UK intelligence: Russia's amphibious threat to Odesa largely neutralized

    WORLD  16 August 2022 - 11:33

    The Russian Black Sea Fleet's currently limited effectiveness undermines Russia's overall invasion strategy, in part because the amphibious threat to Odesa has now been largely neutralized.

    According to Ukrinform, the UK Ministry of Defense said this in its latest intelligence update published on Twitter.

    "The Black Sea Fleet continues to use long-range cruise missiles to support ground offensives but is currently struggling to exercise effective sea control. It has lost its flagship, MOSKVA; a significant portion of its naval aviation combat jets; & control of Snake Island," the ministry said.

    It added that the fleet's currently limited effectiveness undermines Russia's overall invasion strategy, in part because the amphibious threat to Odesa has now been largely neutralized.

    "This means Ukraine can divert resources to press Russian ground forces elsewhere," the statement said.
