Russia Saves Its Submarines

Fearing a Ukrainian attack, the Russian Black sea fleet withdrew its submarines from annexed Sevastopol to the Krasnodar region

According to the UK Department of defence, Russia has almost certainly withdrawn its KILO-class submarines from the Ukrainian Sevastopol, which was annexed by the Russians in 2014. Now Russian submarines are located in Novorossiysk, Krasnodar region, Russia. 

"This is highly likely due to the recent change in the local security threat level in the face of increased Ukrainian long-range strike capability. In the last 2 months, the fleet headquarters and its main naval aviation airfield have been attacked," Ministry of defence of the UK.

One of the probable reasons for the annexation of Crimea was Putin's opinion that the Russian fleet would be safe in the Ukrainian Black sea area. Now the situation has changed dramatically, and nothing Russian in Ukrainian Crimea and the Black sea is no longer safe.

Glory to Ukraine!
