Armed Forces of Ukraine trying to mop up 30km zone of left-bank Kherson region

Ukrainian defenders are doing everything possible to mop up a 20-30 km zone on the left bank of Kherson region from invaders.

"So far, we are working to make the enemy feel our presence, our pressure. In particular, as part of the counter-battery confrontation, we are trying to mop up 20-30 km [zone] on the left bank. This is quite a difficult task and it is complicated by the fact that the enemy is constantly shielding itself with civilians, trying to hide its units and equipment bases in the yards of local residents behind residential buildings," Natalia Humeniuk, the head of the joint press center of the Operational Command "South", said during the nationwide news telethon, commenting on the situation in the southern direction and the possibility of another enemy offensive.

At the same time, the efforts of the Armed Forces are quite effective. In particular, the number of strikes from Kinburn Spit has decreased significantly as an ammunition supply and storage point was hit. Currently, the invaders do not have powerful support and even land movement is difficult for them as the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to keep the isthmus that links the mainland of the left bank with the Kinburn peninsula under fire control.

Humeniuk noted that, unfortunately, the enemy continued to shell Kherson city and its suburbs.
