Enemy plotting provocation with captured Ukrainian boat near Zmiinyi Island – OC ‘South’

Ukrinform
A small armored artillery boat of the Ukrainian Navy, captured by the Russians in Berdiansk at the beginning of the full-scale invasion, was spotted near Zmiinyi Island.

"One of the small armored artillery boats of the Ukrainian Navy, captured by ruscists in Berdiansk at the beginning of the invasion, was spotted near Zmiinyi Island," the Operational Command "South" posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

The command considers that the enemy is likely to try to use the boat, flying the Ukrainian flag, in its provocations with the shelling of foreign civilian vessels and, perhaps, coastal areas of Ukraine and other countries of the Black Sea region.

As reported, Russian troops strengthen their forces on Zmiinyi Island to control the sea routes in the northwestern part of the Black Sea and deployed S-400 missile systems.

On February 24, Russian president Putin launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, massively fire on residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.

The United States, the European Union, and other countries have imposed sanctions on Russia, making its international isolation grow by the day.
