Fighting for Krynky: what current situation is on east bank of Kherson region?

Military and political observer Oleksandr Kovalenko says Krynky, which Putin and Shoigu "brought back under control" in February, remains under Ukraine's control

Information Resistance reports.

Against the backdrop of missile strikes, the use of Zircon rockets and the constantly circulating "offensive" on Kharkiv, mixed with the massacre at Crocus City Hall, events on the front lines began to fade into the background. Meanwhile, March is coming to an end, and Krynky, which Putin and Shoigu "brought back under control" in February, remains under Ukraine's control. 

At the moment, a very large group of Russian Armed Forces formations is operating in Krynky:

  • units of the 104th Air Assault Division - 2 brigades;
  • units of the 70th Motorized Rifle Division - 2 motorized rifle regiment and 2 tank battalions (seriously depleted) of the 17th Tank Brigade and 2 divisions of the 81st Self-Propelled Artillery Regiment;
  • units of the 810th Separate Guards Marine Brigade;
  • 144th Separate Mechanized Brigade.

Despite their numerical superiority, the occupation forces have not been able to drive the small units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces out of Krynky for more than six months. It is worth noting that, in addition to Krynky, there are other, so to speak, gray areas.

What are the Russian plans for Dacha? What is happening north of the village of Pidstepne? Why did the Russian troops increase their presence west of Oleshky, near Pidlisne? Why are the Russian units in Hola Prystan nervous when they look north to Bilohrudove? How are Russian tankers doing in the Poima area?

“My point is that over the past year and the beginning of 2024, the Ukrainian Defense Forces managed to hold the most difficult foothold with titanic efforts. Books will be written about how it was done and at what cost, but the Russian enemy lost no less, but many times more, using a grouping comparable to one and a half divisions and two brigades. Using it to no avail,” political observer Kovalenko believes.

Russia will have to focus no less resources on other areas that are not so popular in the information flow. For now.
