Russian troops raise their flag on Krynky’s ruins, but get eliminated — spokesman for South Volunteer Army South
Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian South Volunteer Army, says the situation on the left bank remains extremely difficult. Russia continues assault attacks on the left bank of the Dnipro River
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"The southern direction remains one of the hottest. The situation on the left bank is extremely complicated as the enemy continues to conduct assault attacks on the left bank of the Dnipro River. Our guys are holding out with extraordinary efforts. The enemy is trying to save their equipment as much as possible, because there are quite effective hits from our side. The army of drones is working, and our artillery is working. However, we know that the enemy attacks will continue," Bratchuk said.
According to the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Volunteer Army South, there is good news from the other side.
"The enemy claimed to have captured Krynky, but this settlement no longer exists. They put their “rag” (Russian flag - ed.) there, which lasted an hour on the ruins, killed over 50 people for such a spectacle, and were forced to retreat. Because they would not see either the “rag” or the personnel again. A blogger who was actively working as part of Russian aerial reconnaissance was speaking how they managed to attack the evacuation of our wounded and dead through the Dnipro River with Russian drones, but they will no longer do this," Bratchuk emphasized.
- On January 14, the American Institute for the Study of War reported that Russian occupying forces in the temporarily occupied Kherson region are increasingly confusing their drones with Ukrainian ones and shooting them down.
- Natalia Humeniuk, head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, said that there are logistical difficulties for Ukrainian troops on the left bank of the Kherson region, but the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to hold their positions.
