Yusov: Soldiers of the Defence Intelligence landed in Crimea
In the course of a special operation, a subversive group of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine landed on the Crimean coast.
Andriy Yusov, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, reported this in a commentary to Hromadske.
On August 24, at about 5 a.m., explosions were heard near the village of Maiak on Cape Tarkhankut, as reported by the local residents.
The Krym. Realiyi project reported, citing its own sources, that a battle involving watercraft and combat aircraft took place in the area.
Russian propaganda media also reported that a group of unidentified persons on rubber boats landed on the Crimean coast in that area, and a battle ensued.
Yusov confirmed the information about the operation and noted that it was conducted in cooperation with the Navy. The set goals were achieved, and there were no casualties among personnel. He also added that the enemy suffered losses in personnel and equipment.
According to the representative of the Defence Intelligence, the special operation is still ongoing, therefore, the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine does not disclose all the details.
Russian media associated with Russian military institutions confirm that there were no losses in the Ukrainian group.
According to Krym. Realiyi, a base of the 3rd Radio Regiment is located near the landing site of the sabotage group, with the Nebo-M radar system and the Kasta-2E2 radar system deployed there.
These facilities specialize in locating air targets and can be used to detect Ukrainian aircraft, drones, and cruise missiles moving from the Black Sea.
Previously, on August 23, the Ukrainian Defence Intelligence destroyed a launcher of the Russian S-400 SAM system near the scene.
A Ukrainian drone that was conducting reconnaissance and adjusting fire captured the moment the Russian SAM was hit.
