Russia expands hospitals in occupied territories amid heavy losses — Ukrainian official
Roman Holovnya, former deputy mayor of Kherson, reports that residents in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson region have observed an increase in the number of hospitals where Russian forces treat their wounded
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"It is worth noting that the intensity of hostilities has increased on the left bank of the Dnipro River. I think that the enemy is raging in this section of the frontline for a reason. The increase in the intensity of hostilities is primarily due to the actions of our military. There is information about the active work of the Ukrainian Armed Forces along the entire Dnipro riverbed," said Holovnya.
He added that Russian forces are constantly relocating their units closer to the banks of the Dnipro.
"Our military are actively working in certain areas of the frontline near the Dnipro banks and in the area of the islands. However, we should wait for more detailed information from our General Staff. Local residents in the temporarily occupied territories of the Kherson region constantly report active movement of the occupiers both towards the banks of the Dnipro and in the other direction. Our citizens also report that Russians are increasing the number of hospitals in the temporarily occupied territories. This indicates heavy losses of the occupiers," he added.
