Ukraine Armed Forces shared footage of the air and missile strikes that drove Russian Forces off of Snake Island, on Thursday June 30.

Ukraine’s Armed Forces have shown what they claim drove Russian forces off of Snake Island, in various clips and images that show the missile and air strikes they carried out.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi stated:

“Unable to withstand the fire of our artillery, missile and air strikes, the invaders left the island”

Taking to their official Twitter account, the Defence of Ukraine posted:

“Three ingredients of the successful operation: skills of the Ukrainian military; modern Ukrainian weapons; equipment from our international partners and the Snake Island is free from occupation.”

“Operational Command South confirms, the Russian occupiers have left the Snake Island.  They couldn’t stand the weather – the ground was burning under their feet, the sea was boiling, the air was too hot.”

“P.S. russian warships go f…ck yourselves!”
