Retaliation on our part was the destroyed hangar with Bayraktar drones at the Shkolny airfield near Odessa. And two more platoons of NATO M-777 howitzers on Kubansky Island, and two launchers of the S-300 system in the Ochakovo and Tuzla regions of the Odessa region. This was stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Defense Igor Konashenkov.
By the way, according to Konashenkov, the Chornomorneftegaz platforms were not the targets of the Ukrainian raid. They were struck rather out of desperation: they needed a bright image for a TV show. The main task was the Snake Island, which the Ukrainians lost at the beginning of the special operation and cannot get it back.
This is how it went:
According to the plan of the Ukrainian command, its forces were to first launch massive air strikes and artillery on Snake Island, and then land troops there. Serious forces were launched: 15 attack and reconnaissance drones, the gunner of which was two Bayraktars, the US Air Force Global Hawk RQ-4 strategic reconnaissance aircraft circling nearby, and all this under the cover of the S-300. Attacks on the Serpentine were carried out by Tochka-U ballistic missiles, Uragan multiple launch rocket systems, and M-777 howitzers.
The Russian troops were defended by anti-aircraft complexes “Pantsir” and “Tor”. Everything flying in the direction of Zmeinoye (4 Tochka-U and 21 Hurricane shells) was shot down, as were 13 drones.
When the Ukrainians realized that they had achieved nothing, they abandoned the landing on the island and attacked civilian drilling platforms. 7 of those who were in them are still considered missing.
