Ukrainian forces push back enemy on Kinburn Spit – military spokesperson

Ukraine's defense forces have pushed back the enemy on the Kinburn Spit, but the enemy sporadically fires on the Dnieper-Bug estuary.

Natalia Humeniuk, spokesperson for Ukraine's South Operational Command, said this on national television on Thursday, April 6, according to Ukrinform.

"We are working quite successfully, and there is already some information about this, but it is too early to talk about our gains, so the work is ongoing. And we will report a little later. In general, I can note that we significantly pushed back the enemy on the Kinburn Spit. However, once every two days, the enemy dares to move an artillery piece to show their presence on the western part of the Kinburn Spit and fire on the Dnieper-Bug estuary, hinting that they control sea transport routes. However, the enemy's permanent presence there is not recorded," Humeniuk stressed.

She added that enemy forces are gathering closer to the mainland: "They [enemy forces] are gathering closer to the mainland and are hiding there behind the local population of settlements that are located closer to the mainland."
