Russian Claims and Ukrainian Reality

Russian accounts suggest that their forces successfully repelled attacks near the focal point of the eastern front, Bakhmut, as well as in other areas. However, the reports from both sides cannot be independently verified.

Losses in Kherson and Kharkiv Regions

The governor of Kherson region, Oleksandr Prokudin, confirmed the death of a man due to Russian shelling in the northern part of the region. Earlier, Prokudin had reported that a dozen people were wounded in various localities. Additionally, in northeastern Kharkiv region, Governor Oleh Synehubov stated that a man lost his life in shelling near the Russian border.

Strategic Retreat and Ongoing Attacks

Russian troops had previously withdrawn from the city of Kherson and the western bank of the Dnipro River in the region. However, they continue to shell these areas from positions on the eastern bank. Ukrainian forces in the south have been making progress, capturing clusters of villages as they advance towards the Sea of Azov to disrupt the land bridge created by Russian forces occupying southern and eastern Ukraine.

Encouraging Signs of Success

Oleksandr Shtupun, spokesperson for the Ukrainian troops in the south, revealed that Russian forces have resorted to using older weaponry such as howitzers and cannons. This suggests that Ukrainian forces have been successful in neutralizing enemy equipment. However, he acknowledged the challenges posed by the abundance of Russian military equipment.

As the situation unfolds, both sides continue to engage in the conflict, and Ukraine remains determined to regain control of its territories. The international community closely watches the developments, hoping for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing crisis.
