Russian forces unprepared for Ukrainian army's actions on Dnipro's left bank – AFU serviceman
Ivan Tymochko, a military serviceman in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, mentioned that effective fire control over the left bank of the Dnipro enabled specific operations by the Ukrainian Defense Forces
These remarks were made during an interview on Espreso.
"It's too early to discuss large-scale combat operations on the left bank of the Dnipro. There's info that the Ukrainian Armed Forces have secured a few small footholds in that area. The Defense Forces' goal is to establish a frontline reaching into the rear of the southern Russian military district. The Russians seem unprepared for this, both in terms of information and military readiness," noted Tymochko.
Thanks to Ukrainian Armed Forces' control over the left bank of the Dnipro, movement, and actions by the Defense Forces were possible.
"Our troops have occupied bridgeheads like Antonivsky Bridge, Krynky, and Kozachi Laheri on the left bank. The strategy was to prevent the enemy from approaching, subjecting them to our artillery fire. Currently, the enemy is compelled to stretch their reserves, as the left bank is a direct route to Crimea," added Tymochko.
