Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked Russian drilling platforms in the Black Sea, suffering losses


The armed forces of Ukraine attacked Russian drilling rigs and a block conductor at the Odessa field in the Black Sea. Kyiv considers this territory its economic zone. The attack could be carried out by boats of the Ukrainian Navy or tactical aviation of Ukraine.


The incident occurred on June 20 at 8 am, as reported by the head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov.

I have been in touch with colleagues from the Ministry of Defense, the Federal Security Service since the morning, we are working primarily on saving people

- Aksenov noted in his telegram channel.

Of the 12 people on the platforms, five were rescued. Two victims have severe burns, one has a severe shrapnel wound. The fate of the remaining seven people is still unknown.


The strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the facilities of Chornomorneftegaz caused the greatest damage to the BK-1 platform, there were no casualties on the BK-2 and BK-3 platforms.

At the same time, only one of the four Ukrainian aircraft that allegedly carried out the attack returned to the airfield.

Meanwhile, three days ago, a Ukrainian armored boat attacked the Russian tug "Vasily Bekh" 40 km from Zmeiny Island, which continues to be attacked by tactical aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Thus, the attack on the oil platform became the second case of an attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Russian civilian targets in the Black Sea in a week. It is likely that Kyiv, unable to turn the tide on the battlefield, is changing its tactics in this direction and moving on to terrorist acts.

    I read and think, where is our fleet, where is the aviation from our "unsinkable aircraft carrier" of Crimea?
    Yet, as we were told, everything is under control, and we dominate the Black Sea. request

      there are no minesweepers, because billions go down to repair Kuzi, no minesweepers = the fleet is not combat-ready, and the Ukrofascists know the map of minefields and manage their inconspicuous mosquito fleet on the Black Sea ... and we have grief experts who all advocate for super-large surface ships you can’t hide them

      Sarcasm is expected, but unproductive.
      Suppose an aircraft carrier would be in the Black Sea. And what could he change? Most likely it would have been damaged and would have gone to Sevastopol. This is at best.
      The strength of aircraft carriers in an aviation group. And it is stronger from the Crimea. Another thing is that it or not, or it is not enough.
      In my opinion, military operations at sea show that the aircraft carrier on the Black Sea is redundant. There are no landing operations, he is unable to cover something. Rather, he himself needs cover.
      I repeat. Capital ships are "value in themselves". Nobody will risk them. This means that their real value in a limited theater is doubtful.
      "Dominance" in the theater of operations is doubtful in any case. It is said that Lloyd George sent an officer to ask Clemenceau "Is it true that the French have learned to advance without loss?" The Lion of France Clemenceau replied "Tell Lloyd George he's a fool!"
      Losses were and will be. I would put the question differently. What did the cruiser Moscow do off the coast of the enemy? Performed air defense? I couldn't protect myself... Why do oil or gas production continue on drilling rigs? Nobody knows that there is a war going on?

        Is there a war going on? And the bourgeoisie does not care about this fact. For the sake of profit, he is ready to go to any crime. The life and health of drilling personnel are not important to him.

      Missiles can also be brought against an aircraft carrier, for example from Denmark ...
      Right now, Denmark, if we assume that it was she who delivered naval missiles to Ukraine, staged a man-made disaster on a drilling platform in the Black Sea. As they say in the media, the fire went to the well and it is impossible to extinguish it. A huge torch burns in the Black Sea. Hey Greens! Who is responsible for punishing those who arrange man-made disasters? Greta Thunberg or Annalena Berbochka? Punish Denmark for organizing a terrorist attack on a drilling platform!

    you guys are asking stupid questions. You look where and when the authorities of the Russian Federation were interested in the safety of the civilian population: to beat the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the border villages - and let it not reach the Kremlin, okay, hundreds of shells of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been firing in Donetsk for 8 years and four months (and the Donetsk people are mostly citizens of the Russian Federation ) well, let it be, we are in the Kremlin, it doesn’t reach us .. These towers are within reach of both the aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and even some missile systems, and the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can bomb civilians without a twinge of conscience has been known for 8 years and now it got even worse, but, as we can see, no one even thought about how to protect the oil workers .. Again, the logic is simple: it doesn’t reach us ..

    The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine uses the tactics of "roaming aircraft", when aircraft take off from one airfield and land on another. According to some Ukrainian and Russian sources, a unit of tactical aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine operates in the Zmeiny area, there are also Bayraktar TB2 attack drones near Odessa and a boat group with missile weapons supplied from the West. A high-precision Onyx missile from the Bastion coastal missile system hit the Artsyz airfield in the Odessa region, destroying the Bayraktar TB2 drone control station. Let's hope that the rest of the weapons will be found and destroyed.

      There are no security platforms. They are civilian objects. In addition, if the plane flies "low-low", then it is quite difficult to detect it. Example: as shown by our attack helicopters and attack aircraft on TV. In general, they crept up on an object without air defense, fired and fled. What is there to be surprised.

    There are 24 hours in a day. Do you propose to keep aviation constantly in the air above the drilling rigs and the island? Measure the distance from Romania, where the Ukrops are based, and from the Crimea. To be ahead of them, what needs to be done? What does your higher legal education tell you?

      the problem of naval missile-carrying aviation is deep, firstly, Kuzya eats all the money, so the MRA has not been tritely replenished for 30 years, and secondly, the admirals who have ruined the fleet generally underestimate aviation, they don’t even need minesweepers, because there the construction of HP can’t really be crowded, and there is no chic admiral’s cabin, but they believe the plane, but generally makes them vomit, there is no one to build at attention

          the displacement of the kuzya is almost half of the surface fleet of the Russian Federation, respectively, its content affects the navy quite strongly, in other words, by selling the kuzya, you can double the surface fleet without additional budget costs and still remain for aviation

        ships do not have a normal air defense system because fleet management is entrusted to admirals who are not able to organize order control of design and acceptance of combat-capable systems (and kickbacks too) ... why is there no drill? I already noted you earlier, because Kuzya eats all the money ..... why the operation to liberate Odessa was not carried out, because because of Kuzi we lack 4000 soldiers and officers in the infantry

    Do we have Estonians serving there? Ukraine has been dealing with terrorism as a daily activity since 2014. Did it come after 8 years? The use of DRGs by Ukraine in various fields and directions will soon be celebrating their tenth anniversary, and here we are ... here they are! noted a change in tactics.... Under the nose of Odessa are platforms for activities that Ukraine has contested since the transition of Crimea to Russia, and we hoped that they would be safe? M-yes .... We slow down .... request

          in the ocean, both AWACS and air defense and flat and air defense are very weak and practically ineffective, and air defense drills are still somehow, but bad and air defense at all, for the implementation of AWACS ha in the Black Sea, more A50 and A100 aircraft are needed, and they can be count your fingers, Russia seems to have built only one in 30 years, and then from Soviet unfinished projects, because all the money is eaten up by Kuzya, unnecessary in billions

    Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked Russian drilling platforms in the Black Sea, suffering losses

    How is this known? If the Black Sea Fleet does not even know for sure where these platforms were attacked from and with what, as well as the previously sunk flagship Moscow and the BDK. And why did these facilities end up unguarded in wartime? It looks like the Black Sea Fleet is a complete mess, helplessness and lack of light. Becomes restless for the Crimean bridge however. Well, "missed" the attack, so at least they answered adequately. For example, having bombed all Ukrainian gas fields. And they have them, they produce almost 20 billion cubic meters a year. half of your needs. So no, they sent a couple of missiles to the airfield near Odessa, allegedly destroying the bayraktars there. This airfield should have been rendered unusable long ago, like all the others, along with all aircraft in Ukraine. But it turns out not. As before, the planes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine take off and land from somewhere and bomb our troops. It is not clear why we are fighting so incompetently and what kind of war this is so incomprehensible.
