According to the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the DPR armed forces, in coordination with the Russian Army and the Chechen special forces, have won control of the port of Mariupol in the strategic city along with the Russian military. name in the South Ukraine.
Thus, one of the last and most difficult objectives in Mariupol has been solved by the Russian armed forces.
The other target is the Steel Factory area, which is said to have a solid underground tunnel system tens of kilometers long, which is very convenient for the defenders. Although the task force received orders from the Chechen Leader to capture the area, in the past two weeks, they have not been able to make a significant breakthrough.
Gaining full control of this port city of Mariupol will have strategic implications for Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine. Because:
1. Winning Mariupol will help Russia establish a land connection between the two self-proclaimed republics in the Donbas region and the Crimean peninsula that Russia annexed from 2014.
2. Winning Mariupol will also help Russia control the area bordering the Azov Sea of Ukraine and cut off Ukraine’s connection with the Black Sea. The Russian army captured the Black Sea port of Kherson, about 380km from Mariupol.
3. Acquiring Mariupol would also help the Russians get out of the bog there and take on new missions, like fortifying other fronts.
