Ukraine’s defense intel calls destruction of oil terminal in occupied Crimea ‘planned work’

The relevant statement was made by Andrii Yusov, the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Currently, we are talking about the continuation of the planned work of Ukraine’s security and defense forces to demilitarize the Crimean peninsula from Russian invaders. Further details will definitely be provided a little bit later,” Yusov told.

He emphasized that the Ukrainian state, the resistance movement, and all components of Ukraine’s security and defense forces are working in Crime absolutely legally, in accordance with international law, and within the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine.
