Ukrainian military launch over 10 accurate strikes on Snake Island

Last night the Ukrainian military launched more than 10 accurate strikes on Snake [Zmiinyi] Island.
The relevant statement was made by Head of the United
Coordinating Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces Natalia
Humeniuk during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We continue a [military]
operation on Snake Island. Last night more than 10 accurate strikes were
launched on the island. We are checking the results now, but we have
already been informed that one more Pantsir-S1 air defense missile gun
system was hit,” Humeniuk told.

In her words, there are adverse weather conditions in the Black Sea
at the moment. Thus, the enemy left two missile ships carrying 16 cruise
missiles on duty.

A reminder that, on June 22, 2022, Chief of the Main Intelligence
Directorate at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry Kyrylo Budanov stated that
Ukraine Army’s military operation on Snake Island will last until the
island is fully liberated from Russian invaders.
