Russian Defence Ministry

Briefing by Russian Defence Ministry on 30 June

On June 30, as a goodwill gesture, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation finished fulfilling the assigned tasks in Snake Island and withdrew the garrison that had been operating there.

The Russian Federation has demonstrated to the international society the absence of any obstacles for the efforts of UN to establish a humanitarian corridor for transporting agricultural products from Ukraine.

This solution will prevent Kiev from speculating on an impending grocery crisis citing the inability to export grain due to total control of the northwestern part of the Black Sea by Russia. Now it is up to the Ukrainian side that is still not clearing the Black Sea coastline, including the harbour waters.

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation in Ukraine.

The enemy suffers considerable losses.

On June 28, high-precision long-range sea-based weapons destroyed the command post of Khortitsa operational-strategic group near Dnepropetrovsk.

Over the past 24 hours, high-precision attacks launched by Russian Aerospace Forces at the command post of 123rd Territorial Defence Brigade, the location of foreign mercenaries in Nikolayev, as well as the munitions depot of 79th Air Assault Brigade in Shevchenko (Nikolayev region) have resulted in the elimination of over 20 Ukrainian servicemen and over 80 foreign militants, 6 armoured and motor vehicles, over 1,000 artillery projectiles, 300 mortar projectiles and 100 MANPAD rounds.
