The Russian military are preparing to defend Crimea from the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their NATO allies. The recently shared online satellite imagery revealed that Russian forces are actively reinforcing the military positions in the north of the peninsula.
The footage showed the renewal and digging of new trenches near the Isthmus of Perekop which links the peninsula with and the mainland. The firts photo was reportedly taken on November 5 near the town of Armyansk. An excavator is seen digging new trenches in the area. The second photo was reportedly taken on October 10. It shows Russian trenches on the Chongar peninsula located in the north-eastern part of Crimea.
There are two roads leading to Crimea from the mainland. Border posts were established near Armyansk and Chongar after Crimea entered Russia in 2014. In September 2022, after the Kherson region also entered the Russian Federation, the borders between the two Russian regions were eliminated.
Amid the upcoming retreat of the Russian military from the right bank of the Dnieper River in the Kherson region, the threat of further Ukrainian advance is growing. The northern regions in Crimea may be easily shelled by Ukrainian artillery and foreign advance systems as soon as Ukrainian forces approach the Dhieper.
The battle for Crimea is no more a pipe dream of the Kiev regime.
