16 aircraft lost by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in an attempt to attack Zmeiny Island


On the evening of May 7, the Russian Ministry of Defense provided a summary for the past day, in which said about the course of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory and some details of the operational situation near Serpent's Island in the Black Sea were reported. According to the military department, on that day, on approaching the island, the Russian Armed Forces shot down Su-24, Su-27, 3 Mi-8 units and 2 Bayraktar-TB2 units of the Ukrainian Air Force, and also sank the armored landing assault boat Stanislav » Navy APU.


This indicates that the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to attack the RF Armed Forces on this piece of land and land air and sea assault forces to take control. Moreover, this is not the first time the Ukrainian military has shown interest in Serpent Island.

According to the analysis, confirmed by the information of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for May 2-8, the total losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Zmeiny Island amounted to 16 aircraft and 2 watercraft, and this is not counting the personnel. The list of destroyed weapons includes: 4 Su-24 bombers, 1 Su-27 fighter, 8 Bayraktar-TB2 drones, 1 Mi-24 helicopter, 3 Mi-8 helicopters (with landing troops), 1 BDSHK project 58181 "Centaur" (with a landing force) and the naval guard ship "Grigory Kuropyatnikov" (BG 50) of project 1241.2 (code "Lightning").


Please note that some media write about Grigory Kuropyatnikov as a corvette, but this is debatable, since it is a large boat, not even a small ship by modern standards. According to Soviet terminology, this is a boat, since in the USSR the class of corvettes was not distinguished, they corresponded to the subclass of anti-submarine ships - patrol ships of the near sea zone (frigates are the far sea zone). However, according to the NATO classification, Soviet (Russian) small anti-submarine ships and small missile ships, including project 1241/1241.1 missile boats, are classified as corvettes.

At the same time, no one in Russia calls the small missile ships of Project 21631 Buyan-M corvettes, although their standard displacement is 850 tons, and the total displacement is 949 tons, and NATO considers them corvettes. Moreover, the standard displacement of Grigory Kuropyatnikov is only 399 tons, and the total displacement is 455 tons. It is part of a series of Soviet boats, some of which were missile (1241.1), and some were anti-submarine (1241.2) in the Soviet Navy. A total of 80 different modifications were built. In the Ukrainian Navy, “Grigory Kuropyatnikov” was made a “border guard”. Given the above, "Grigory Kuropyatnikov" can either be considered a corvette, or not, depending on the terminology used.

We remind you that the only frigate of the Ukrainian fleet "Hetman Sahaydachny", the pride and flagship of the Ukrainian Navy, was sunk at the end of February in Nikolaev, at the very beginning of the NWO.

    "Lightning" by naval standards is called a BOAT. It is called a ship according to the border rules. Well, it was like that in Soviet times. And so the situation with the island is quite scrupulous. Ours recognize the withdrawal of all forces from the island, by the way, the Armed Forces of Ukraine also recognize this. But all attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to land, for some reason, have not yet been successful. Again, there is a topic about the fact that ours suffered losses there, including on ships. Since the Moscow Region is hushing up the topic, I can’t say anything.
    Videos of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the bombing and shooting down of the turntable are very interesting in terms of the use of technology. Bombers at an extremely low altitude throw bombs (the first plane) and the second falls under the influence of this bomb ... Well, on the turntable you can see that it hung and "warm" carcasses began to descend from it on cables and at that moment arrival. Definitely the helicopter was Ukrainian.
    As we can see, the drone filmed videos for Ukrainian publics, but something went wrong.
    In this topic, both sides talk too much and one-sidedly, and it’s still not clear what really happened there, but ours definitely left the island. Whether there is an APU there has not yet seen evidence. The number of destroyed equipment is also not clear.

      Do you know anything about the previous ukrovideo with congratulations on one (or two?) boats similar to raptors, and is there also a missile hit on some installation on the island?

        well, it seems like people recognize the facts of hits on boats. However, the estimates are different, so I will not say something specific. Considering that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is actively hushing up the topic, the situation here is probably not in favor of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. It seems that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation recognized first the damage to the air defense system and then its destruction. There was information about a hit or attempted shelling of a Russian landing boat and a border one, but again, the sources, although Russian, but without any evidence.

          Helicopter shot down. But the video of the defeat of aircraft and helicopters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, no.
          Knowing about May 9, it’s quite possible. that they use military cunning - lie by May 9

    In fact, there is not a single (!!!) confirmation of the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    Damn, even in WW2, cameras were installed on planes to record the defeat of enemy equipment, we have the 21st century in the yard, and the losses of the enemy are drawn in the pictures!

      Well, i.e. do they have losses? And why are they begging for weapons and a no-fly zone in the west, if everything is so fine with them and there are no losses?

        Did I say that they have no losses?
        No need to think it over.
        And I specifically expressed bewilderment about the situation with the island.

    This island is of strategic importance for the Black Sea region. However, during the war between Russia and Ukraine, it makes absolutely no sense for both sides to have troops on the island, because on the one hand this island is within reach of Ukrainian artillery and on the other hand within reach of the Russian fleet

      What kind of artillery is this? Which is still being delivered? And even then it is difficult to call it “Ukrainian” ...
