Quote: “The command of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation does not abide by even its own declarations of ‘good will’. Around 18:00 today [on 1 July 2022 – ed.], two Su-30 planes of the Aerospace Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation conducted two airstrikes using phosphorous bombs on Zmiinyi (Snake) Island from the Bilbek airfield, having previously claimed that they have ‘completed’ their mission there.
Everyone who is talking about making any kind of agreements with Russia should be aware of these facts.
The only thing that the enemy is actually consistent in is the ‘accuracy’ of their attacks.”
On Thursday, 30 June Russian occupying forces fled Zmiinyi (Snake) Island after Ukrainian forces launched multiple attacks on it, some of them with Ukrainian Bohdana howitzers.
Russian authorities have claimed that Russian military forces had allegedly “completed their mission on Zmiinyi (Snake) Island” and have withdrawn the garrison stationed there “as a gesture of good will.”
