On October 8, 1950 at 16:17 local time (the Korean War was then), a military airfield located 2 kilometers southeast of the village was attacked by two US Air Force fighter Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star (Meteor) ) As a result of this raid, seven Soviet aircraft were damaged, one of them completely burned down (it was a Bell P-63 Kingcobra aircraft , previously supplied by the USA to the USSR under Lend-Lease ). At that moment, the 821st fighter regiment of the 190th air division , whose aircraft were attacked, was temporarily relocated to this airdrome, which belonged to Pacific Fleet aviation. Of the personnel, no one was hurt.   .
The day after the raid, a representative of the USSR made an official protest at the UN . 11 days later, US President Harry Truman made a statement in which he pleaded guilty to the United States, proposed "... to provide funds to compensate for any damage to Soviet property" and announced that the commander of the US Air Force regiment in the Far East was relieved of his post, and the pilots given to the tribunal.
