Russian forces on Snake Island (located 35 km east of the Danube Gate in the Black Sea and occupied by the Russians at the beginning of the conflict) fled in RAPTOR patrol boats and retreated. The last Ukrainian bombings of the night destroyed existing anti-aircraft systems (TOR and PANTSIR), which could be considered an action against A2 / AD (the Russian “bubble” contained only anti-aircraft aircraft, due to the lack of Coast Guard batteries). After several months of war for control of the island, the Ukrainians seem to have won, thanks to NATO support at the ISR level, the supply of fully grounded and anti-Harpoon anti-ship missiles and several tube howitzers and rocket launchers: HIMARS, CEASAR, M-777, etc. This was a victory for NATO, which saw the threat posed to the strategic Roman port of Constanta, and a setback for the Russians, who had firmly missed the opportunity to block that sea and / or land in Bezarabia. Release the peacekeepers stationed in Moscow Transnistria. At this point, the Ukrainians need to see if they can activate the “counter-bubble” by deploying anti-aircraft systems and coastal defense batteries on the island. Snake Island Story is destined to build a school for the Indo-Pacific Theater, where the implementation of A2 / AD bubbles characterizes Chinese strategy in this area.
