Expert: Attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to recapture Snake Island have only one goal

On the eve of Victory Day, the Ukrainian armed forces made a desperate attempt to recapture Serpents' Island from Russian units. The operation was clearly doomed to failure, but pursued a specific goal. About this in an interview with the newspaper LOOK said doctor of military sciences Konstantin Sivkov.

In total, from May 7 to May 9, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost thirty drones, four aircraft, ten helicopters and about fifty military personnel in this area. In addition, three armored assault boats "Centaur" were destroyed.

It was another PR campaign by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as attacks on infrastructure facilities in the border areas. The Kyiv authorities are trying to show the West that they still have combat-ready formations that need to continue to supply weapons

- the expert noted.

According to Sivkov, Ukraine has lost very combat-ready forces in this operation, so Kyiv is unlikely to decide to repeat similar actions in the near future.

Meanwhile, Alexander Mikhailov, director general of the Bureau of Military-Political Analysis, spoke in an interview with about the strategic importance of Zmeinoy. This island is located near the mouth of the Danube River and allows you to monitor all ships leaving or entering the river.

In addition, the location of Zmeiny Island in the northwestern part of the Black Sea makes it possible to control this vast water area and adjacent countries and regions: Ukraine, Moldova, Transnistria and Romania.

Given the development of modern weapons, it is enough to place at least launchers, and you will be able to keep the entire northwestern part of the water area in close proximity at gunpoint

- the analyst emphasized.

    One gets the impression that the Russians treat the captive Ukrainians so well that they are not averse to fighting again !!!! Something needs to be changed!!!

    Meanwhile, their commander-in-chief was rewarding some mongrel. I'm not lying. Really some unprepossessing little dog.

    Yes, it was a no brainer. That it was a provocation. I really want to bite, but ..... No. It didn’t work out. And the Russian Defense Ministry only wants to wish to keep track of it in the future. And respond in time to such provocations.
    For those who are not understanding. On the fingers. Can you imagine the hype about the capture of Serpent's Island on the eve of May 9? The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has practically no right to make mistakes. This is balancing on the edge of the possible. yes

    A small, flat island that can be shot through.
    In real life, whoever has something long-range is the owner there. Sweeps everything easily.
    which was shown earlier.

    The Doctor of Military Science is very disappointing.
    If we all have such doctors, then I will not go to the doctor again. Never.
    Even people far from war and analytics, such as me, for example, understand that Serpentine is by no means just a piece of land in the middle of the sea. Look at the map, read summaries and latest news.
    Add two plus two. And do not forget about the supply of weapons to Ukraine, the paths of which are blocked.
    The doctor's idea about attacks "on infrastructure facilities in the border areas" is also interesting. What the hell is a publicity stunt? Which!? The Nazis simply work off the money they receive, along the way satisfying their wonderful instincts to shit where you can’t profit. You know, like a dog: what cannot be eaten or barked, then you need to piss.
    And the West does not need to show at all that they still have combat-ready formations, the West already knows everything. And even more. And weapons will be delivered to the last opportunity.

    The fact that the Russian leadership and the Ministry of Defense is somehow at least strangely pursuing this NWO is becoming more and more obvious. Indecisive half-measures with an eye to the enemy West, not entirely clear limitations of the military contingent and equipment, often unjustified by the so-called. "brotherhood" to the detriment of the operational development of the "operation", reverse maneuvers in the territories already occupied, insufficient (IMHO) use of the capabilities of the airborne forces and the strike (ground) missile component, the weak security of our border regions, some permanent verbal warnings instead of real destructive actions ... And many more questions .. In "white gloves" this war with the Nazi so-called. Ukraine and the enemy West going for broke will be quite difficult to complete successfully.

    Yes, and the goat is clear. The world will soon go on a diet. So they are trying to take out more bread. And here is some kind of island. Like a thorn in the eye. You can’t take it out by a piece of iron - there are no locomotives. You can’t accelerate along the Danube either. Only by sea And then some kind of island. Like a pimple on your ass. It covers everything. For the Ukrainians themselves, he didn’t rest anywhere. But where will the Britons eat without grain? So they thought up these fools. Who should be paid. Obviously. The most they can count on is wreaths at a discount laughing

    And I wonder what the person who climbs into a helicopter or a boat and flies to storm the Serpent is thinking about.
