Zelenskyy Sets Objectives for Ukrainian Defenders in Eastern Black Sea

Written by Edda Bevilacqua

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Ukrainian defenders must deprive Russian occupiers of the ability to operate in the Eastern Black Sea. He said, “Russian warships no longer have a safe place in the western part of the Black Sea and near our Crimea, but they must lose the opportunity to operate in the eastern part of the Black Sea as well.”

In November 2023, Zelenskyy stated that Russia was gradually losing control over the Black Sea and was retreating to eastern waters. Ukrainian forces destroyed ships belonging to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. It also destroyed the Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol. Zelenskyy noted that the Security Service of Ukraine’s Sea Baby surface drones were used for the attack.
