"Ukrainian defenders continue to hold the bridgehead on the left bank of the Dnipro River. It is a difficult and very dangerous job. Thanks to our brave soldiers, the number of attacks on Kherson has decreased. The guys are taking the brunt of the attack and the shells that could have hit hospitals and kindergartens on the right bank. Ukrainian defenders are taking this fire. Not everyone is capable of such selfless work," Tolokonnikov said.
According to the head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration press office, heavy fighting is taking place on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region.
