Bridgehead on eastern bank of Kherson region is extremely promising - military expert Zgurets
Defense Express analyst Serhiy Zgurets believes that the bridgehead on the left bank of the Kherson region is extremely promising for the Armed Forces at the operational and tactical level
Zgurets shared his views on Espreso.
"The bridgehead maintained by our marines on the left bank of the Kherson Oblast is crucial from both operational and tactical perspectives. Operating in this area is challenging for our marines due to the constant need for supplies across the Dnipro River," he stated.
Zgurets highlighted the impact of Defense Forces activity.
"The losses inflicted by our units on the enemy significantly influence the ongoing hostilities on the left bank of the Kherson region. The enemy is compelled to sustain a substantial troop presence due to our units' actions. Additionally, the Russians cannot predict the future dynamics, as securing the Dnipro crossing becomes increasingly challenging for us. Despite these challenges, considering our unit's objectives, this bridgehead remains highly promising," he pointed out.
