Russian forces cannot stay in one position on Dnipro’s left bank due to deadly danger
Operational Command South’s spokesperson Natalia Humeniuk says that Russia has concentrated large capacities, human resources, weapons, and equipment on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region
She said this on Espreso TV.
"There are a lot of them on the left bank of the mainland of Ukraine. The enemy had the time and opportunity to concentrate large capacities, human resources, weapons and equipment," the military explains.
Humeniuk noted that the General Staff’s reports state a large number of destroyed artillery systems every day, but Russia is still not running out of equipment, as the shelling of civilian settlements continues.
"The fact that the invading forces are trying to establish alternative routes, in particular, to pull up through Melitopol, means that they feel the fire control. They feel that the Defense Forces are able to establish over other logistics routes. They do not even always know where they are moving to this time, but they clearly understand that staying in the same position is deadly for them," she emphasized.
Ukrainian marines managed to gain a foothold on several bridgeheads on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson sector. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are pushing the Russians as far away from the right bank as possible to protect Ukrainian civilians from constant Russian shelling.

- On November 13, Russian propaganda news agencies RIA Novosti and TASS reported that the Russian Defense Ministry had decided to move troops "to more favorable positions east of Dnipro" in the Kherson region.
