Russian invaders are continuing to use an airfield in the occupied town of Melitopol as a base for their aircraft and helicopters, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a report posted on Facebook on April 28.

"The Russian occupiers are continuing to use Melitopol airfield as a base for Su-25 attack aircraft, Ka-52 attack helicopters and Mi-8 transport and combat aircraft," reads the report.

The town of Melitopol has been under a Russian military occupation since early March, falling after fierce fighting with the Ukrainian military.
