Ukrainian forces holding firm against Russian attacks in on left bank of Dnipro in Kherson Oblast:
Ukrainian forces are maintain control over a stretch of several kilometers on the left bank of Kherson Oblast, fending off multiple attempted incursions by Russian occupiers, spokesperson for the southern defense forces, Natalia Humeniuk, said on Dec. 20.
Despite more than 30 assaults in the past day, Russian forces have been unable to dislodge Ukrainian troops from their positions.
“It’s a significant achievement considering that we currently control a stretch of several kilometers, while the enemy possesses substantial potential on the left bank,” said Humeniuk.
“However, we observe a considerable amount of enemy equipment destroyed in this area, a result, in part, of robust counter-battery support provided to our units performing combat missions.”
The Russian army is deploying reserves in the form of a Z-shaped company to the left bank, favoring “meaty assaults.” Humeniuk also noted frequent actions by Russian units “on foot” without the support of vehicles, indicating, she said, the invaders were taking cost-cutting measures.
Developments in Left Bank Kherson
Since Nov. 17, Ukrainian fighters have officially confirmed their presence on several strongholds on the occupied left bank of the Dnipro River.
From mid-October, the U.S.-based think tank Institute for the Study of War (ISW) has reported on the successes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and their advancement on the left bank of Kherson Oblast. They reported a breakthrough across the Dnipro into the occupied part of the region near the villages of Oleshkivska Hromada. --->READ MORE HERE
