In Crimea, the invaders installed anti-tank “dragon’s teeth” on the Kerch Peninsula
This is reported by the correspondent of the publication Crimea. Realities.
“This line of fortifications is located on a narrow isthmus connecting the Kerch Peninsula with the main part of Crimea… It is located in the area between the villages of Batalnoye and Primorskoye,” the report says.
As the newspaper writes, the line of “dragon’s teeth” is quite long and is lost over the horizon, if you look at it from the track “Tavrida”.
In turn, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine informsthat between the settlements of Ishun and Voinka in the Krasnoperekopsky district of the temporarily occupied Crimea, the enemy began the construction of fortifications and trenches.
“The civilian population is forcibly involved in the performance of work on a gratuitous basis,” the report says.
On March 16, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vadim Skibitsky saidthat a group was created in the occupied Crimea to equip fortifications and defense lines. Most of these structures were built in the north of the Crimean peninsula and in the south of the Kherson region on the outskirts of the Crimea.
As the TsZhR reported, in anticipation of a counteroffensive by the Ukrainian army, the invaders literally bite into the occupied land of southern Ukraine all winter: they build trenches, dugouts, and install anti-tank gouges. It turned out that the dugouts in the Zaporizhzhya steppes were being built by Ostarbeiters – laborers from Central Asia, who were brought in by Moscow businessmen on shifts, thrown for money and to the mercy of fate. See the details in the story of correspondent Sergei Starushko: “Who is building defense lines for the Russians in the Zaporozhye region”.
On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct full-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine are rebuffing the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kyiv in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military commits thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity throughout Ukraine.
