Ukrainian troops advance on left bank of Kherson region — ISW
On November 12, the Ukrainian Defense Forces made some progress in their ground operation on the left bank of the Kherson region
This is stated in the report of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).
According to geolocated footage from November 12, Ukrainian forces have slightly advanced further into Krynky (30 km northeast of Kherson and 2 km from the Dnipro River).
Russian military bloggers claimed that Russian troops had tried in vain to push Ukrainian forces back from Krynky, while the Ukrainian Armed Forces were conducting offensive operations near the villages of Poyma (10 km southeast of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro River), Pishchanivka (13 km southeast of Kherson and 3 km from the Dnipro River), and Pidstepne (17 km east of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro River).
According to the military bloggers, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have deployed additional personnel to the Krynky area and intend to cut Russian logistics lines and strike at the infrastructure connecting the Russian front line with rear areas in the temporarily occupied Crimea, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions.
According to the Institute, Ukrainian defenders are likely to advance to the E58 Oleshky-Kamianka highway and could threaten Russian positions near the E58-E97 intersection south of the Poyma-Pishchanivka-Pidstepne line.
According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, 69 combat clashes took place in the frontline yesterday. In the Kherson direction, Ukrainian defenders are conducting counter-battery combat, inflicting fire on the enemy's rear.
