Ukraine's top official suggests two options for Russian Black Sea Fleet
Secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov has named two options for the future of the Russian Black Sea Fleet: liquidation will be either voluntary or forced
Danilov wrote about this on the social network X (Twitter).
According to him, the best option for Russia would be to voluntarily liquidate the Black Sea Fleet by sinking it.
"The best and safest way to preserve the integrity of the property and economic complex of the city of Akhtiar (old name - Sevastopol) and the surrounding areas is voluntary sinking. The famous Russian military reflection - the destruction of one's own fleet when the enemy approaches - should have continuity in time and a tradition of succession," Danilov said.
Ukraine’s top security official added that there is also a forced liquidation option: "The Russian Black Sea Fleet will be sliced up like salami: the process is painful, but the Ukrainian Armed Forces launch precision strikes exclusively on military infrastructure."
In his post Danilov calls Sevastopol Akhtiar, which is the historical name of the city.
On September 22, powerful explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Crimea. The Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed the strike on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.
