    ...Moscow will do everything necessary to stop the threats.

    Words words. What is your sweetness?
    The words are gone, the filth remains.

    The fact that the beach was spoiled is obvious.
    But the fact that this trench will allow something to be protected is highly doubtful.

    It's time to strengthen the protection and patrolling of strategic objects of Crimea, as well as the territory along the perimeter of the peninsula from the west and north, by the forces of the Russian Guard and the people's militia, so to speak, to settle in and strengthen defensive positions, conduct exercises, practice tactical military operations for the defense of Crimea. As Alexander Suvorov taught:

    It’s hard to learn, easy in battle.

    These are such fortifications in the Crimea - these bags are under 155mm shelling. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are building reinforced concrete sections of fortifications and shelters with a half-meter wall and more than reinforced concrete, which is why it’s impossible to smoke for so long. And for the sake of show, we have such ditches with bags and cut them with kickbacks without fail. From the memoirs of WWII. The army commander arrived at the equipped line with dugouts with such a frail overlap. So he forced the head of construction to climb into the dugout, and he himself took a machine gun to fire at the ceiling. The lesson was learned for a long time. Looks like some clarification needs to be done here.
