Ukraine’s Defense Forces repel three Russian assaults on Dnipro’s left bank

Russian invasion forces undertook three unsuccessful attempts at assaults on Ukraine’s positions on the left bank of the Dnipro in Kherson region.

That’s according to the press service of Defense Forces South, Ukrinform reports.

"Daily counter-battery battles continue in the operational zone of Defense Forces South. The enemy does not abandon their intentions to dislodge our units from their positions," the report reads.

On the left bank of the Dnipro in Kherson region, the invaders dared to storm Ukrainian positions three times, with all their attempts being traditionally fruitless.

"We hold our positions. Having suffered losses (nearly three dozen killed and wounded), the enemy retreated to their original positions," the Defense Forces said.
