Defence Intelligence: The invaders are preparing for the defense of Crimea, building defensive lines in the Dzhankoy district


They also build defensive lines on the left bank of the Dnieper.


The Russian occupiers still needed to organize an evacuation from the northern part of the temporarily occupied Crimea. However, they are actively building up defenses, both on the left bank of the Dnieper and in the Dzhankoy region. This testifies to the preparations for the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Andriy Chernyak, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, shared this information in a commentary with Ukrinform. He said: “We see that they are actively preparing for defense. They are creating a defensive zone both on the left bank of the Dnieper in the Kherson region and on the administrative border with Crimea, in the north of the peninsula. In particular, they are building two positional areas in the northern part of the Dzhankoy district For them this is very important because, as a result of the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian forces, the north of Crimea will be the zone of destruction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”

Chernyak also touched upon the flight of collaborators from the territory of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. According to the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate, the traitors are trying to leave not for Crimea, but for the Russian Federation.

“Even they understand that one way or another, Crimea will be lost for Russia and will return to Ukraine,” Chernyak stressed.

As for military equipment and the Black Sea Fleet on the temporarily occupied peninsula, they are under the constant cover of air defense systems. Russians hope in this way to protect themselves from “smoking in prohibited places.”
