Russian ‘whining’ about cut-off logistics on Dnipro's left bank is fabrication
Operational Command South's spokesperson Natalia Humeniuk says that Russia still has the ability to bring heavy artillery to the Kinburn Spit
She said this on Espreso TV.
"Our reports indicate that the opposite bank of the Dnipro-Buh estuary is being shelled from the Kinburn Spit. From time to time, the enemy reminds us of itself, and it does not plan to withdraw its units from there completely. This is a confirmation that their "whining" about the cut-off logistics may be a fabrication. Things are not so bad there for us to hope that the occupying Russian forces will give up and leave," emphasized Humeniuk.
According to her, from time to time Russia still has the opportunity to bring heavy artillery and MLRS to the Kinburn Spit.
"We are assessing the situation objectively. The Russian forces are attacking the Ochakiv and Kutsurub communities precisely because it has a land corridor to the Kinburn Spit. The Kinburn Spit, like a peninsula, connects to the temporarily occupied Kherson region on the left bank. Until everything is completely cleared there, we cannot say that these communities will ‘exhale’ in peace," said Humeniuk.
