Ukraine asks for “informational silence” as fighting for Kherson Oblast continues

Ukraine needs “informational silence” to report on great successes later as fighting on the Russian-occupied left bank of the Dnipro River in the southern Kherson Oblast continues, said Natalia Humeniuk, press officer for Operational Command South. 

“I cannot reveal all the measures we are currently taking, but it is obvious that the enemy is being pressed (by our measures). For now, we are asking for informational silence so that our plans are put in motion, it will allow us to report on great successes later,” Humeniuk said during a national TV marathon. 

According to the press officer, Russian troops are aware that the advance of the Ukrainian Army is “inevitable,” but they cannot calculate from which direction they can expect such a danger. 

Humeniuk added that Ukraine is pushing occupiers on a line from 3 to 8km along the coast from the water’s edge of the Dnipro River. “The front line is quite fluid today,” she said.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s chief of staff Andrii Yermak said the Ukrainian Army had gained a foothold on the left side of the river and had been preparing to advance.
