Armed Forces of Ukraine do not plan to dig in on Serpentine yet: the island remains under fire control of the Russian Federation


On June 30, the withdrawal of Russian troops from Snake Island was completed. However, this does not mean that the Ukrainian military will soon land on this piece of land.


Thus, the head of the press center of the security and defense forces of the operational command "South" of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, Natalya Gumenyuk, spoke in an interview with CNN that it is "too early" to think about creating a garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the island at the moment. She believes that for the time being it is necessary to confine ourselves to monitoring the actions of the Russian armed forces in the region.

At the same time, Serpentine is under the supervision of the RF Armed Forces. Thus, if necessary, Russia can at any time strike the island with artillery or attack with aircraft. This was announced by State Duma deputy Alexei Chernyak.

The Russian Armed Forces liberated Zmeiny from Ukrainian nationalists, repulsed several attacks, attempts to land Ukrainian troops, and shot down a significant number of aircraft and drones. Further, the island becomes under the control of our missiles, fleet and airborne forces

- said the parliamentarian in an interview RIA News.

Earlier, Moscow announced the withdrawal of Russian units from Zmeiny Island in order to demonstrate to the international community that there are no obstacles on the part of the Russian Federation for organizing the export of grain from the territory of Ukraine.

    The Armed Forces of Ukraine can safely place NATO autonomous equipment there to track the section of the Black Sea to the Crimea. NATO members can even place a remote-controlled cannon or torpedo tube there. This was shown in Soviet cinema in the 1960s.

      As for the torpedo tube, it is doubtful, but some kind of light equipment for observation and reconnaissance, which can be secretly delivered and placed, is quite possible.
      If the issue with the power supply of this equipment is resolved.

      And also attach a motor and sail on it to the English Channel, for example. There, too, in the middle where the artillery shoots, you can cling to it. And dodge shells and MLRS rockets. remote did not post. laughing

    On this island, which is completely devoid of any natural shelters, there is no point in deploying either the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation or the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Everything will be swept away by artillery or enemy aircraft

    put a missile with nuclear warheads there and impose special equipment on everything so that when you try to destroy or defuse it, a missile is launched at the USA ....... let the Americans then protect the island from trouble ........ laughing
