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.

Russian propagandists are describing
today’s missile attack on the residential areas of Kyiv as ‘staged’, as
they cannot justify them.
The relevant statement was made by the Center for Countering
Disinformation (CCD) at the Ukrainian National Security and Defense
Council (NSDC) on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Russian ‘journalists’ are describing today’s missile strike on the
apartment block in Kyiv as ‘intentionally staged by the Kyiv regime to
create the right image for the West in order to request more weapons’,”
the report states.

According to the CCD, Russian ‘military reporters’ and propagandists
follow a well-organized scheme: propagandists report on the future
shelling of a certain position by the Ukrainian military; Russian troops
fire at this position in a week or so; Russian ‘military reporters’ and
‘journalists’ write articles and film video materials, referring to
their previous reports on the upcoming strikes.

At the same time, rashists call anything that they cannot explain logically as ‘staged’.

The CCD stressed that the enemy is well prepared and had been brainwashing the Russian people for many years.





A reminder that, in the morning of June 26, 2022, the Russian
military launched missile strikes on Kyiv’s Shevchenkivskyi District. A
9-storey apartment block was hit with the Russian missile. One civilian
was killed and six injured. Four of them, including a 7-year-old girl,
were taken to hospital.
