New Aircraft Shelters at Marinovka Air Base: Deception, Protection, or Strategic Defense?

Satellite photos show aircraft shelters at Russia’s Marinovka air base in Russia’s Volgograd region, 300-km from the border with Ukraine. These come after Ukraine’s strikes with ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile System) on Crimea’s Belbek air base on May 15, 2024, and the destruction of an S-400 AD (Air Defense) system at Mospyne on May 22-23.

The attack on Belbek destroyed MiG-31, MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters, satellite images from Maxar later showed.

There are different assessments on the Marinovka shelters’ effectiveness. Even Russia-affiliated military commentators note that its air bases have long missed such protective hangars, and that they have come late in the war. The images, Google Earth, show “hangars in anticipation of deep strikes by Ukraine,” said Ukrainian military blogger Igor Sushko.
