ISW: Ukrainian forces advance on east bank of Kherson region, send reinforcements
On November 29, Ukrainian forces continued ground attacks on the left bank of the Dnipro River, Kherson region, and advanced near Krynky
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported the information.
Russian sources claimed that Ukrainian forces had advanced southwest of Krynky (30 km northeast of the city of Kherson and 2 km from the Dnipro River) and gained a foothold in a nearby forest.
Russian military bloggers claimed that fighting was ongoing near Krynky, with Russian aircraft and artillery striking the area.
Ukraine's General Staff reported that Ukrainian troops were holding positions on the eastern bank of the Dnipro River.
Russian military bloggers claimed that Ukrainian troops continued to move new assault groups to the left bank and that 300 to 400 Ukrainian soldiers were operating near Krynky.
Russia's constant statements about the arrival of Ukrainian reinforcements on the eastern bank of the Dnipro River suggest that Russian troops are trying to thwart Ukraine's attempts to supply and strengthen its positions on the eastern bank of the Kherson region.
In addition, military analysts have stated that Russia is clearly unable to create a cohesive command structure among the forces defending the eastern (left) bank of the Kherson region. Russia's morale and combat capabilities continue to deteriorate there. On November 29, the General Staff of Ukraine reported that units of the 810th Separate Marine Brigade (Black Sea Fleet) operating near Krynky refuse to assault Ukrainian positions due to the lack of weapons, artillery coordination, intelligence, and information on the location of Russian minefields.
Also today, on November 30, ISW experts said that Russia may have conflicts with Central Asian countries due to the recruitment of mercenaries for the war in Ukraine.
