Fighting in Ukraine Shifts as Russian Troops Advance in South; Ukrainian Armed Forces Repel Russian Assaults on 3 Fronts; Ukrainian Unit Digs In for Russian Assault on Eastern City; Pisky is Still Controlled by the Ukrainian Military, Despite Russian Claims of Capture, LIVE UPDATES and MORE

Fighting in Ukraine shifts as Russian troops advance in south:
The war in Ukraine entered a new deadlier phase Saturday as Russian troops advanced into the country’s south and shelling was reported at a power complex in the area, igniting fears of a nuclear disaster.
A British intelligence report warned that Russian troops are making headway into southern Ukraine, and predicted the fighting would now shift from the Donbas region in the eastern part of the country to Kherson and the Crimea Peninsula in the south.
“Russia’s war with Ukraine is about to enter a new phase, with the heaviest fighting shifting to a roughly 350km front line stretching southwest from near Zaporizhzhya to Kherson, paralleling the Dnieper River,” Britain’s Defense Ministry said.
“Russian forces are almost certainly massing in the south in anticipation of Ukraine’s counter-offensive or in preparation for a possible assault,” the intelligence report added.
On Friday, explosions were reported at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power complex, which Russian forces took over in March. The plant, the largest in Europe, is on the banks of the Dniepro River in southern Ukraine. --->READ MORE HERE
