“russians leave Snake Island unable to withstand Ukrainian Armed Forces’ onslaught” – stated Brigadier General Oleksiy Hromov, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during his briefing in Media Center Ukraine on June 30, 2022.
The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed the information that the Russian occupiers had left the Snake Island. The General Staff is sure that the enemy could not withstand the attacks from the defenders of Ukraine.
Unable to withstand the fire of our artillery, the strikes of missile forces and aviation, the Russian invaders left the Snake Island. However, the occupier continues efforts to seize the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, efforts to hold captured areas of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, and efforts to create conditions for an offensive in Kharkiv and Mykolaiv regionsOleksii Hromov
Currently, the situation along Volyn, Zhytomyr, and Kyiv axes remain under control, and no signs of an enemy advance have been detected. The enemy’s activities are focused on reconnaissance and demonstrative actions.
Along Chernihiv, Konotop, and Sumy axes, the enemy’s activity focused on airstrikes, mortar attacks, and aerial reconnaissance with a violation of our country’s airspace.

Our soldiers are firmly holding the defense, but the enemy, despite heavy losses in personnel and equipment, is trying to take control of this areaOleksii Hromov
Along the Bakhmut axis, the Russians had an advantage in artillery, so they managed to push back the Ukrainian Armed Forces and establish control over Komyshuvakha, Hirske, and Zolote. Fierce fighting continues in this direction as well.
