Rusland zegt dat het de terugtrekking uit Cherson heeft voltooid
November 11, 2022 - Russia says it had completed the withdrawal of troops from the western bank of the Dnipro river, as the Ukrainian army claims major gains.
The Russian defence ministry says the "redeployment" - this means withdrawal - of forces to the eastern side of the Dnipro River has finished.
In its daily update, the Russian defence ministry military said “At 05:00 Moscow time today, the redeployment of Russian units to the left (eastern) bank of the Dnipro River was completed.
During the redeployment, not a single piece of military hardware or weaponry was left behind.
All Russian service personnel were moved across, there were no losses of men, hardware or material of the Russian forces group.“
However, Pro-Russian war bloggers had reported late on Thursday that Russian forces crossing the river were coming under heavy fire from Ukrainian forces. The ministry said Ukrainian forces had struck Dnipro River crossings five times overnight with U.S.-supplied HIMARS rocket systems.
