Ukraine's army has new capabilities after destroying Russian positions in western Crimea - military expert Selezniov

Military expert Vladyslav Selezniov has described Ukraine's capabilities after destruction of Russian position in Tarkhankut. He believes that a future battlefield is being created in Crimea

He said this on Espreso TV. 

"In Crimea, there is a strategy of small cuts, irritating the enemy and creating a battlefield for the future. We already have the ability to massively strike the military infrastructure of the Russian army in Crimea with 'kamikaze' drones, and this creates a lot of problems for them. After the enemy's position in the western part of Crimea, the S-400 complex near the Mayak on Cape Tarkhankut, was destroyed, we got a gate through which our drones can fly," Selezniov explained.

According to the expert, the Russians will bring a new air defense system to the cape to close the capabilities of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

"But what happened for the first time will definitely happen again," Selezniov emphasized.

He added that the early fall in Crimea will be accompanied by the destruction of Russian forces. 

"The number of enemy targets on the territory of Crimea is considerable. Independent journalists have counted 232 targets, while behind the scenes they say that there are up to five hundred. All of them are legitimate targets, because they work to strengthen the defense and combat capabilities of the Russian occupation contingent operating in Crimea and Sevastopol. The landing of Ukrainian troops in Crimea is an information and forceful action that demonstrates to the residents of Crimea that Ukraine will soon be in Crimea," emphasized Selezniov.

  • Explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Crimea on Wednesday, August 23. A Russian long- and medium-range S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system was destroyed at a military facility on Cape Tarkhankut.

  • On August 24, journalist Yuriy Butusov, citing his own sources, wrote that the S-400 system was allegedly hit on August 23 by a Neptune cruise missile from the Ukrainian Navy.
