Russian occupiers in Crimea are preparing to repel attacks of the Ukrainian Defence Forces, the Ukrainian Defence Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate has said.
Russians are trying to further strengthen the coastline, fearing the landing of Ukrainian troops.
"In particular, a network of minefields, fighting holes and trenches has recently been set up along the coast near the village of Molochne (Saky District). Additionally, the so-called 'dragon's teeth' are being installed - rows of concrete pyramids that should stop the advance of heavy equipment," the intelligence said.
Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov earlier said that the Russian army may launch a major new offensive in the war against Ukraine in February 2023.
