Russian Warships withdraw from Ukrainian Sea

Russian Warships withdraw from Ukrainian Sea 

 In an operational update on Monday (6/6/2022), the Navy said that in an effort to regain control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea, Russia had deployed coastal missile systems in the Crimea and Kherson regions.
It said the threat of a missile strike from the sea remained.
"Since the beginning of the invasion, enemy ships and submarines have launched more than 300 cruise missiles on Ukrainian territory," the Navy said.
"Currently, the intensity of attacks with Caliber cruise missiles has decreased, while the enemy is starting to hit ground targets with anti-ship missiles."

"Perhaps, this shows that Russia has used a large number of modern missile weapons and is forced to use outdated missile types," he added.
The Navy said about 30 Russian ships and submarines were continuing the blockade of civilian shipping.
"Currently, there are up to 12 large landing craft in the Black Sea, but more than a third of them are under repair," the Navy said.
The Navy says Russia has adopted Kyiv's tactics and is trying to regain control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea through coastal missile systems and air-based cruise missiles.
The statement added that there is still a risk of landing Russian tactical forces and sabotage and reconnaissance groups on the Odesa coast, especially in the favorable weather conditions of summer.

Here are the latest headlines from Russia's war in Ukraine, quoted from CNN:
Russia has placed 61 more US officials and top defense and media executives on its "stop list", which barred them from entering the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Monday.
The list includes the heads of leading defense companies, media platforms, rating agencies and aircraft and shipbuilding companies, as well as US State Department officials.

The ministry said the sanctions were in response to growing US sanctions against Russian political and public figures, as well as representatives of domestic businesses.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said there may be more than 2,500 detainees from the Azovstal steel mill in Mariupol now being held in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine.
Zelensky said Russia's plans regarding the treatment of these detainees were constantly changing.
As heavy fighting rages on in the eastern city, local military official Oleksandr Striuk, says there are enough Ukrainian troops and means to retake the city.
There are fierce battles and street fights.
Striuk said the city was being "flattened" by Russian troops.

Ukraine's Defense Ministry said Russian forces launched missile and air strikes against targets across Ukraine.
A Defense Ministry spokesman said Russia was conducting intense fire and strike operations along the lines of combat confrontation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
The European Union's foreign policy chief condemned a Russian missile attack on Ukraine's grain terminal over the weekend in the southern port city of Mykolaiv.
Josep Borrell said the attack went against a recent promise by Russian President Vladimir Putin to offer safe passage through the Black Sea from Ukrainian ports for merchant shipments.
