Russia withdraws from Snake Island as goodwill gesture

Russian Ministry of Defence shared on Thursday that it has decided to withdraw its forces from the Snake Island as a "gesture of goodwill" after completing "their assigned tasks."

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov underscored that this is a demonstration "to the world that 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."

Previously, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence noted that Ukraine managing to destroy one of Russia's naval ships, which was on a resupply mission, demonstrated "the difficulty Russia faces when attempting to support their forces occupying Snake Island."
