Most of the territory of the Kherson region is now occupied by the aggressor. Under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are separate areas in the west towards Mykolaiv and in the north-west, tens of kilometers from Krivoy Rog, and in these areas the Ukrainian command has organized a series of successful counterattacks in recent weeks.
While the Kremlin pulled its main forces to the Donbass, our army managed to gain a foothold in the area of Davydov Brod and the Ingulets River, and also get a little closer to Kherson. The Russian invaders do not have enough strength to attack in several directions at once, they are forced to concentrate on a separate sector.
"This is the improvement of Ukrainian positions and the preparation of a bridgehead for a future offensive. Our forces have managed to achieve some success there. We are gradually moving forward. In any case, we are approaching Kherson. But the scale of advance there is small right now" military expert Oleg Zhdanov explained.
Another military observer reports: “I would like to believe in the speedy outcome of events. But for now we can talk about some very significant advances towards Kherson. This is how you can assess the approach of Ukrainian units to Kherson. But I would not be in a hurry to say that the city will soon be liberated. Today we have certain advantages there for the simple reason that Russian troops are transferring units from there to the Luhansk region and Zaporozhye Therefore, they are forced to defend a very wide front there. But for now, I would not be in a hurry to talk about the capture of Kherson."
“The military would not want to expose the city to destruction. That is, we act differently, unlike how the russians act, who compare our cities to dust. We have the task of causing as little destruction as possible in this regard,” the observer explained.
Recall that residents of the temporarily occupied Kherson refused to participate in the imposition of Russian citizenship on them through the distribution of Russian passports.
Also, the partisans of Kherson continue their work to demotivate the enemy. Here is one example:
Citizens of Kherson are also distributing leaflets threatening the Russian military. But some patriots of Ukraine go further - over the past two weeks, it became known about several destroyed ammunition depots of russian troops.
In the temporarily occupied Novaya Kakhovka, an ammunition depot and enemy air defense were covered. According to local media, at least 44 russians were killed, the rest were injured.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky ordered to de-occupy the south of Ukraine, - Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov. According to him, Zelensky ordered the Ukrainian military to retake the occupied coastal areas, which are vital to the country's economy. Therefore, Ukraine is now gathering millions of military forces equipped with Western weapons in order to fulfill the order to liberate the occupied territories in the south of the country.
We only wish the Ukrainian army good luck and call on everyone to help it with taxes, donations and equipment.
