Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reported “good news” in the east, saying some settlements had been recaptured as both sides reported heavy fighting. Security researcher Ruslan Trad hinted that Ukraine is succeeding in its retaliation.

He said: “Telegram channels are full of graphic images and video footage of Russian soldiers in Kherson and eastern Ukraine.

“For the last few hours, the Russian army has been experiencing serious blows. Entire units have been wiped out.”

The British Ministry of Defence added that Ukraine is slowing Russia’s ability to deploy operational reserves and resupply forces in the east as they target “vulnerable crossing points”.

Ukraine slowing Russia’s deploy operations, says MOD

Ukraine is slowing Russia’s ability to deploy operational reserves and resupply forces in the east as they target “vulnerable crossing points”, according to the British Ministry of Defence (MOD)

In its latest intelligence update, the ministry said Ukraine continues its counter-offensive in Kherson. 

“Ukraine has probably destroyed a military pontoon bridge at Darivka, which Russian forces had deployed after the nearby road bridge was severely damaged,” it added.

Darivika is one of the main crossings between the northern and southern sectors of Russia’s presence along the Dnipro river. 

The ministry added: “Ukraine’s systematic precision targeting of vulnerable crossing points likely continues to impose pressure on Russian forces as they attempt to contain Ukrainian attacks: it slows their ability to deploy operational reserves and resupply materiel from the east.”
