Russia tries to drive Ukrainian armed forces out of eastern bank of Dnipro river in Kherson region
Russia is gathering 10,000 troops near Krynky, Kherson region, in an attempt to stop Ukrainian troops expanding their bridgehead
This was reported by Nataliya Humenyuk, spokeswoman for the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine, during a telethon.
"Our efforts to consolidate and expand the bridgehead continue, with the enemy attempting to dislodge our units. There's not a single house left undamaged, with intense artillery fire from both sides. The enemy has significantly bombarded this region," Humeniuk notes.
According to Humeniuk, approximately 10,000 Russian troops are concentrated in the Krynky area.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine urged local residents to evacuate the active conflict zone.
- In the temporarily occupied Kherson region, Russian occupying troops frequently mistake Ukrainian drones for their own, resulting in the downing of these UAVs.
