UKRAINE REGAINS CONTROL OF ITS BOYCO TOWERS IN THE BLACK SEA
Defence Intelligence of Ukraine has said that Ukraine has regained control of gas and oil drilling platforms near occupied Crimea, known as the Boyko Towers.
In particular, the Petro Hodovalets and the Ukraine drilling platforms, as well as the Tavryda and the Syvash jack-up drilling rigs [self-elevating drilling units – ed.] were returned to Ukrainian control.
Russia occupied the Boyko Towers in 2015, and it has been using them for military
purposes since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, specifically as helicopter landing sites and for the deployment of radar equipment.
During the operation, special forces personnel managed to capture valuable trophies: a stockpile of helicopter munitions such as unguided aerial missiles, as well as the Neva radar system, which can track the movement of ships in the Black Sea.
