Ukraine’s Army continues to move frontline southwards in Kherson Oblast – Operational Command South’s spox

Latest news Ukraine

The Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to move the front line southward in Kherson Oblast, the head of the joint press center of Operational Command South, Natalia Humeniuk, said on the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

According to her, the Ukrainian defense forces continue to move the front line despite the fact that the Russian forces have been very firmly entrenched there with their defensive lines. She didn’t provide any further details as to the advances of the Ukrainian troops in Kherson Oblast.

“I’d like to note that one should be very critical of the messages that we hear amid this hybrid war. The Russian puppet occupation government is very powerfully focused on the information front, in order to sow panic among the population,” Humeniuk emphasized.

Previously, Ukraine’s General Staff reported that Russian troops abandoned two key villages on the way to the area’s key city of Beryslav:
