Snake Island has become a symbol of Ukraine’s resistance movement since Ukrainian troops rejected calls from Russian troops to surrender. “Two Russian patrol ships were destroyed near Snake Island this morning,” the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said in a statement released on social media on Monday.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry has also released a black-and-white video footage. The footage captured from the plane showed a small military ship exploding.

The patrol boats can carry three sailors and 20 passengers. There are some machine songs attached.

Earlier, a Russian ship Moscow sank in the Black Sea in mid-April. Moscow claims the ship exploded. Ukraine claimed that it had launched a missile attack on the ship.
