Make no mistake, making this very public is a sure message.
Interesting to see do we get a follow-on presser of marine landings.
Just to clear things up for people not familiar with the area: Gogland was taken by Soviet Union in 1944, it's part of Russia. Only like 40km from city of Kotka, Finland. Check the map:
