Ukrainian artillery struck at Russian troops on captured floating drilling rigs

On the morning of June 20, Ukrainian artillery struck at positions of the Russian military on the seized floating drilling rigs of NJSC Company Chornomornaftogaz in the Black Sea. This is reported by so-called "chairman of the Crimea" Sergey Aksenov.

Russian troops used the captured drilling rigs to monitor the Black Sea, placing military equipment directly on the drilling rigs.

Along with the occupation of Crimea in early 2014, Russia also seized Chornomornaftogaz's drilling rigs. In total, at that time Ukraine had four drilling rigs. Two old ones: Sivash and Tavrida. And also two new ones (the so-called "Boyko's Drilling Rigs"): "Petro Godovanets" and "Independence".
