The coastal city of Sevastopol in the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula has been the target of several attacks in recent days. Dozens of soldiers and officers are said to have been killed last Friday.
The operation, dubbed “Cancer Trap,” may have only been possible through cooperation with Russian soldiers. This is what Ukrainian resistance fighters said in an interview with the Kyiv Post newspaper. Frustrated Russian soldiers are said to have revealed the whereabouts of several senior officers.
Resistors cite personal reasons. As Insider wrote, the soldiers have not been paid for a long time. On the other hand, Ukraine pays for information about the whereabouts of important military personnel. It is not known how high this compensation is.
A spokesman for the Ukrainian resistance movement in Crimea says: “Non-payment alone does not force the Russian Armed Forces to stand up to the authorities – but the financial reward awaiting them on the Ukrainian side is an additional incentive.”
Reverse “20 minutes” Marcus Cope calls the Ukrainian attacks on Crimea a “total disaster for Russia.” The Swiss military economist points out that Russia is barely able to confront the attacks. Moreover: “Through such attacks, Ukraine can make clear to Russia that its military position on the peninsula cannot be maintained.”
