Russian Strike Destroyed Harpoon Anti-Ship Missiles In Ukraine’s Odessa

A Russian missile strike had destroyed a storage warehouse for Harpoon anti-ship missiles in the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on July 17.

“A warehouse for Harpoon anti-ship missiles supplied to Ukraine by NATO countries was destroyed with [Russian] high-precision long-range missiles at an industrial site in Odessa,” the MoD’s spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov said during his daily briefing.

The Harpoon is a sea-skimming anti-ship missile that is equipped a GPS-aided INS [inertial navigation system] and an active radar seeker. When launched from surface, the missile has a range of 124 to 280 kilometers depending on the version. It is armed with a 221 kg penetration high-explosive blast warhead.

The warehouse was reported targeted with Kh-101 stealth cruise missiles, which were launched from Tu-95 strategic bombers.

The Kh-101, which was developed by MKB Raduga, is said to has a maximum range of 4500–5500 kilometers. The missile guided by a GLONASS-aided INS [inertial navigation system]. It is reportedly re-targetable, and can be also equipped with a radar or optical seeker for terminal guidance. It is armed with a 400–450 kg conventional warhead.

In the last few months, Ukraine received Harpoon missiles from several of its Western allies. In late May 2022, Denmark sent Harpoon launchers and missiles to Ukraine, and shortly after, the Netherlands sent additional missiles. Later in mid-June 2022, the US announced that they would supply Ukraine with Harpoon launchers and missiles and the UK Defence Secretary said that they also were looking into supplying Ukraine with the missiles.

This was not the first Russian strike to target Ukraine’s newly-acquired Harpoon missiles. On July 8, a pinpoint missile strike on Odessa oblast wiped out two Harpoon anti-ship missile launchers which were recently supplied by the UK.

The US and its allies claimed that their move to supply Ukraine with Harpoon missiles is meant to “defeat Russia’s naval blockade”. Russia and Ukraine has already reached an agreement to end the blockade. Yet, Harpoons missiles are still apparently being sent to Ukraine. The real purpose of these missiles is to escalate the conflict in Ukraine.

Let it rain, let it rain – Missiles of course on Ukrainian Nazi piss and their equipment. Russia has eyes all over Ukraine and will keep pounding away at NATO imports day and night! Russia needs expand this more and more and bring Kiev into the play in terms of missile sanctions – for every attack by Ukrainian Nazi piss on Civilians in Dombas – Kiev government centres will be hit 5 or 10 times over. Time to discipline the Ukrainian Nazi piss.

Thats not the same as the ukras store their missiles, where they can be hit. Zelinsky is not elected because he is a jew.

Some might have elected him even he is a jew. He is lected because he as professional entertainer has showed hos relations to Ukraine and Russa well.

Just as Trump and makron he was chosen as the third candidatre, because the two others where not able to.

Im sure he is more Ukrainian then You. Its a very good sign You dislike him.

Ukraine has threatened to destroy Crimea and blow up the bridge -Russian MP Mikhail Sheremet- replies -quote – ” the response from Russia will be so harsh the Kiev authorities will never recover from it.Also-it will be followed by a crushing blow to decision making centres in Kiev-miltary infrastructure and arms-supply logistics and if so a decision will be made to take over the WHOLE of Ukraine to stop this threat –just what the pro Russia posters here want !

The problem for Ukraine is they have no escalatory route to victory – even if they could raise 10 million soldiers, Russia would escalate to thwart it. NATO could not escalate even more, as that would bring more of their territory into play in a nuclear way (and no one can touch the nuclear bastions – otherwise its all over for all) – so Bottom line Russia ALWAYS has escalatory dominance in Ukraine – they know it and even Obama’s administration knew it. There simply is no way for Ukraine to win an existential war with Russia – period – the western military planners in terms of NATO have got themselves confused about it and are putting their people in poverty because of it. This will never be confined to a conventional or local conflict during ultimate escalation – because its existential to Russia! All that can happen is to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian, after that just Russians live there! That is the reality!

SM Sparviero

Putin will escalate to Super Sayan III level to crash Vegeta-Zelensky.

jens holm

As long as Russia dont use nukes the Nato anytime can take it all the way to Ural before any mobilisation of that kind is possible.

Its shown well in Ukraine, where we only has donated some first class education and defence systems.

Most likely small airplanes still can go in and land at the red square nand will be welcome.

Can You get us some pommes frites, they will ask. If so You will be Our next President. Thats how the Russian level is.

Muhammad your Prophet

Just like the Putin cockroaches threatened Slovakia if they handed all their MIG 29s to the Ukrainian Air Force? Slovakia just handed all its MIG 29s to Ukraine last week. What the fuck are you going to do about it? NOTHING. That bridge in Crimea will be destroyed and you will do shit about it. Get used to it.

RealityOfWar

Have you not been watching the news – Russia now has a land bridge in what is 22% of liberated territories – size of UK as I understand it! What a gain by Russia when faced with Italian modifications to Ukrainian tanks – one forward gear – six reverse – Ukraine have been using them continually ever since. As for Mig 29s Russia is taken the ones in Ukraine down every day. and just for edification – it’s quite an operation to bring an aircraft operationally into theatre when you can’t fly them in! Most people don’t understand the complex logistics, set up and provisioning of such a complicated piece of equipment. The problem for Ukraine – they are vulnerable on route and a sitting duck in the air!

Muhammad your Prophet

I’ve been watching the news and all I’ve seen is a bunch of Russian terrorist cockroaches bitching about how the Russia sanctions are blocking the transportation of goods and the shitty Russian army can’t consolidate its forces because the Russian conscripts will refuse to go back to the front lines.

RealityOfWar

With Ukraine being ground down, of course Russia will point out the illegal blocking of goods to Kaliningrad in violation of international law – as the EU and Lithuania were trying to do. The EU have now moved to end their criminal behavior and are now allowing goods in (free of sanctions) based on a 3 year average. Of course Russia will complain further to get the EU to fully comply with international law and their treaty obligations. Then in terms of ‘will’ there are a lot of Wills around for Ukraine – will take territory back, will be in NATO….. all wills with no factual backing. Indeed the only will that factually applies to Ukraine at the moment, is a last Will and testament – as Ukraine’s propaganda – meets the reality of war – 22% territory taken in what is just a special military operation using a sixth immediate fixed military capability.

I think EU decided to allow the transportation of goods because the EU would then have to back Lithuania in a war, that which EU does not want to have.

When EU decided to back off because they don’t want to fight a war, Lithuania then realized they would have no help if they continued the illegal stopping of transportation and then allowed it.

jens holm

Not at all. Its about which products are sanctions and which are not.

It has changed frommost things to everything – somethimng like that.

We use Nato for war with Lituania and not EU. EU only has few units for any kind of war becsuse some few countries insist.

We are not Ukrainian propganda. The world has votes about it in United Nations. Here You are united with Assad, Lukashenko, North Korea, Cuba and Eritreat.

China and India as the bigger ones has kept themself neutral.

Lituania by the way has been Nato member for 18 years. So if You even try to touch Litiania, You will meet 26 more of us. We have small amounts of troops there and help up their tiny army as well. By that they also has nave and airplaine precense for deflections.

The Russians were never in Kharkov they were outside the city pinning down and destroying the Uke forces in Kharkov … they just retreated to pull Ukrainian forces away from schools and hosp … er their strongpoints then cut them to pieces with artillery and now they’re back in the same positions they were in before the grand offensive and shell Kharkov at their pleasure again.

So no счастливая еда for the boys in Moscow then … just the smell of their own burnt hair and bacon.

Yes they were in Kharkiv, you fucking idiot. And the reason they’re not anywhere near Kharkiv anymore is because they defeated and humiliated when they tried and failed to capture the city.

No they have not.

Europe with its many small states should never be divided anymore. We support Russians as long as they are in Russia only. They even can be Our friends.

Russians seemes to leave Russia. Your Oligarcs smugle out money and invest here instead of in Russia. They create jobs and we try to tax them as well as it goes.

Thats how Your real world is. We make walls to keep people OUT. None here will ever take Russia or even tryas long as the Russians are there.

If You live shorter and makes less children, You have space for Our many unwanted refugees and emmigrant. A help for them might be some Mosques are like Moskva as Königsberg to Kaliningrad.

RealityOfWar

I must admit I am always baffled by some who can’t see the whole picture of events that play out in war. I mostly blame the western media for putting a headline up, when the detailed content and facts do not support the headline. The Cuba missile crisis can be headlined as – Soviet Union backs down. However, the nukes in Turkey were railed in as part of that deal. Similarly here the grain export problem of Ukraine is linked to the grain export from Russia that is based on an insurance network for the shipping. On top of that there is a narrative to be countered in the world that Russia is causing hunger. Russia is quite rightly playing the detail and the situation. It wants grain exports from Ukraine linked to freedom of grain exports from Russia, it wants the world to see that Russia is aiming for maximum grain supply, and its the west that is stopping that by restricting all grain exports (Russian) – that’s a summary, there is even more to it….. A hammer always sees everything as a nail – and the military propaganda in the west has got everyone seeing Harpoons, HIMARS…. as the answer. I assure you Russia deals with those normal threats of war as they are – just normal events of war. Russia gave up 20 million in the last existential conflict – there is doubtful 20 million left in Ukraine now and stopping that threat is worth another 20 million – Russia is fighting for its very existence!

jens holm

HB_Norica

Ukraine had Harpoons in May … Ukraine cried about the Russian blockade up until yesterday. If Russians were”‘afraid of harpoon missiles” why did it take a 2 month negotiation to get Russia to deblock Odessa. You would think if Russian were afraid of harpoon they would have cleared out as soon as the missile was deployed nes pas?

Turkey did not allow them to enter as is their prerogative under international law. Also they will not allow Russia to exit theirs. Turkey does not want to have their fishing boats bothered or to have the waters of their back garden used to make war in. If boats were still made of wood, they may have been OK about it as they could have collected all of the drift wood to use this winter.

Another terrorist attack in Odessa from the Putin cockroaches. Last night the Putin terrorists launched 23 terrorist strikes on civilian infrastructure in Kharkiv. Vladimir Putin is such a desperate terrorist freak right now he only feels content in murdering as many civilians as he can now that the shitty Russian army is being destroyed at every front. It’s what terrorist cockroaches like him do. Murder as many people as they can before their atrocities finally catch up to them.

Now, let’s all be honest. NATO wants to keep face “we will not start ww3 because the Russians destroyed one of our planes over Greece”, so they had to find a story to cover everything up. And keep face. In fact, the plane was loaded with mines , flying from Greece to Ukraine, a fair and legitimated target, so it has been neutralized. And they have been warned many times by Lavrov – “If you deliver heavy weapons which will be used to kill Russian civilians, this will make you a legitimated target”.

There is something the West does not seem to undertand, Russia is fighting at home. It is an existencial fight, and even so, they are not using all their power in the fight. Most of the people in those areas where the fighting is going on will see Russian “occupation” as something good that could improve their living. There is no way the Russians could lose this fight.

It’s a long way to Odessa now… if they only focused on Kherson->Nikolaev->Transnistria & Odessa instead of Kiev in the first few days/weeks.

HB_Norica

Russia does diplomacy and warfare hand in hand. Russia will achieve the current military objectives then offer negotiations.

In order to have any leverage the Russian have to put something Ukrainian at risk. In order to have credibility Russia has to reach it’s objectives of the current military operation.

It goes something like recognize the DPR / LPR as independent and crimea / Kherson as Russian and NATO fuck off or we take Odessa and turn Kiev into a gravel pit. The west say yea or nay and the fighting stops or continues.
