Russian retreat to Snake Island – WSJ

Russian soldiers withdrew Thursday from Snake Island, a small but important Black Sea outpost. The Ukrainian victory does not signal a major change in the course of the war, but it weakens the Black Sea blockade imposed by the Kremlin.

Snake Island is located just off the coast near the Ukraine-Romania border and close to the mouth of the Danube. Capturing it was a top priority when Russia launched its invasion. He succeeded, but only after the soldiers defending him told the Russian warship you-know-what.
