Russian ships are afraid to go beyond Cape Tarkhankut.
Ukrainian defense forces have pushed back the front line in the Black Sea to approximately 185 km from the Ukrainian-controlled coast. Now enemy Russian ships actually do not sail in the direction of Ukrainian territorial waters.
They may appear off the Crimean coast, but do not risk going beyond Cape Tarkhankut. Head of the United Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces Natalya Humenyuk spoke about this during the telethon.
“The front line at sea has long been pushed back to at least 100 nautical miles (185 km — edit.) from the Ukrainian-controlled coast. Currently, ships and boats of the Russian Black Sea Fleet actually do not sail in the direction of the territorial sea of Ukraine. From time to time they appear off the coast of the Crimea, but not closer. They don’t dare go beyond Cape Tarkhankut,” Humenyuk noted.
According to her, at the beginning of a full-scale invasion, enemy ships approached the Odesa region within artillery strike distance. However, after the Defense Forces sank the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the cruiser Moskva, they also managed to push the entire Russian fleet away from the controlled coast.
Now the enemy is trying to demonstrate its advantage in the Black Sea with the help of tactical aviation.
In addition, Humenyuk added that during October 3, the Russians attacked the Snake Island twice with guided bombs. Recently, the invaders have been dropping two or three such munitions on the Snake Island every day.
