Russia may cease assaults in Kherson's eastern region for some time — Ukraine's Southern Defense Forces
Colonel Natalia Humeniuk, spokesperson for the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, noted that the assault operations on the left bank of the Kherson region did not yield the results desired by the Russian military and political leadership, so they have now resorted to air attacks
She shared the information on Espreso TV.
"In recent days, we have seen an increase in enemy attacks, up to 18. But the last two days were characterized by an extraordinary decline in such activity. Instead, the enemy is trying to use unguided aircraft missiles from tactical aircraft. The enemy is attacking with great caution, as they realize that our air defense work against their aircraft in this area eloquently convinces them that it is not worth the risk. However, it is obvious that the assault did not give the occupiers the results that their military and political leadership demanded. That is why the enemy has now resorted to air attacks," commented Humeniuk.
According to her, Russian troops launched 8 unguided missiles at Krynky over the past day, while only three assault actions were recorded.
"Our report also indicates a significant destruction of armored vehicles, surpassing 10 units. This suggests that the assault actions may be "frozen" for a certain period, possibly influenced by weather conditions, making it challenging for the invaders to stay on the left bank," noted Natalia Humeniuk.
