"As a result of our active actions to strike the enemy naval forces, the group of warships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation was pushed back at a distance of more than 100 kilometers from the Ukrainian coast. Trying to regain control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea, the enemy was forced to change tactics: deployed Bal and Bastion coastal missile systems in Crimea and Kherson region, redeploys additional forces to Zmiinyi Island," the press service of the Navy Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.
As noted, the group of approximately 30 ships and submarines of the Russian Federation continue to block civilian navigation.
The situation in the northwestern part of the Black Sea remains difficult.
"We have deprived the Russian Black Sea Fleet of full control over the northwestern part of the Black Sea, which has become a ‘gray zone’. At the same time, the enemy adopted our tactics and tries to regain control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea with the use of coastal missile systems and air-launched cruise missiles," the Ukrainian Navy informs.
It is noted that the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the leadership of the state take measures to unblock the seaports of Ukraine and organize the supply of Ukrainian products to the countries in need.
