how the balance of power in the Black Sea has changed

The presence of Harpoon anti-ship missiles in the Armed Forces of Ukraine prevents the operations of the Russian army to land troops on the Black Sea coast.

Military expert Dmitry Snegirev, on the air of the telethon, assessed the balance of forces of the warring parties in the Black Sea after the provision of Harpoon anti-ship missiles to Ukraine. In his opinion, the presence of these systems significantly strengthened the position of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and made it impossible for the enemy to carry out landing operations on the Black Sea coast. About it informs agency UNIAN.

“As for the situation at sea, it has undergone significant changes at the time Ukraine received Harpoon anti-ship missiles with a range of up to 120 km,” Snegirev said.

In addition, the expert noted that after statements Putin to strike at decision-making centers (CPR), the Russians can step up missile terror by continuing to shell Ukrainian cities. However, with the availability of HIMARS systems with a range of up to 80 km, APUs can adequately respond.

“After Ukraine receives the HIMARS MLRS with a range of up to 80 km, we can talk about the so-called “rocket spear” tactics. That is, we can respond to each rocket attack on the territory of Ukraine with similar actions,” Snegirev explained.

According to him, the Ukrainian military will independently choose the targets that need to be chosen for the attack. Moreover, representatives of the US Embassy in Ukraine stated that the choice of targets for strikes with long-range MLRS HIMARS is the prerogative of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
