"As for the situation in Zaporizhzhia section. The enemy does not conduct active and large-scale operations," Colonel Yevhen Yerin, head of the Joint Press Center of the Defense Forces of the Tavriya direction, said during the nationwide news telethon.
At the same time, he noted that the enemy’s regular attempts to assault the positions of the Ukrainian military with small groups of up to ten people are recorded. According to him, the Russian troops had certain successes in some areas, but currently, all positions of the Defense Forces of Ukraine have been restored.
Yerin added that the current situation in the Tavria section still remains difficult. In particular, the enemy keeps shelling civilian and critical infrastructure. In this context, he emphasized that the main target of Russian troops is civilian infrastructure.
As reported, the National Defence Ministry of Canada stated that Russia’s poorly-equipped and inadequately-trained forces will very likely not be able to conduct a successful offensive along the Zaporizhzhia frontline in the next few months.
