Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers raise Ukrainian flag on the left bank of Kherson. Video
Ukrainian soldiers have raised a blue and yellow flag on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region, near the Antonivka Bridge. This is the village of Dachi, located between Antonovka and Oleshky.
The video was published by Telegram channels. The Ukrainian offensive continues and is very difficult (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).
As noted on the Deep State analytical channel, Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance stepped up its efforts in August, so it has become deadly for the occupiers to be near the Dnipro River. The raising of the Ukrainian flag in Dachi indicates the presence of our garrison there, which has managed to gain a foothold.
Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Maliar commented on the incident to Suspilne. According to her, Ukrainian troops landed on the left bank of the Kherson region "to raise the spirit of people under occupation".
"In order to determine that the left bank is Ukraine. The military have returned, the flag is still up, and the counter-battery fight is ongoing," Gumenyuk said.
As a reminder, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have liberated Robotyno, Zaporizhzhia region, and broken through the first line of defence of the Russian occupiers. Analysts suggest that the next line may be less defended, allowing Ukrainian defenders to advance more easily. At the same time, the military urges not to exaggerate the significance of Robotyno's release.
According to Kateryna Stepanenko, an analyst at the Institute for War Studies, the de-occupation of Robotyno brings the Ukrainian military closer to the city of Tokmak, which is one of the Russian army's strongholds in this area. As a result, the Defence Forces will be able to strike at the Russian rear.
