Ukrainian military gain foothold in Robotyne, make preparations for further actions

Ukrainian defenders continue gaining a foothold in the Zaporizhzhia region’s de-occupied village of Robotyne.

The relevant statement was made by Spokesperson for the Joint Press Center of the Defense Forces in the Tavria direction Oleksandr Shtupun during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We continue gaining a foothold in Robotyne. Stabilization measures and demining efforts are underway, as well as preparations for further actions. Over the past day, our warriors have gained some success to the southeast of this settlement,” Shtupun told.

In his words, following the de-occupation of Robotyne, Ukraine can send more troops there and have better maneuvering opportunities. Also, Robotyne is situated on the highway to Tokmak, which makes it an important logistic route.

Tokmak is located around 20 kilometers away from Robotyne. Shtupun believes Russians will not leave this settlement easily, and Ukrainian forces will have to fight for it.
