Russian troops left Snake Island

Today is a holiday in Kyiv, Zelensky is celebrating the "great victory" in connection with the "liberation" of the Snake Island in the Black Sea. True, there is no merit of the Ukrainian military in this, the Russian garrison left the island voluntarily.

The information that Russian troops left Zmeiny was published by a number of Russian TG channels, and then confirmed by the Ministry of Defense. According to the military, the island was left as a gesture of goodwill for the organization of humanitarian corridors and the export of grain from Odessa. Now Kyiv must clear the coast, as Zelensky promised, as Russia has removed the last obstacle preventing it.



The Russian Federation does not interfere with the efforts of the UN to organize a humanitarian corridor for the export of agricultural products from the territory of Ukraine (...) Now the word is up to the Ukrainian side, which still does not clear the Black Sea coast from its coast, including port waters

- it is spoken in the message of the Ministry of Defense.

According to the report, the garrison left the island on 30 June. Some Internet resources already in the morning reported on an attempt by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack Serpentine. It was reported that Russia allegedly lost one Pantsir-S MANPADS.

Just a couple of days ago, information was received from Ukrainian sources that Zelensky gave two weeks to the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to capture Zmeinoye with a landing. In Kyiv, they plan to pass it off as a "big victory" against the backdrop of a complete failure in the Donbass. The island allows you to control not only Odessa, but also the mouth of the Danube.

            Of course it will! Under the current conditions (deliveries of new weapons to Kuev, it makes no sense to keep Father Serpentine, only to lose people. And ukrov will be beaten there regularly!

              This is not our method. How about a goodwill gesture? Now you can’t really touch it, otherwise they will say that it’s impossible to trawl the fairway and navigate ships under fire. Now there will be, on our side, a gray zone where you cannot shoot.

                To be honest, I am shocked by this news.

                REFERENCE
                "Snake" is a small island in the Black Sea, located on the border of Romania and Ukraine.
                The legal island belongs to the Izmail district of the Odessa region. But it was not always so. For many years, "Snake" passed from hand to hand. It belonged to the Republic of Ingushetia, then the Turks, then the Romanians. The issue was finally resolved after the Second World War, and finally “Snake” became part of the USSR.
                The island, with its coastal zone, is rich in minerals, oil and gas, but Kyiv was unable to develop them.

                MILITARY
                "Snake" is the key to the Crimea, as well as to Odessa and Romania.
                In the post-Soviet period, according to Russian intelligence, earlier NATO equipment was based on Zmein, which made it possible to correct the operation of American Tomahawk-type cruise missiles.

                For the Russian army, control over this island "Snake" completely blocks all Ukrainian military and merchant ships, and it is also a kind of springboard for the NVO for a possible further offensive of Russian troops on Odessa.

                On the island, you can place a Russian air defense system, now approaching Russia to NATO borders on its own. After all, from the “Snake” NATO member Romania is within easy reach. Yes, and NATO ships conducting exercises in the Black Sea will no longer feel comfortable.

                There is also another factor - this is the containment of the Romanian authorities, who have long laid their eyes on this small island of strategic and economic significance and will certainly take advantage of the current situation in the future to its ANNEXATION from Ukraine.

                  What can you do, with the advent of harpoons from the Ukrainians, it became impossible to supply the island. But if the Ukrainians gain a foothold there, Sevastopol will already be in the affected area with the same harpoons.

                    What if the Harpoon kids are moved to the island? How far to the Crimean bridge? Can it be reached with a howitzer or MLRS now? What about Dot U? It's a pity "Moscow" and other ships are here. And in your media (more precisely Channel One) nothing, nothing.
                    To be honest, I don’t understand what kind of special operation is when the first target is not Zelensky, and his entourage. I can name another - a hasty military operation. The special is prepared for a long time and does not last long.

                      It is possible to move, but they also need to be protected there. Our air defense could not protect the Serpentine and there were many arrivals on it.
                      There are 260 km to Sevastopol, with a harpoon range of 300 km.
                      Tochka, howitzers and MLRS (with those missiles that Ukry received) will not reach the Crimean bridge and Sevastopol.
                      The Crimean bridge cannot be destroyed with harpoons. the main supports are there, and they will not suffer too much from such a weak explosion.
                      And on the bridge it was possible to smack from land (for example, from Zaporozhye), Serpentine has nothing to do with it, Serpentine is about Sevastopol.

                        As I understand it, Russia does not own the Black Sea because of AWACS and drones. Can AWACS be seen there in flyradar? And what prevents a NATO helicopter from landing? Strike?

                          The air over the Black Sea is not completely controlled. Yes, a helicopter at low altitude and modern (low-altitude) cruise missiles can fly there.
                          It is unlikely that AWACS can be seen in flyradar, it most likely goes there with transponders turned off.

                          But not when the enemy has a MLRS capable of getting there.
                          Otherwise, the island becomes a large mass grave.
                          Thanks to the United States, Ukraine has such a system.
                          And there have already been test launches in the Donbass.
                          And if the helicopters and air defense drones of the island are shot down at once, it is unrealistic to completely shoot down a volley of MLRS.

                          Yes, it is clear that the withdrawal of allied troops from the island "Snake" is a measure on the part of Russia FORCED!

                          However, it’s also impossible to name a STRATEGIC VICTORY of Russia over the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this place on the occasion of the withdrawal of Russian troops from Snake Island!

                          In war, one must be able to think flexibly and respond to the situation. Integrity only hurts. The main thing is victory. Read how Kutuzov fought with different opponents. He fooled his head so that no one understood what he was doing. But he always won.

                          Well, if the Ukrainians place something worthwhile on the island and capable of threatening us from there, for example, anti-ship missiles, air defense or Himarsy, then this is a completely justified cost goal for Iskander. And if Sashko and Mykola conditionally sit there to guard the flag, then it’s a pity to spend on them and Tornado because there is no threat from them, well, maybe except for propaganda.

                      Russia has had more means of destruction for a long time, but there are no means of detection and target designation, and we saw how it all worked on Snake Island.
                      Our means of destruction can reach any object on the territory of Ukraine, but our means of detection are not able to detect them with MLRS, Tochka-U, Neptunes and Harpoons, otherwise they would be destroyed when advanced to their positions either by Caliber or VKS.

                        Reminds me of an old Jewish joke. Russian language lesson in a Jewish school. The teacher is children, if you do not know how to write statosrat, or sratostat, write dirigopol. ------ Thus, if the grapes could not be eaten, then it is not yet ripe. Very ancient. The fox saw that a ram was grazing at the top of the hill and he had big mudya, said I’ll tear off and eat. She climbed up the mountain. The ram saw her, and when she approached, he hit her with his horns. She rolled down the mountain. I lay down, caught my breath and said they didn’t come off, and it’s not necessary, I didn’t really want to. Read this, how a blacksmith made a zilch from a large piece of metal.

                        what It's sad, of course. But in this case, why are they? Or will the descendants of the proto-ukrovs pull the island where they want? On this island, any position is like a flea on a bald head.

                    AND? Well, harpoons, so what? Put harpoons in an open field and wait for them to be demolished. So it is there. In order to put something serious there, many people need to have it in the complex, air defense aviation and space, and much more. Otherwise, at least every day the positions will be demolished

                    But if the Ukrainians gain a foothold there, Sevastopol will already be in the affected area with the same harpoons.
                    Yeah, there the distance from Odessa, that from this island to Sevastopol is almost the same about 300 km.

                    In general, the value of this island for the military can only be its proximity to Romania (NATO), to control the airspace.
                    But this island is extremely difficult to supply and protect.
                    So the value is not great, and if they still transfer the S-500 to the Crimea, then nothing at all.

                  Serpentine is a strategic place. An unsinkable aircraft carrier. Allows you to control the entire northwestern direction of the Black Sea. It was an awl in the underbelly of NATO. Leaving the island is not a mistake. This is a betrayal. We will not see Odessa. Ships and aircraft of the Black Sea Fleet will not be able to work there. I’m sure the Armed Forces of Ukraine will immediately take it. And there will be anti-ship missiles and air defense of the NATO type. There are no words.

                  We heard your political cry. Now the military factor. The coastline in the Odessa region is covered by the air defense of NATO countries in terms of detecting our assets. UAVs and US reconnaissance aircraft hang in the Black Sea, they not only detect our ships, but also provide real-time target designation, including on Snake Island, already to their means in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Russian Armed Forces do not have such means, it does not control the coast of Ukraine in the Odessa region in real time, and even more so there is no target designation ... There are means for destruction, but there is no target designation for them ... and will not be ... In such conditions, keep Serpentine is impossible! Moreover, the ships do not have long-range air defense systems ... And there is nothing at all to detect low-flying targets in the "advanced army" !!! Who changed to what is not a question. There is nothing to hold the snake with, there is no possibility in the conditions of the intervention of pi_ndos and their intelligence equipment ...

The General Staff of the Armed Forces and all the generals are engaged only in strategic weapons, well, operational-tactical, they do not stoop to conventional combat operations. That's why everywhere everything is through ... back ... And in the LDNR for 8 years, and in Syria, and in a special operation ...

                        It has probably been a month since Russia's military experts say that Russia is now in the current conditions need the State Defense Committee as a permanent advisory body that prepared the decisions of the President of the Russian Federation as the head commander in the region:
                        - military construction,
                        - implementation of the most important decisions on the security of the Russian Federation on strategic issues of defense policy.
                        And that he would solve all issues in the country, as under Stalin during the Second World War.

                        For example.
                        On June 30, 1941, in the USSR, by the decree of Comrade Stalin, an all-seeing body was formed in wartime - the USSR State Defense Committee, headed by I.V. Stalin. For the duration of the war, this body became the country's highest state authority, concentrating all power in its hands.

                        Under Yeltsin, from 1996 to 1998 in Russia, by decree of Mr. Yeltsin, the Defense Council headed by B. N. Yeltsin was created and worked.
                        Defense Council - it was an advisory body that was empowered to develop for the President, issues related to military construction, as well as carry out the implementation of the most important decisions of the Russian Security Council on strategic issues of defense policy.

                Something in recent months, our unilateral gestures of goodwill, cause such feelings that you can only speak obscenely. If this island is so unimportant, then why did they ruin so much equipment and people? It is not clear whether the ships that will take grain from Odessa will be inspected. I don’t see any other reason to fight for this island like that, except for controlling Odessa from the sea, preventing the threat of landing and supplying weapons. Grain can also be delivered via other routes ... And are we really pursuing the goals in this war that our president announced. Denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine will be at all? If so, how is this possible without taking control of most of Ukraine? Or do we just trust them? If all the same, we plan to achieve these goals. How to solve them with cash? A protracted war is not beneficial for us, from the point of view of the economy, Russia is many times inferior to the NATO countries ...

                  What control over Odessa? Are you talking about a landing operation? It is practically impossible to carry it out, as a rule, an amphibious operation is an auxiliary one, when the main forces of the defenders are busy repelling attacks from land. By land, they could not even get close to Odessa.
                  And both sides need Snake Island to control the waters of the Black Sea (for us, for air defense, since Moscow is at the bottom and there is no more long-range air defense in the Black Sea Fleet, and Ukraine is for deploying anti-ship missiles). If harpoons appear on the island, then even Sevastopol will be in their zone of destruction.
                  1. Marvelous !!! We agreed to the point that the Ukrainians can beat on the island in order to overtake us from there, and we, with all our Iskanders and Zircons-Calibers, will calmly let them whitewash the hut there and set up a little garden?!
                    If we have deprived ourselves of the opportunity to die on the island, then now let the "overcome invaders" die there ....

To become like grandmothers near the entrance is not the most useful and necessary activity in today's situation.

                          The snake wrote a comment on the island without thinking properly, just emotions. In the light of the supply of new long-range weapons, this is an unpleasant, but still a necessity ... It is sad that there is a lack of forces on our part and a misunderstanding of why no active actions are being taken to strengthen them, at least on the part of volunteers. (active advertising, explanatory work, financial and organizational side of the issue, free military training courses for those who do not have self-confidence or relevant skills, etc.). The active work of our state from this side is not felt.

Well, as for the losses that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will suffer, of course, few people will be worried.

            According to some (Mikhail Onufrienko, for example), Snake Island has no military significance. This is a rock, it is not possible to "dig in" there. Any exhibited Ukrainian equipment will be quickly destroyed by aircraft and ships. However, the "reputational" losses of the Russian Federation and the leadership are very large. IMHO.

          sit on this piece of land, also rocky, under constant fire with everything you can. In principle, it is impossible to shoot down all the shells, especially since 155 caliber shells are not even economically profitable. I don’t understand why they went there at all, they would have launched more Reich soldiers there, but gasped at them. There are missiles that can split this island into several beaches (I don’t mean nuclear weapons)

Russia demanded inspection of ships , Ukraine refused), and the EU unblocks Kaliningrad (allegedly from Monday), then we will be able to see at the beginning of next week how much this is true.

There is no defense against simple projectiles, this is not a missile that can be shot down.

          Do you mean Ukrainian generals? I think that in the near future we will really see an example of actions on their part in such a logic.
          But, apparently, you don’t know, and it will be new for you, but neither Stalin, nor Zhukov, nor Peter the Great ever said anything like that, in any case, there is no such documented fact anywhere. This is a stinking Western-liberal false tale that our liberal "intelligentsia" has been chewing on for a quarter of a century.

          Well, so that it’s not so sweet for you to savor, I hasten to remind you that the Iskander missile system can reach ANY point on the coast from Odessa to Constanta almost from Feodosia. And if it occurs to someone from ukrov to bring equipment and troops to Serpentine, their fate is unenviable. However, in the best traditions of the primordially Western thesis "women are still giving birth" no one will be interested in this, Zelensky has already distributed heroism there posthumously once, and will distribute it again.

          Our island was left as unnecessary. Yes, and it was problematic to sit under fire, shoot down Hurricanes shells is expensive, which is a joy for Ukraine. And let them fly - there is no one to fight back. The island will not even occupy the APU - there is little joy in sitting in a trap. Maybe they’ll put up their pennant by helicopter in order to fix it, so it’s only a disgrace to yourself.

        A retreat with a total advantage is the same maneuver as an offensive. And it should be voiced accordingly. The article should have had a completely different text. What do we care what the U.K.R.s say? We must speak our mind!

          This is impossible without at least partial mobilization.
          Arithmetically it won't add up.
          Russia operates with a very limited peacetime force.
          Which in terms of the Ground Forces and the Marine Corps were already tiny for such a country.
          And our losses, both human and material, are not compensated by anything.
          But in Ukraine, no matter what they say, there are less and less problems with this - wave after wave of mobilization, establishing supplies of everything from the West.

          What other "key" to what Odessa?! Putin made it clear from the very beginning that our plans DO NOT include the occupation of Ukraine. And then the Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially announced that we are NOT GOING TO overthrow the official government in Ukraine. And it was repeatedly repeated that the task of the NWO is to protect Russia, Donbass, as well as the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine. But there is no occupation of Ukraine, and it was not planned initially. The occupation of Serpentine, Gostomel, Chernobyl and other places was the solution of TACTICAL tasks. Which can change as the situation develops, the attitudes of the local population, and the world situation. Distracting maneuvers for example. Or a deliberate occupation of generally unnecessary territories in order to then take a demonstrative step back. There may be many different options. What is happening is not a war in the old classical sense of the word: to occupy the entire territory, and place your flags and your power everywhere. The intentions are completely different. If that's how it's done, then that's how it should be.

                          The ruling class in political science and sociology is a social class that has concentrated under its control the functions of management in various spheres of society and, as a result, receives maximum benefits in the structure of society created by it.

                          In the USSR, the working class was formally the ruling class, wasn't it? The Communist Party was the vanguard of the working class, right?
                          And if so, then .... did ordinary workers (representatives of the ruling class) participate in the management of their state? Did ordinary communist workers participate in the election of members of the Politburo? profile ministers? Directors of factories and factories? Were factories and factories joint-stock enterprises in which the workers of these enterprises were shareholders? I have been consciously observing Soviet life from the very bottom since 1982, I can answer these questions that, no .... ordinary workers did not have such powers! Those. in the USSR, a party-state conglomerate was created that governs the country alone, without the participation of ordinary Soviet citizens, and this is nothing more than state capitalism, in which the role of the owner of capital was played by the party-state apparatus!
                          Even old man Engels warned ....
                          communists, forced to come to power as a result of the helplessness and lethargy of all the other opposition parties, when the material and organizational conditions for the implementation of socialism have not yet matured, will be forced to practically realize not their program and not their own interests, but general revolutionary and petty-bourgeois interests - the interests of a class alien to them, getting off from his own class with phrases, promises and assurances that the interests of the other class are his own.

                          And so and not so. You probably know that in the OEF there are at the same time remnants of previous OEFs and the beginnings of future ones? Therefore, yes, the ruling class was the working class, which then moved in fact to a classless society. But at the same time, remnants in the public consciousness of people and the state apparatus itself did not allow this to be done in full.

          This suggests that the RF Armed Forces have no immediate plans to capture Odessa and the region, and keeping the garrison under constant attacks by MLRS and artillery is really futile.
          Another thing is that for Sumeria, the capture of the island has no prospects other than a propaganda effect - its garrisons will be regularly demolished by air strikes, and they do not have effective air defense systems for the island. So now we will switch places and it is they who will suffer stable losses on Serpentine without the opportunity to gain a foothold.
          The only thing that is a pity is that the ability to carry a radar patrol on the island is being lost, and it is almost impossible to keep ships there due to the threat of coastal anti-ship missiles.

                This is how AWACS sees the sky and the sea hundreds of kilometers around. The data is leaked to the Ukrainian headquarters.
                And NATO fighters could easily strike at the island from the territory of Romania or Ukraine.

          You can’t even stick a regiment there, but what the hell was the fuss about?
          It was not the deliveries of anti-ship missiles and not long-range systems that were to blame for leaving the island, there was no great sense in keeping it and it was not worth it to climb there.

            The point was the need to place on-duty radar stations there for radar control of the airspace over the water area and the western part of the Odessa region. Before, radar control was carried out by the cruiser "Moskva" (it had no other target), then they decided to deploy a radar station on Zmein (at least you can’t sink it, and it’s possible to deploy air defense systems for cover. But apart from missiles and MLRS, artillery shells also flew ... and anti-ship missiles they have the ability to aim at a radiation source (radar) in a passive mode ... Therefore, they removed the garrison from the island - for the sake of one radar control, it is irrational to bear such losses.

Until you detect, while you shoot back and until your shells fly to her for the same 40 seconds. As a result, you will shoot back at the place where she has been gone for 3-5 minutes. Apparently, they are caught in return by those who are too lazy to quickly change their position, or towed howitzers that are folded for a long time.

Where the resistance is strong, go around and exhaust, and where it is weak, press there. If long-range guns from the mainland reach the island, what's the point of keeping people there, since there is nothing to cover.

          And Sladkov recently wrote about this. It is even scary to imagine the humanism of our leadership in the event of a military clash with an enemy who has all the complexes of a modern army. We will be humanitarian to Vladivostok. Again, as separate consolidated battalion groups, separate planes are fighting in the Chechen. Some separate ships without the cover of heterogeneous forces. As I understand it, the concept of KUG has already been forgotten by commanders? They are not even able to implement the cover of the platforms. We are engaged in responding to enemy strikes. As I understand it, at one time they planned to carry out a landing on the coast with some landing ships? No cover? How is it in Berdyansk?

            So the Black Sea Fleet has no forces at the KUG. The entire real strength of the fleet is three FR pr. 11356 and 6 submarines pr. 636.3.
            And that's it. TFR pr.1135 and 1135M were outdated back in the days of the USSR. MRK and RKA, due to their lack of air defense, themselves need cover. Patrolmen ... there are no censorship words here.
            The only strength of the fleet is aviation. But admirals traditionally do not like it and do not know how to use it. Although the Black Sea Fleet even has a pair of Ka-31s.

          I don’t know much about Wagner, but I think how all private traders (I know successful in terms of production) hire the best and most experienced.
          Do not breed corruption, nepotism, nepotism.
          They don’t steal from public procurement and tenders because you can’t steal from yourself.
          This is only the positive side.

          Would they have helicopters, attack aircraft and experienced pilots?
          I don’t think that they would have been driven to slaughter under air defense.

            You were told, "everything was fine with us, on Zmeiny" and the fact that they left him was a "gesture of good will." What is not clear, then? Vaughn, and Strelkov-Girkin says that in the event of a rollback to the borders, they will also announce that we have defeated everyone and this is just a "gesture of goodwill", well, in order to avoid unnecessary casualties and destruction, and what is most interesting, the majority is happy to eat it up and in all the media they will begin to extol the philanthropy and military genius of certain individuals ...

              Strelkov is a private person and has the right to "say" anything. But he, on the territory of the former united Ukraine, with all due respect to him, was the last time he was? .. About 8 years ago? ..

              We considered the option of a landing operation in the direction of Odessa, the capture of Zmenin was NECESSARY.

              They changed priorities and operational plans, "postponing" the deadlines and changing the methods of blocking the Odessa coast for ANY access to it by the NATO public and the timing of mastering Odessa itself, what should the Russian contingent do on the Serpentine contingent? .. For now, "work as a target"? ..

                  Yes, so that the enemy could not use this "clearing" to accommodate the potential of (any) opposition to the planned landing operation. This time. The answer is from "general", so to speak, considerations ...

                  Secondly ... I, like you, do not have even the MINIMUM-sufficient information at the time the leadership was considering the possibility and expediency of conducting a landing operation ... For this, a CONCRETE answer to the question "why"? .. I can not give. As well as I will not begin to enter into "general" discussions on this subject. Namely, - because of the ABSENCE of me and ALL participants in this thread of the VO forum, the MINIMUM-necessary for the productive maintenance of such information. It would be a simple "shaking" of the air ...

                    there can be only one specific answer - Schaub Bulo. There are no more reasons and never have been. but the Ukrainians were caught on this bare hook, specifically, how many senseless losses, both people and equipment, and no one needed the island, and now it is not needed

            If there is military expediency, then the island will be destroyed in the same way as the American base in Ochakovo and American instructors at the Yavorsky training ground. Why is the island better? There is so much talk about him that it is already disgusting to listen to this nonsense. It has no military significance. Only economic. But that's later...

      In short, a classic situation - it never happened, and now it has begun again! That's right, they drowned Moscow, then a tugboat, how many boys were killed, and the result is a gesture of goodwill! So, damn it, we’ll get to the new Khasavyurt! Disgrace!
      PS The government draw conclusions, because this pandemic leaked the entire Crimean consensus in society, are you following the same path again? Again, the party of vkhozhdentsy and agreers took the upper hand in the undercover Kremlin fuss? Your division, how can you repeat the mistakes of Peter III (then they gave away Berlin to Friedrich der Grosse, for which the blood of Russian soldiers was paid) and the same here!

          The president should have a better team so as not to come up with such miserable formulations as a "goodwill gesture"!

          PS There is no need to keep people for fools, so people's trust is collapsing! Russian peasant is ready to shed blood knowing that it is not in vain! And when they wiped their feet with such a wording about the dead and missing, I personally have many questions for the president’s entourage! And I'm sure it's not just me!
