Russian troops suffer from counter-battery fighting, their reserves are not that powerful – Ukrainian official
Operational Command South's spokesperson Natalia Humeniuk says that the invading Russian troops are trying to transfer reserves from the Kherson region to the Zaporizhzhia front
She shared this information with Espreso TV.
"Russia is maneuvering its forces and equipment taking into account the extent of its losses in the Zaporizhzhia sector, including Tokmak. The invading forces are trying to pull up reserves from the Kherson direction. However, due to the fact that the occupiers are suffering from counter-battery fighting, the reserves are not so powerful to strengthen any other direction," emphasized Humeniuk.
According to her, the occupying Russian troops are trying to organize the supply of reserves from the Crimean peninsula.
"It's difficult, it's slow and doesn't match the pace of the military operations, but the Russians are gradually trying to do it," added Humeniuk.
- Freedom Legion fighter Kostiantyn Denysov says that fierce fighting continues at the Zaporizhzhia front, with Russian artillery and aviation hampering the advance.
- The Institute for the Study of War writes that Ukrainian defenders continue offensive actions near Bakhmut in the Donetsk region and in the west of Zaporizhzhia region.
