Marchenko on whether Ukraine can liberate Crimea by military means: “Yes. We will liberate it by military means. No one has rejected this. Crimea is Ukraine, it is our land, and there are our people there who are still forced to sit under occupation. No one gave Russia the right to come, take a piece of land and say that ‘this is mine’.”

Details: He clarified that for the liberation of Crimea, it is necessary to destroy the Crimean Bridge.

Quote from Marchenko: “Yes, this is a necessary measure to deprive them of the opportunity to provide reserves and strengthen their troops from the territory of Russia.”

Details: The Major General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stressed that Ukraine will reclaim Crimea, as well as Kherson, Luhansk and Donetsk.


  • At the end of July, it became known that Major General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Dmytro Marchenko, who until April led the defence of Mykolaiv, had returned to the Mykolaiv area to carry out some operations.
  • On the afternoon of 9 August, explosions rocked the military airbase in Novofedorivka in Russian-occupied Crimea. Local residents posted videos on social media showing at least two fires and commenting that they had heard 7-12 explosions.
  • The Russian Defence Ministry claimed that the fire at the Saky airfield was the result of the detonation of some aircraft ammunition. Later, a source at the Russian Defence Ministry informed TACC that the explosions were caused by a “fire safety violation” at the military airbase near Novofedorivka.
  • The Ministry of Defence of Ukraine has said it was not aware of what caused the explosions at Novofedorivka.
  • The New York Times quoted a “senior Ukrainian military official with knowledge of the situation” who said that Ukrainian forces were behind the blast at the air base.
  • Mykhailo Podoliak, Senior Adviser to Ukrainian President, said that Kyiv was not involved in the explosions at the airfield in Novofedorivka in Russian-occupied Crimea.
  • On the morning of 10 August, the General Staff reported that on 9 August, Russia lost 160 military personnel, nine aircraft and 15 tanks.

Colin: “The Ukrainians needed to take out the bridge from Russia to the Crimea at the beginning of the unprovoked attack by Putin. Anything with a Russian flag floating in the Black Sea also needs to be sunk. The UN should supply the long range missiles to do the job. That is the only way the carnage will stop. Putin won’t use any nukes. The resulting fallout would drift across Russia too.”

Peter: “Ukraine is taking very wise steps to reclaim their country. Cutting off the Russian Bear from the sea will force the Bear to sue for peace since they have no other way to feed and arm their soldiers. Now, Crimea is an isolated bastion of the Bear, but tomorrow an important port for the Ukrainian people!”


  1. “Mykhailo Podoliak, Senior Adviser to Ukrainian President, said that Kyiv was not involved in the explosions at the airfield in Novofedorivka in Russian-occupied Crimea.”

    Now I’m confused…;)

    • They said this yesterday, that they didn’t do it. They also said that they did it with Ukrainian weapons. They also said it was a special ops unit. They also said it was an angry group of babushkas. Who knows anymore? I can’t wait to find out the truth. But, by then, I don’t know to believe it or not.
