Why Ukraine Decided to Attack a Crimean Gas Production Platform

NEW – June 20, 2022

The situation in the Odessa direction and in the area of Snake Island as of 22.00 on June 20, 2022

After systematic preparation, today at 4 o’clock in the morning, the UAF began to open fire at Snake Island.

At the first stage, an attempt was made to destroy Russian facilities at the island with massive strikes. However, the timely measures taken by the Russian command did not allow the Ukrainian forces to achieve their original goal.

Because of this failure, the UAF decided to attack the Chernomorneftegaz gas production platform. The strikes were carried out on drilling rigs and block conductors at the Odessa field 40 km east of the Island. As a result, there was a fire. The evacuation of the injured company personnel begun.

In response, units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation struck with precision weapons the Shkolny and Artsiz airfields, as well as, according to local residents, the UAF facilities in Belgorod-Dniester and the environs of Ovidiopol.

What does this step made by the UAF mean?

Once again, the Ukrainian authorities, under pressure from Western curators, tried to deblock the ports. However, despite the weapons supplied by Western countries, the attempt failed.

This was the reason for the transition to the tactics of maximum terror against civilian objects, which is a favourite in the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

However, now, in addition to a deliberate strike on civilians on the platform, it is also a threat of huge damage to the ecosystem of the Black Sea, actually directed not only against Russia, but also the countries of the Black Sea basin.

Ukrainian policy is now based on an irrepressible desire to please suppliers of weapons and military equipment. Desperate and even insane decisions will be made to achieve this goal.

No matter how many losses Ukraine will suffer and how many civilians will suffer, the goal of the current Ukrainian authorities is the same: to damage Russia by any methods and means. This is what should be taken into account when planning attacks on UAF facilities.
