Russia and damaged two Russian nuclear aircraft.
