Russia Preparing for Defensive Operations in Crimea
The russian invaders created defensive grouping on the temporarily occupied Crimean peninsula and preparing for defensive actions. This was said by Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, on the air of the telethon "Yedyni novyny".
The representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine noted that Ukraine's military intelligence constantly monitors everything related to the activities of the grouping of the russian troops in temporarily occupied Crimea.
"The infrastructure on the peninsula is in constant combat readiness. A powerful ground and air force component are located in Crimea, for example, this is about 90 combat aircrafts and about 60 combat helicopters. A defence grouping was created on the peninsula, which is equipping fortifications and defence lines. They are really preparing for defensive actions on the territory of the peninsula," Vadym Skibitskyi said.
Commenting on the construction of trenches by the occupiers on the Crimean beaches, the representative of Ukraine's military intelligence noted, "they chose the most dangerous areas, where a naval amphibious operation could take place, and now they are preparing defensive lines."
