Russians trapped. “They won’t be able to get out of there”

– I do not really believe that the opponent will be able to roll (in Kherson) Street battles. This is not an optimal option for them. Thanks to the (American) HIMARS rocket launchers and other types of artillery weapons, we now have fire control over all bridges across the Dnieper. Staying in Kherson means a risk for the Russians, because later they will not be able to escape from there, as was the case in, for example, Izium, Reznikov said.

Ukraine’s defense minister added that the counteroffensive by Ukrainian forces in the south of the country, in the Kherson region, had slowed down; He cited rainy weather as the reasons and the fact that Russian troops use irrigation canals as trenches.

On Tuesday, Ukrainian military expert Oleh Zhdanov said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the defense of Kherson at all costs, so the enemy will “fight to the last soldier” there. He added that the authorities in Kiev should not expect a quick and easy regaining of control over Kherson. Rather, long, grueling fights are to be expected there.

The city of Kherson, most of the Kherson region and the southern part of the neighboring Zaporizhia region have been under Russian occupation since the beginning of March. At the end of September, illegal referenda were held in these areas, as well as in the enemy-occupied territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine, sanctioning the annexation of the conquered territories to Russia. The Kremlin’s decision has not been recognized by most countries in the world, including all EU and NATO member states.

A Ukrainian counteroffensive is underway in the northern part of the Kherson region. In recent weeks, the Russian occupation authorities have ordered the evacuation of civilians from Kherson. Some institutions from Moscow are also transferred to the eastern bank of the Dnieper. According to reports from the Ukrainian authorities, and also, inter alia, British Defense Ministry, the Russians are preparing for the fighting in the capital of the oblast.
