Speaker of Ukrainian Navy notes that occupiers move ships to Tuapse as Ukraine continues attacks on Russian Black Sea Fleet
Russia's loss of two more landing ships in the temporarily occupied Crimea was very significant and effective for Ukraine. Recent attacks on the Black Sea Fleet have forced the enemy to move the ships hundreds of kilometers to their own territory.
In particular, the occupiers began sending ships to the port of Tuapse in the Krasnodar Territory of the Russian Federation. This was stated by Dmytro Pletenchuk, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, during a TV marathon.
"Those two landing ships are not so big, but they are not small either. And considering where they were standing, this was another significant loss for the Russians. And one of the results of our attacks is another movement of ships. Now they have reached Tuapse," he said.
According to him, the occupiers failed to fully solve the logistics problems, and now they are forced to change the place of berthing of ships, thus responding to the dangers at sea created by the Ukrainian Defense Forces.
"I think that they will further move to the coast of Georgia," Pletenchuk suggested.
He added that for Ukraine, the highest priority targets are Russian cruise missile carriers, which are now mostly involved in hostilities. And it was these ships that the occupiers were the first to relocate from the coast of Crimea after the last Ukrainian attack. In particular, 10 ships were sent to Novorossiysk.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, on November 10, the Main Intelligence Directorate attacked the Black Sea Fleet vessels in Crimea. Two small enemy landing boats with crew and armored vehicles on board were hit by naval drones.
DIU spokesman Andriy Yusov noted that the operation was "extremely successful" for Ukraine. According to him, the intelligence officers had been preparing it for a long time very carefully, and as a result of the attack, not only the boats went down but also the carriers of the air defense systems that were supposed to cover other occupiers' vessels on the peninsula were destroyed.
