"Russians no longer control the sea": DIU shares details of Black Sea operations. Video

DIU offisers on the landing on Cape Tarkhankut and return of Boyko towers

The Black Sea is Russia's Achilles' heel. This is evidenced by the successful special operations of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine to land special forces on Cape Tarkhankut and return the Boyko towers to Ukrainian control. Ukrainian intelligence officers feel confident in the Black Sea and declare that Russia no longer controls it.

The DIU intelligence officers conducting operations in the Black Sea revealed the details of their sea campaigns in a new video by the Ukrainskyi Svidok (Ukrainian Witness) project. They promise to do everything to bring Crimea home.

A scout with the call sign Tymur, who headed the Tarkhankut operation, and the commander of the Bratstvo (Brotherhood) special forces unit with the call signBorghese spoke about their experiences.

The operation began at night. According to Borghese, his unit's special forces moved on rubber boats and jet skis, which made them difficult to spot.

"The Black Sea is safe at night, the enemy is helpless there. The open sea is a huge area, it is very difficult to scan... The sea is very big and it is very difficult to see anything. It is almost impossible to find and calculate the target because the drones' batteries do not have enough power," Borghese said.

The next day, at dawn, Russian aviation began targeting Ukrainian special forces but to no avail.

"They worked very hard but unsuccessfully," Borghese added.

According to him, since the operation was large-scale, there were many boats in the sea, and the battle itself was a real naval battle, during which the special forces tried to hit enemy aircraft with man-portable air defense systems.

"They opened fire at the planes with man-portable air defense systems, took them with them on boats to go to the aid of other boats... It is very difficult to shoot at planes, and almost impossible to hit with MANPADS, but it scares the pilots and they run away. They were shooting at the planes from the towers. The planes tried to destroy our boats, but they failed," Borghese said.

According to the scout, it was originally planned to take the towers by storm as Russian occupation troops were stationed there. But by the time they arrived, there was no one on the towers.

"Perhaps the enemy got the information and left, maybe there were other reasons, but there were no fighters there, so we managed to take it without a fight," Borghese explained.

But the occupants, fleeing from the towers, heavily mined them.

"Everything there is covered with mines. Drawers, ropes on the floor, half-open dry rations, doors, it's a continuous minefield. At the moment, they are not completely cleared of mines because there are a lot of them. Our engineers still have to work there," the scout said.

The scout with the call sign Tymur, who commanded the operation, spoke about the Tarkhankut operation codenamed "Awakening of Power". He emphasized that it was a joint effort of the Special Forces and Crimeans.

"We had contact with the enemy. But in the end, the Russians fled, they are very good at it. Our guys accomplished their tasks. Crimean partisans helped them in this," Tymur said.

The DIU scouts are convinced that they will be able to drive the occupiers out of Crimea.

"We have one more barrier by sea and that's it. We will make sure that Crimea is at home. We will do it, no matter how long it takes," Tymur emphasized.
