"Now, the enemy is concentrating its efforts mainly on the Mariupol direction and in the Azov Sea area," said the military official.

According to Nayev, the Sea of ​​Azov is of particular interest to Russia, since Moscow sees the opportunity for further encroachment on the territory of Ukraine.

“And above all, Moscow seeks to create a land corridor to the Crimean Peninsula occupied by Russia,” he is convinced.
