Situatie Oekraïne dag 254

By Jordi Bou

November 4, 2022 - President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has said 4.5 million Ukrainians in Kyiv and in ten other regions are without power following Russian attacks on the country’s energy network.

In recent weeks, Russia has carried out large-scale missile and drone attacks on Ukrainian power facilities.

The strikes come as a Russian-installed official in southern Ukraine said Moscow will likely pull its troops from the west bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson, possibly signalling a retreat that would be a setback to Russia's war.

The Kyiv government and Western military analysts remained cautious, suggesting Russia could be setting a trap for advancing Ukrainian troops.

U.S. intelligence reports that it is still unclear whether Russian forces will defend Kherson City despite the ongoing withdrawal of some Russian elements from northwestern Kherson Oblast.
