"Russians pulled up reserves": OC South shared details about the situation on the left bank of the Dnipro River
Russia has increased the number of professional marines and paratroopers on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region. At the same time, discord within the occupation army prevents them from achieving their goals, making the enemy lose confidence in their actions.
Natalia Humeniuk, a spokesperson for the South Command, told Channel 24. She also stated that the number of Storm Z units in the Kherson region has decreased.
"They have pulled up operational reserves using marines and air assault troops. But at the same time, they have a significant moral and psychological dissonance," the spokeswoman noticed.
She explained that experienced soldiers are aware of the seriousness of the operation and that it will fail in the absence of support from aviation and armored vehicles. However, appeals to the command on this issue do not yield results and only cause internal disputes.
According to Humeniuk, the occupiers' assault actions are wave-like: 9-10 assaults per day when they are accumulating forces, and 2-4 when internal misunderstandings begin.
The spokesperson assured that the Defense Forces are in control of the situation, so Russian attacks are mostly ineffective. She also added that a "no-return zone" of armored vehicles destroyed by the defenders has been set up near the Ukrainian bridgehead.
"By crossing this psychological line, the enemy loses confidence in its own actions," Humeniuk noted.
