Russia claims killing Ukrainian troops on Snake Island

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Thursday that it launched a missile strike that killed “several Ukrainian” soldiers who raised the country’s flag on Snake Island.

After Russian forces abandoned Snake Island, 140 kilometers south of the Ukrainian port of Odessa, the Ukrainians put up the Ukrainian flag on the small island.

The Russian ministry said the strikes were launched shortly after the flag was raised and added that a “part of the Ukrainian military personnel was destroyed” and the “survivors fled in the direction of the village of Primorskoye, Odessa region.” Meanwhile, Odessa regional administration spokesman Serhiy Bratchuk noted that 35 tons of grain were also destroyed in the attack.
