Russia has stationed special forces units, military boats, air defense units and rocket artillery systems on Ukraine’s Zmiinyi island in the Black Sea, Chief of Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Department Kirill Budanov said on June 22.

The Russians invaded and started to occupy the Ukrainian island soon after launching its invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.

“The Russians are deploying a special group on Zmiiny Island, which consists of air defense units, as well as units armed with rocket artillery systems,” Budanov said on Ukrainian national television.
