Budanov emphasized the need to keep pressure on Russia, particularly in Crimea, by attacking from the air, using naval strike drones, and conducting covert special operations.

The aim of such missions, Budanov added, is to disrupt Russian military logistics on the peninsula.

“Our units repeatedly entered Crimea [in 2023],” he said, before promising to continue audacious commando raids on the occupied peninsula.

Throughout the war, Ukraine has conducted several operations in Crimea, with many successful strikes, including on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet and the Kerch Bridge that connects the peninsula to mainland Russia.
