Russia-Ukraine conflict: Russia withdraws from Snake Island, Black Sea outpost
Russia continues to wage war on Ukraine for the fourth month since the invasion in February, creating blockades in the Black Sea to disrupt exports. This week, in a victory for Ukraine, Russian forces withdrew from the outpost of Snake Island in the Black Sea.
Kyiv secured a major victory this week when Russian forces left the Black Sea outpost of Snake Island Thursday. Moscow claimed that the withdrawal was a gesture of goodwill to show that it does not intend to obstruct the attempts of the United Nations to open a humanitarian corridor that would allow Ukrainian grains to be shipped.
Ukraine said it drove Russian forces out after an artillery and missile assault overnight.
“KABOOM! No Russian troops on the Snake Island anymore. Our Armed Forces did a great job,” tweeted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s chief of staff, Andriy Yermak.

Zelenskyy mentioned the progress on Snake Island and the situation in the Donbas region that make up Luhansk and Donetsk and is occupied by pro-Russian separatists in his nightly address.

Zelenskyy said that in the fighting in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, Moscow had brought all of its reserves to attack.
Despite withdrawing from Snake Island, Russian forces bombarded the port city of Odesa Friday. 17 were killed when a rocket hit an apartment building while injuring dozens, according to Ukrainian authorities.
Russia has doubled down on its missile strikes in recent weeks, making use of Soviet-era missiles for more than half of its attacks as the forces on the ground are focused on Donbas in eastern Ukraine.
