Russian troops feel threatened at left bank bridgehead in Kherson region

Oleksandr Voitko, a serviceman with the 14th Detached Regiment of the Air Assault Forces, says that the Russian forces have been unable to do anything with the left bank bridgehead for more than a month

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"The Ukrainian Armed Forces are managing to hold a foothold on the left bank of the Dnipro. The enemy has been unable to do anything with it for over a month. All Ukrainian soldiers working in this area are constantly active because they need to repel daily attacks. We are destroying the enemy's manpower and equipment that is trying to attack this foothold. The Russian army is using artillery and aircraft. They drop guided aerial bombs, attacking mainly with manpower. Sometimes the occupants use several pieces of equipment, but they are careful not to get into the range of our artillery and drones," noted Voitko.

According to a serviceman of the 14th Separate Air Defense Regiment, the enemy is constantly bringing reserves to the left bank of Kherson region, as it suffers daily losses.

"There are various enemy units on the left bank. Here, the Russian troops are using the 10th Army Special Forces Brigade, which means specialists and trained units in assault operations. There are also various motorized rifle units that are less professional, but there are a lot of them. In this direction, the enemy has concentrated about 2-3 brigades in total. The number of Russian army personnel is constantly increasing. The enemy is pulling up reserves because it suffers daily losses. In this area, the invaders do not have such fortifications as in the Zaporizhzhia or Donetsk directions. Therefore, the enemy feels the danger for its positions and logistics," emphasized Voitko,

  • On November 23, the Defense Forces repelled Russian attacks in the Kupyansk, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Marinka directions. The Armed Forces also eliminated 1,100 invaders.
  • Ivan Tymochko, a serviceman and chairman of the Reservists' Council of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, noted that Ukrainian troops are advancing in the Tavria direction.
  • The UK Defense Ministry writes that the Russian troops continue to suffer heavy losses in the war in Ukraine.
