The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense released a video on Thursday showing the bombings on Snake Island, which, according to Ukrainian forces, led to the evacuation of Russian troops from the strategically located island in the Black Sea.
In a post on the Twitter page, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry explains the 3 “ingredients” of the operation to drive the Russians out of Snake Island: “Ukrainian military capabilities; modern Ukrainian weapons; equipment from our international partners”.
In another statement on Thursday, the Ukrainian military commented paradoxically on the withdrawal of the Russians: “The Southern Operations Command confirms that the Russian occupiers have left Snake Island. They could not bear the weather – the earth was burning at their feet, the sea was boiling, and the air was very hot. PS Russian warships, go to hell! ”
The video shows the Ukrainians using locally made 2S22 “Bokton” howitzers to attack Snake Island.
The Russians on Thursday confirmed the withdrawal of troops from Snake Island
Russia on Thursday described the withdrawal of troops from Snake Island in Moscow as a “signal of goodwill”.
The Russian Defense Ministry says the Russian Federation has shown that it does not want to block UN efforts to organize a “humanitarian corridor” for the export of Ukrainian agricultural products by withdrawing troops from the island’s garrison.
Kiev did not specify what kind of missile and artillery systems were used in the bombing of the island, 50 kilometers from the Ukrainian city on the coast – Vlcov, Odessa region. Ukraine recently acquired from the United States sophisticated missile systems called Himars capable of hitting targets at a range of 70-80 km.
