"Russia's infrastructure will not burn itself down": Navy spokesman Pletenchuk on Crimea strikes
Ukraine will keep striking targets in temporarily Russian-occupied Crimea, as one key component in its strategy
Captain Dmytro Pletenchuk, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"The strategy is unlikely to change. I'm not ready to give any absolute forecasts about the strategy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, because this is a higher level. But we have not changed our plans. Most likely, the strikes will continue. Russian infrastructure in Crimea will not burn itself down. The bridge will not destroy itself, although this is questionable. Ships are more difficult, they usually have positive buoyancy and need help," he said.
The Ukrainian Navy spokesperson said that the Russian air defense system is working very hard in the south.
"The Russian PSYOP is pushing the narrative that the south will be completely ceded under the agreements. I hear this often, with a frequency of several months or six months," he added.
