"The day before, one of the four Ka-52 helicopters that flew to Zmiiny in the evening was damaged and fell into the sea between Zmiiny Island and the Odesa gas condensate field. The Rashists tried to organize a search and rescue operation. But the helicopter requested landing on board "Moscow", - the message reads.
It is noted that in an attempt to reduce the intensity of missile and artillery fire of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Zmiiny Island, the Russians attacked the Black Sea coast in the south of Odesa twice at night with Su-35 fighters. Enemy aircraft fired three Kh-31D missiles. Losses and destruction were not recorded.
It will be recalled that as a result of a successful operation by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russians hastily evacuated the remnants of the garrison from Zmiiny Island with two speedboats and left it.
