The head of the press center of the Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine, Natalia Gumenyuk, said at a briefing that the Ukrainian military had planted the country's flag on the island of the Snake Island.
“The territory has again been returned to the jurisdiction of Ukraine,” Humenyuk believes.
She didn't give any details. Gumenyuk also did not answer the question of whether Ukrainian units are currently on the island or this act was committed by a small group that left Zmeiny after the flag was set.
Recall that earlier the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the withdrawal of Russian troops from islands as a step of goodwill to demonstrate that there are no obstacles to the efforts of the UN to organize the export of Ukrainian grain.
Today, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the liberation of the territory of the DPR.
