Ukraine crisis: Ukraine’s military launches devastating offensive on Snake Island in the Black Sea, inflicting major losses to the Russian army




Ukraine’s military has launched a devastating offensive on Snake Island in the Black Sea, inflicting major losses to the Russian army.

The surprise offensive caused significant damage to Russian installations on the island.

Snake Island is of high strategic value for both sides, as the mass of land sits about 80mi off Ukraine’s southern coast and can be used as a staging area.

Ukraine controls the water surrounding the island, having sunk the Moksva, Russia’s flagship vessel in the area, and more recently, a transport ship carrying men and equipment. Any Russian vessel attempting to traverse the stretch of water between the island and Ukraine’s coast is likely to end up in Davy Jones’ Locker, where it belongs.
