Everything happened according to plan. So, in the plan for June 30, the following points were indicated:
– Bring down Gazprom shares by at least 30%
– Leave Snake Island, losing almost all the equipment and military along the way, thereby losing the ability of the air defense system to provide protection for the landing in the Odessa and Nikolaev direction.
– Sink the landing craft with a mine.
– Finally, do not miss and get into the shit-nuclear suitcase.
The remaining points of the program for June 30 are specified.
Now let’s be serious.
Snake Island was a strategic target of the Russian Federation.
It was supposed to be a stronghold “sea point”, necessary as an instrument of control over the entire southern direction.
So, through the air defense system, Russia planned to land troops in Nikolaev, Odessa, and then probably in Transnistria, since the built-up defense system just created a “protected” zone with a clear overlap on the territory of Moldova.
The flight from Zmiinoye actually makes it impossible to transfer troops deep into the southern direction, for which, as we remember, the case of Transnistria was activated and one of the bridges in the “Odessa direction” was blown up.
Now propaganda will try hard to pretend that Serpentine was never a strategic point, but it was.
Moreover, it also carried a “sacred meaning”. One of the ideologists of Russian fascism, Dugin, wrote about this. The idea is in the “philosophical grave” of the Snake, as a result of which Dugin himself said that whoever controls the Snake controls the course of history.
Fake with Snake Island
Today I collect attempts by the Russian Federation to justify itself for fleeing from Snake Island.
The most moronic exposure belongs to the “Fight Against Fake” channel.
I quote verbatim. Attention:
Fake: Russian troops left Zmeiny Island, unable to withstand the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Ukrainian sources and Western media, such as the New York Times, write about this.
Truth: In fact, smoke is traces of the destruction of the remains of equipment and ammunition. This is reported, including Ukrainian sources.
The object is indeed of strategic importance, but at the moment it has fulfilled its role of controlling the airspace, and given the constant attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, large resources were spent on its retention.
Serpentine is an island of a volcanic type, on which there is practically no vegetation and shelters, and it is difficult to keep it in conditions of open confrontation. At the same time, the Russian garrison successfully withstood several attacks, despite regular information attacks by the Ukrainian leadership, there is not a single confirmed report of successful operations.
Nevertheless, according to a statement made earlier by the Russian Ministry of Defense about the main priority on the lives of soldiers and officers of the RF Armed Forces, the decision was made to remove the garrison from the island in order to avoid losses.
The Ukrainian side is trying to turn this into a victory, including with the help of international media, but there are no prerequisites for this.
The Ministry of Defense noted that this step will avoid provocations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and accusations against the Russian Federation about creating obstacles to the export of grain to the ports of third countries.
So the Z-channel in the exposure confirmed that the Russians fled because they could not withstand the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, or did it seem to me?
