Given the size of the island and the amount of equipment and positions that Russia has crammed on to it. Pretty anything landing on it is going to hit something.

Red circles = Trenches, Revetments, Sentry points – That appear to have not been damaged in recent attack.

1) "Odessa MP Honcharenko says Russians have retreated from strategic rock Snake Island, leaving on 5 small boats and blowing up hardware on way out. This has not been confirmed by Ukrainian command, but if true would be first clear victory for Western long-range rocket systems."

2) "Withdrawal has just been confirmed by Ukrainian military command. A significant victory reducing prospect of Odessa landing, but only one step in a long road to regain use of Black Sea."

Oliver Carroll, Jun 30, 2022.

Russia's war ministry has confirmed the evacuation from the Snake Island as a "goodwill gesture" toward Ukraine.

"Commander in chief Zaluzhny says a little known long-range Ukrainian howitzer, the Bohdana, played "considerable role" in liberation of Snake Island. There is reportedly only 1 Bohdana ever produced. Zaluzhny also thanks international partners for "firepower assistance"."

The instrument in question — max reported range of 50km with rocket-assisted projectile, which puts it in Snake Island range. Other reports suggests HIMARS, French CAESAR were used.

Video of the Bohdana firing on Snake Island?

Wow those Russian su-30 really put the hurt on the water… Takes a special kind of skill to miss an island. I truly had higher expectations on the Russian pilots than this.
