The Telegraph was reporting an overnight operation to liberate Snake Island. The Russians claim they shot down fifteen drones there yesterday. They also reckon Ukraine tried this back in May and lost a load of aircraft and special forces (no photographic evidence either way).
While strategically important I'm not sure how easily Ukraine could hold Snake Island. Its a risky place to get supplies in and out of.
i think its more a case of deny its use to Russia rather than reclaim and hold - it dominates the exit/approach to Odessa but i cant see any other islands in the area
if they could reclaim then great, but even making it a contested area might have 2 effects - it would allow (risky) passage of ships out of Odessa, and might drag in more Russian assets for a whacking
