The total extermination of enemy boats with the sabotage and reconnaissance groups on board began.
In the Kherson region, where a constant struggle for control over the islands at the mouth of the Dnipro continues, yesterday it was possible to destroy 10 enemy boats at once.
This was announced by the head of the Joint Coordinating Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces Natalya Humenyuk on the air of the telethon.
“Over the past day, as many as 10 enemy boats have been destroyed. This is an attempt to maneuver between the islands. Again, all of them are actually civilian boats, converted for the needs of sabotage and reconnaissance groups,” Humenyuk said.
The press secretary added that 40 occupiers “followed the course of the Russian warship.” One large-caliber gun and five armored vehicles were also destroyed.
Regarding the boats, Humenyuk specified that the occupiers use these converted civilian boats, in addition to maneuvering the sabotage and reconnaissance groups between the islands, also for attempts to rotate personnel, transport ammunition and reconnaissance of the direction of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.
“During the day they tried several times to carry out such maneuvers. Each time, our work was very accurate,” she said.
At the same time, when asked whether such a number of destroyed boats is a familiar statistic or is it considered a high figure, Humenyuk noted that this is “stubborn persistence” with which the enemy continues to send more and more sabotage and reconnaissance groups instead of those that did not return.
“That is, not believing in our accuracy, they nevertheless became convinced of it. In the end, the result is 10:0 in our favor,” the spokeswoman said.
