Footage released on Saturday, May 7, showed two Ukrainian Air Force Su-27 Flankers striking Russian facilities during a high speed bombing of Snake Island.

A Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 drone captured two Su-27s fly in low from the south, dropping multiple bombs as well as infrared countermeasure flares.

The raid appeared to strike direct hits to the island’s main complex and buildings above the pier.

There were then at least two major secondary explosions reported, which could mean the bombs struck an ammunition or fuel stage area, according to The Drive.

Ukraine also claimed a TB2 drone destroyed Russian landing ship on the island on Saturday.

Ukrainian official Anton Gerashchenko said: “Enemy units remaining on Snake Island remain without air cover and will be destroyed and burned out like cockroaches or locusts.”
