Ukraine startet Vorstoß zur Rückeroberung von Cherson

By Jordi Bou

August 30, 2022 - Ukrainische Truppen haben die russische Verteidigung an einigen Sektoren der Front durchbrochen. Es ist die seit langem erwartete Gegenoffensive um den Süden des Landes wieder in Besitz zu nehmen.

Ukraine said its ground forces had gone on the offensive in the south for the first time after a long period of striking Russian supply lines, in particular bridges across the strategically-important River Dnipro, and ammunition dumps.

A Ukrainian military source told CNN that its forces have taken back four villages near the city of Kherson after breaking through the frontline in three places, with the main target being Kherson. The source said the village names are Nova Dmytrivka, Arkhanhel’s’ke, Tomyna Balka and Pravdyne.

The Kremlin has insisted that its so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine is going to plan despite the news that Kyiv’s troops have launched a counteroffensive in the south of the country.

Ukraine, now armed with sophisticated Western-supplied weapons, sees retaking the region as crucial to prevent Russian attempts to seize more territory further to the west that could eventually cut off its access to the Black Sea.
