On June 30, it became known that the Odesa region was liberated from invaders. This meant that the Armed Forces of Ukraine successfully conducted a counter-offensive on Serpent island. However, the Russian Federation claimed that its soldiers had completed all operations on the island, so they left voluntarily. The Russian army blew up the remaining equipment, leaving the island. The dubious "act of goodwill" after the Ukrainian offensive became even more fabulous on July 1. On the evening of 1 July, the Russian Federation flew 2 aircraft. The aircraft attacked the island with phosphorus bombs. The purpose of the shelling of the area where the "completed tasks" are unknown.
"Anyone who talks about agreements with Russia should know these facts. The only thing in which the opponent is consistent is the unchanging "accuracy," said the Ukrainian commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Ukraine, Valerii Zaluzhnyy.
British intelligence also has a version of what's going on in recent days on Serpent island.
"The troops of the Russian Federation were forced to leave the Ukrainian Serpent island because of the constant strikes of the Ukrainian armed forces. This was not a goodwill gesture, as later stated in Russia," written by the UK Ministry of defense on Twitter.
