Ukraine can attack Russian forces anywhere in Black Sea, they have no safe zone - naval expert
Defense Express naval expert Volodymyr Zablotskyi says that the Ukrainian army has the means to attack Russian troops anywhere in the Black Sea, and they no longer have a comfort zone of safety
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"There is no Admiral Makarov frigate on combat duty, no carriers, but this does not mean that they are not in service and cannot be deployed in the near future. Unfortunately, this is not the case, unfortunately, they still retain a certain potential, and even despite the famous destruction of a train with Kalibrs at a station in Crimea, these missiles are still in service and submarines in the southern bay occasionally take them on board," the naval expert noted.
However, he added that the situation is now completely different from what it was a year ago, and Ukraine has the means and forces to attack Russian forces anywhere in the Black Sea, the Russian army no longer has a comfort zone.
"I would like to note that only in recent days, after this famous air attack of drones and cruise missiles on Sevastopol took place, almost simultaneously, two patrol boats - Vasily Bykov and Sergey Kotov - were attacked by unmanned naval vessels, and one of them was probably damaged, because the video released by the Ministry of Defense yesterday shows that the kamikaze boat came really close, and then the video cuts, which happens when a boat's warhead is detonated," he emphasized.
Attacks on Russian ships
On the night of September 13, Russia accused Ukraine of a massive missile attack on a shipyard in Sevastopol and damage to two ships. Ukrainian intelligence confirmed that a large amphibious assault ship and a Russian submarine were hit.
Ukrainian guerrillas also helped attack Russian vessels. They collect information and pass it on to Ukraine's special services.
The special operation to destroy the Rostov-on-Don submarine and the Minsk landing ship was carried out thanks to the Special Operations Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Another recent attack took place on September 14. Then the Ukrainian Defense Forces attacked two Project 22160 patrol ships of the Vasily Bykov type of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
Then the Ukrainian experimental drone Sea Baby shot down the Russian missile ship Samum.
