ISW: AFU began using tactical attack aviation in Kherson region
Ukrainian troops have begun to use tactical attack aircraft more actively in the Kherson region. The Russian occupiers complain that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are using aircraft near the village of Krynky.
It is worth noting that the active use of tactical attack aircraft became possible due to the problems of the air defense of the Russian army. This is stated in the analysis of the Institute for War Studies.
The analysts said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine forced the Russian occupation army to abandon some positions south of Krynky through ground operations and the use of aviation. It is noteworthy that the problems with Russian air defense are recognized by the occupiers themselves, and they complain that now Ukrainian troops can use tactical attack aircraft more intensively near the front line.
ISW also emphasized that Ukrainian troops continued limited ground attacks on the left bank of the Kherson region. Ukrainian forces reportedly attacked the areas of Poyma (10 km southeast of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro River), Pishchanivka (13 km southeast of Kherson), Pidstepne (18 km east of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro River), and Krynky (30 km northeast of Kherson and 2 km from the Dnipro River).
At the same time, Russian propagandists continue to complain about inadequate Russian counter-battery, electronic warfare, air defense, and assault operations along the Dnipro River in the Kherson region. The Russian Federation has claimed that the Russian Armed Forces Command is inadequately and ineffectively using the 10th Special Forces Brigade to conduct frontal attacks on Ukrainian positions on the left bank.
Earlier, it was reported that it would be difficult for the Russian military command to deploy combat-ready reinforcements to respond to the Ukrainian Armed Forces' operations on the left bank of the Kherson region. In particular, while simultaneously defending its positions in western Zaporizhzhia and supporting other offensive efforts in eastern Ukraine.
As OBOZ.UA reported earlier, according to ISW, the Ukrainian Defense Forces may conduct larger-scale operations on the left bank of the Kherson region. The Russian occupiers, who are now entrenched on this bank of the Dnipro, are already panicking.
