Cynical practice: Humeniuk told how the occupiers are trying to hide their ships near Crimea
In order to protect their warships, the Russian invaders created a buffer zone in the Kerch Strait. There, the enemy hid its warships among civilian vessels to protect them from attacks by Ukrainian drones and missiles.
This was reported by Natalia Humeniuk, a spokeswoman for the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, on the air of the United News telethon. She noted that the occupiers at sea are as cynical about hiding behind civilian vessels as they are about hiding behind civilians on land.
"The same observation area that they formed near the Kerch Strait, ostensibly to inspect civilian vessels, is actually a buffer zone where they accumulate civilian vessels to have such a barrier. They always use civilians and civilian shipping," said the spokeswoman.
Humeniuk noted that the invaders have already redeployed large landing ships to Novorossiysk. Boats of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and the Russian Border Guard Service are also heading there.
She noted that the occupiers are now realizing that the Crimean bays, in particular in Sevastopol, are no longer safe.
The Ukrainian air force attacked the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at noon on Friday, September 22. The attack was carried out by British Storm Shadow missiles. The consequences of another "cotton" have already been published online. It is noted that the debris after the missile strike on the Black Sea Fleet headquarters is scattered for hundreds of meters.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, on September 14, the military counterintelligence of the SBU and the Ukrainian Navy conducted a unique special operation near Yevpatoria. The Russian air defense system Triumph worth 1.2 billion US dollars was destroyed. According to unconfirmed reports, drones and Neptune missiles were used to effectively target the target.
