Russian forces panic: Kherson official on situation on Dnipro's left bank
Serhiy Khlan, a member of the Kherson Regional Council, believes that the gray zone on the left bank of the Dnipro River will continue to expand, and that Russian occupiers cannot counter the effective actions of Ukrainian forces
He expressed this opinion on the Espreso TV channel
"It should be understood that attention has been focused on the left bank of the Dnipro for a long time. In particular, from Oleshky to Nova Kakhovka. For several weeks now, we have been seeing reports from the American Institute for the Study of War about the expansion of the bridgehead and the expansion of the gray zone. We also have cautious comments from the Southern Operational Command. However, at the same time, we are witnessing panic among Russian occupiers in their publics. Russian military commanders are also panicking about the actions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the left bank of the Dnipro River," Khlan said.
According to Khlan, the grey zone on the left bank of the Dnipro will expand
"The gray zone on the left bank of Dnipro is expanding. The occupiers cannot do anything about it. Amid this, today there was news from well-known Russian resources that the occupiers had allegedly decided to retreat to better positions. Then they began to deny the news. All this indicates that they cannot do anything against the successful actions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces," he added.
- On November 13, the American Institute for the Study of War reported that over the past day, 12 November, the Ukrainian Defense Forces had some success in advancing in a ground operation on the left bank of the Kherson region.
- On November 13, the Russian propaganda news agencies RIA Novosti and TASS reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense had decided to move troops "to more favorable positions east of the Dnipro" in Kherson region. Later, they retracted these statements, and the Ministry of Defense called them a provocation. The Ukrainian resistance also denied this information.
