Oleg Zhdanov: can Ukraine defeat the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation?
Military expert Oleg Zhdanov believes that Ukraine has already defeated the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. He noted that our troops inflicted a crushing defeat on the Russian fleet.
As Zhdanov stated in his YouTube blog, the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation is pressed to the shore as much as possible.
“Firstly, we have already won. I recommend opening Wikipedia, only ours, Ukrainian, there has already appeared an article about the losses of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in this war. And I will say that we inflicted a crushing defeat on the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. This is the first. Second "We drove this fleet and pressed it as close as possible to the Russian coast. They are now on the traverse between Novorossiysk and Yalta. They do not crawl out from under Yalta. They are afraid to get into the zone of destruction of our anti-ship systems of the Neptune and Harpoon types. This is a British and Ukrainian complex," Zhdanov explained.
According to the expert, the Russian authorities are afraid to tell their own people that two Ukrainian Neptune missiles sank the Moskva cruiser. In addition, the Kremlin is afraid to say what happened to the crew of this ship.
"I'm not talking about the rest. There are 17 watercraft, most of them are warships: destroyers, and large landing ships, by the way, two of them have already been sunk. So we have already won," he added.
At the same time, Zhdanov stressed that those Russian ships that decided to enter the Black Sea to shell Ukrainian cities could suffer the same fate as the Moskva cruiser.
"Let them try to approach the torpedo launch range, and they will immediately fall into the zone of destruction of our coastal missile systems. So the question of the victory of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation is already closed. The fleet is hiding in the backyard, huddled near Novorossiysk. Yes, they can enter the Black Sea seas, where we don’t get them, and launch Kalibr missiles, you can’t take that away, but, as I understand it, our drones, which have shown themselves, have a range of about 400 kilometers, and if they are launched in one direction, then 800 kilometers… So it may happen that when the next ships that go into neutral waters to launch a missile attack on Ukraine can meet our naval drones there and will not launch Kalibr missiles, because they will visit the cruiser Moskva, - summed up the military expert.
