The Kremlin and Russian forces are in serious trouble as Ukraine are breaching “Russian defences” which is supposed to be Vladimir Putin’s “super protected” Crimea.
Putin had built the Crimean peninsula into one giant, “super protected military base, like an aircraft carrier that cannot be sunk,” but now Ukraine are “striking at the very heart” of Crimea.
Ukrainian reporter Ilia Ponomarenko, believes that Zelensky’s men are behind the Saki attack, argued the strike was a “devastating” blow to Putin as it has now showed the world of the weaknesses of Russian defences.

Speaking to Times Radio, Ponomarenko said, “It’s a very serious success, especially fine the fact that over the last few years Russia has been turning the Crimean peninsula in one giant, super protected military base, like an aircraft carrier that cannot be sunk.
“So Russia bolstered its protection that stretches from an underwater area to open space.
“So it is a very big question and information that Ukraine managed to penetrate its air defences, its ground defences and inflict such a devastating attack.
“It’s a devastating effect in terms of the material losses, of human losses, to the Russian military.”
He added, “But also it’s a huge blow to morale and the question behind the competence of the Russian defence.
“It’s striking the very heart of the most sensitive place of Russian defences.”
