A force of the Ukrainian commando landed today (Monday) on the island of snakes in the Black Sea and returned the strategic and symbolic outpost to the control of Kyiv, not four months of Russian occupation.

The force hoisted the Ukrainian flag on the island.

"The military expression in the Black Sea has ended the territory of Snake Island returning to the legal sovereignty of Ukraine," she said.

It is unclear at this stage whether Ukraine will permanently leave forces in the city, where they are exposed to a Russian attack from the sea or from the air.

The Ukrainian side claimed that the Russians withdrew from the island after discovering that it was almost within range of the Ukrainian artillery, after the United States and NATO countries handed over long-range artillery to the Ukrainians, who used it and managed to hit the Russian military air defense systems on the island.

The Russian military has also reportedly destroyed military equipment on the island, including patrol boats and missile systems, before withdrawing its forces.

Of strategic importance in controlling the sea passage to the port of Odessa as well as as an anti-aircraft weapons station.

The Russian military has made great efforts under heavy casualties to place weapons and air defense systems on the island, but this effort has failed.

The island is also of great symbolic importance to the Ukrainians, after a small Ukrainian force stationed on the island at the outbreak of the war sent a response to the Russian Black Sea Fleet's flagship in response to a demand to surrender that became a symbol of Ukrainian resistance to Russian invasion.

The members of the force, numbering 13 fighters, responded to the demand of the destroyer "Moscow", which has since drowned in a Ukrainian attack, to surrender with the words: "Russian warship, go to hell".

The Warriors Something was released in a POW deal later.
