The Ukrainian Navy created a new battle group from the remaining ships

After the start of a special military operation of the RF Armed Forces on Ukrainian territory, the Ukrainian Navy was quickly neutralized. A month later, the Ukrainian naval command decided to create a new battle group in the Nikolaev-Kherson direction from the remaining ships to counter the Russian Navy, possible landing operations and the landing of Russian DRGs on the coast.

The mentioned group will patrol the waters of the Dnieper-Bug estuary, which is the confluence of the Dnieper (Dnieper River) and Bug (Southern Bug and Ingul) estuaries in the northern part of the Black Sea. At the same time, it will assist the work of the fighters of the 73rd Marine Special Operations Center (73rd Special Operations Center, military unit A1594) of the Ukrainian Navy in the Kinburn Spit area in the Kherson region. This unit is deployed in Ochakov, Mykolaiv region and specializes in reconnaissance and sabotage activities.

The group of the Ukrainian Navy includes: artillery boat "AKA-02" (located at Cape Saken); marine security boat BG-111 (near Cape Agigol); minesweeper "Genichesk" (east of Cape Saken); sea ​​dry cargo transport "Gorlovka" (to the south of Cape Adzhigol); landing craft "Svatovo" (near the Kinburn Spit).

However, the activity of this group is limited, since the Ukrainian military sailors themselves had previously blocked the entrance to the Dnieper-Bug Estuary by various ships between Ochakov and Kinburn Spit in order to prevent the passage of Russian ships. Moreover, the water area of ​​the entire northwestern part of the Black Sea "stuffed" mines from World War II. These munitions were “carefully” installed by the Ukrainian military themselves, and now they will prevent the specified group of the Ukrainian Navy from going to the open sea, if necessary.

In addition, there are also a number of surviving ships of the Ukrainian Navy in the neighboring Odessa region. But their attempts to be active promptly suppressed Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy.

In the port of Odessa there are: two small armored artillery boats BK-07 "Kostopol" (P180) and BK-06 "Nikopol" (P179) of project 58155 (code "Gyurza-M"); two armored assault boats "Malin" and "Stanislav" (project 58181 "Centaur"); training vessel "Novaya Kakhovka"; tug "Yany Kapu"; minelayer "Balta"; communication boat "Yuzhny" and diving vessel "Pochaev".

Near the port of Yuzhny (the village of Belyary) there are: the training vessel "Chigirin" and the auxiliary vessel "Shostka".

We remind you that recently the diving vessel "Neteshin" (U700) of project 535M (code "Crab") of the Ukrainian Navy was engaged setting min. But it was identified and attacked by an anti-aircraft missile from a Russian ship, after which the team sent the damaged ship ashore.

    you can practice compiling leaflets for military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who are interested. For example like this -

    A soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,
    if you honor the ideology of neo-Nazism, the ideology of Bandera, throw this leaflet away and wait your turn.
    if you consider yourself a patriot of Ukraine, then think about who is the real enemy of your homeland? Now you are protecting them. Who are you afraid of? Who are your relatives afraid of? Who are all the citizens of Ukraine afraid of? - SBU and neo-Nazis, a regime of hatred and inadequate. This regime you now defend.
    Nobody attacked Ukraine. Ukraine is not Russia's enemy. Soon you will understand it yourself, if you stay alive.

    Did they say that the Ukrainian Navy was destroyed?
    Judging by this information, the location of the fascist ships is known. What prevents the grouping of the Russian Navy from liquidating them?

      The absence of the necessary weapons in the arsenal of the Russian Armed Forces interferes. Impact drones are our piece goods. And kamikaze drones only go to exhibitions.

    Well, you can't do everything at the same time. The priority is the most significant and dangerous targets, the command knows better who to destroy in the first place, and who in the twenty-fifth turn. Why spray.

    So all the same, crests still have something. But then the question is - about the destruction of which Navy did our dear General Staff report?

    Did I understand correctly that the attack on Belgorod in Russia was carried out by helicopters, which were not touched due to "a decrease in hostilities in the direction of Kiev and Chernigov"? And having made sure that it was impossible to trust the Khokhols (who would doubt it), an answer went.

    The rest of the fleet will not make the weather. A big battle is being prepared in the Donbass. Everything will be decided there. And they are preparing for it thoroughly. They have advantages: a lot of personnel who are not badly armed, thanks to "partners", and are motivated (they are now having a national upsurge there ... or psychosis); provided intelligence information; equipped defensive positions. The result, alas, is not known.

    they will interfere with the instructions of the Ukrainian Navy group

    If you wish, you can leave. There must be minefield plans. Mines are set at a certain depth. .
    And there is no desire ....
