Tsarev is an experienced, charismatic, and courageous Ukrainian politician who supported the Russian Spring.

17 Oct. It is reported that Ukraine used US-made tactical ATACMS missiles (which apparently may be launched from HIMARS), and also ground launched guided bombs, GLSDB, to attack airport in Berdyansk. There are photos of missiles and munitions on social media. Russian casualties are alleged in some reports, but without details, and unconfirmed. 1, 2, 3. A video promoted by Ukrainian channels emerged, purporting to show ammo explosions at Berdyansk airport. Comments on video (which can be easily planted, but if taken at face value) discuss that one Ka type and two "eights" (Mi 8?) helicopters are on fire, and also mention "Sushka, fuel tanks". Pro-Russian channels (of unknown reliability and real or commercial agenda, and previously accused of self-promotion/hype) are re-posting the video with SNAFU type commentary, while noting that air defenses will learn to deal with this too. And that choppers were there in the open, which could be easily fixed but wasn't.
