After more than four months of the Ukrainians, the Russian forces abandoned Zmiinyi, as it is called in the Greeks.
Russia claims that it withdrew in a sign of good will to prove that it did not interfere with the export of meat, but Ukraine rejected that claim, as Moscow continues to expand its meat stocks.

The island is exposed to attacks from all directions, from air and sea.
Καταλήφθηκε από τους Ρώσους στις 24 Februarylocated just 35 kilometers (22 mi) from the coast of Ukraine – completely exposed to missile, artillery and drone attacks from the coast.
Something that turned out to be the case lately as the Ukrainian forces did not stop.
Last April, Russia’s anti-aircraft capabilities in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea were significantly weakened by the sinking of the “Moskva”, the flagship of the Mediterranean Sea fleet.
This explains why Κρεμλίνο was so apελπισμένο να φέρεια anti-aircraft systems and radio-electronic warfare equipment στο Φιδονήσι.
But as it was far away from its naval bases in the Mediterranean Sea, Russia’s defense efforts in the region developed into a very ineffective mechanism.
Despite its attacks, Ukraine has a very limited naval capacity, so it has not been able to destroy its own power on the island.
Oleh Zhdanov claims to the BBC that the deployment of troops on the island does not make sense for either side, as it would Easy target.
On the contrary, ο κ. Zhdanov advocates the creation of «ελέγχου πυρών» – the preservation of the ability to hit any target πλησιάζει το ισλίνη.
This will also provide greater security in the largest port of Ukraine in the Mediterranean Sea, and in the entire western sector of the Mediterranean Sea.
A significant rock
Russia already controls a large part of the coast of Ukraine, as well as the entire coast of Crimea.

A look at the map also shows that Russian control of the island is a threat Romaniaμέλος του ΝΑΤΟ – both for the main port of Κωνστάντζα and for traffic at the mouth of the river Δούναβη.
It is not only strategically important – this area is also rich Oil reserves and of natural gas.
A potential game changer
Η απόσυρση των русский дынамеωн is not just a symbolic victory for Ukraine, it’s a strategic success while for Russia it’s a setback.
But it will not change the course of the war. Russia’s goal is to conquer the entire east Ντονμπας And to maintain other areas of the city that were captured at the beginning of the war.
Το Νησί του Τιδιού may be located in an extremely strategic area of the Mediterranean Sea and in an ideal spot for the installation of sophisticated nuclear systems, but in the end it is still a very small rock.
The main question is whether, by forcing the Greeks to flee, the Ukrainians could consider resuming the export of meat to restart their war-ravaged economy.
Without an effective navy, there is little chance of such a thing, and Russian warships maintain their sovereignty in the Mediterranean Sea.

Η Ukraine rejected the Russian proposals for the escort of νηοπομπών σιτηρών από την Οδησσό, as they would require the removal of ναρκών outside the port.
Turkey is actively involved in trying to negotiate an agreement with both Russia and Ukraine, but the prospect of that happening seems remote at this stage.
The next few weeks are considered decisive for Ukraine’s exports – as the next season begins in July.
