'Couldn't stand the heat! Putin reeling as troops forced to ABANDON Snake Island


Ukraine said Russian troops had withdrawn from the strategic outpost in the Black Sea, with Moscow confirming the move.

Ukraine’s ministry of defence tweeted: “Operational Command South confirms, the Russian occupiers have left the Snake Island.

“They couldn’t stand the weather – the ground was burning under their feet, the sea was boiling, the air was too hot.

“P.S. russian warships go f*** yourselves!”

Andriy Yermak, head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s office, added: “KABOOM! No Russian troops on the Snake Island anymore. Our Armed Forces did a great job.”

Russia’s defence ministry said the move was a “goodwill gesture” and insisted the troops had fulfilled the tasks assigned to them.

It added that the move showed Moscow was not blocking UN efforts to organise a humanitarian corridor to export agricultural products out of Ukraine.

Snake Island, which Russia occupied on the first day of its invasion, achieved fame when Ukrainian border guards stationed there rejected a Russian warship’s demand for their surrender.

Ukraine’s Southern Military Command wrote on Facebook that following a successful operation involving missile and artillery units, Russian forces had evacuated from Snake Island in two boats.
