Army General, former Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine Mykola Malomuzh believes that a comprehensive, simultaneous offensive is the only way to liberate Crimea from occupying Russian troops

He spoke about this on Espreso TV.

"To launch a new and unexpected strategy of warfare, the command needs to focus on more than just traditional tasks: defending borders and destroying reserves are crucial today," said Malomuzh. "The key is to change our strategy to a rapid response that catches the enemy off guard, rather than the prolonged, intense assaults we saw in 2023. One potential scenario involves breaking through the southern corridor."

According to General Malomuzh, the Ukrainian Defense Forces already have a foothold on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region. However, they need to deploy powerful groups to push the enemy out.

"Full-scale strikes involving F-16 fighter jets targeting all sites across Crimea and the isthmus, missile systems coordinated with aviation; deploying long-range artillery systems for action within Crimea. This includes Special Operations Forces, airborne forces, and special units from our intelligence and security services conducting sabotage operations under the cover of night – all executed simultaneously within a matter of hours. 

This approach will create what I'd call an 'Armageddon' scenario for the Russians, disrupting their logistics routes and destroying key infrastructure throughout Crimea. It's a necessary step for true liberation, not just a defense tactic forced upon us by Russia," summarized the former head of Ukraine's Foreign Intelligence Service.

  • During the night of May 15, explosions rocked the temporarily occupied city of Sevastopol in Crimea. An attack on the Belbek airfield destroyed two MiG-31 fighters and the burning down of a fuel and lubricant depot.

  • Members of the Atesh guerrilla movement reported that occupying Russian troops in Crimea are relocating aircraft to closed airfields due to fears of new missile strikes from Ukraine.
