BREAKING: Ukraine has begun a major counteroffensive to recapture Kherson, a crucial Russian-occupied city. Russian army retreating.
Ukrainian forces have launched a much-anticipated counteroffensive in the south of the country, including around Kherson, a spokesperson for Ukraine's southern military command announced on Monday.

Driving the news: The announcement followed reports of Ukrainian artillery strikes on Russian positions in Kherson Oblast, and unconfirmed claims from Ukrainian officials that Russia's "first line of defense" near Kherson had been breached.

The latest: Two senior U.S. officials said that Ukraine is targeting Russian weapons systems, command and control centers and ammunition depots in preparation for advances in southern Ukraine.

Andriy Yermak, chief of staff to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, tweeted, "Kherson is [Ukraine]. Our Kherson is ahead."

Re: BREAKING: Ukraine has begun a major counteroffensive to recapture Kherson, a crucial Russian-occupied city. Russian army retreating.
It’s really happening. I thought they were bluffing.

Ukraine says a new military push is underway and has broken through front-line Russian defenses in the south


Ukraine said Monday that its forces launched a military offensive in multiple directions in the south.

It said an offensive push broke through some front-line Russian defenses near the occupied city Kherson.

The move possibly signals the start of a long-awaited Ukrainian counteroffensive.

Monday's reports signal the start of Ukraine's long-awaited counteroffensive along the war's southern front near Kherson, which was the first major city to fall to Russian forces in early March. Ukraine has been inferring such a move for months, but it hasn't materialized.

Confirmed by Russian State Media…they seem to be evacuating from parts of Kherson already. The Russian army is in defend and retreat mode now.

Re: BREAKING: Ukraine has begun a major counteroffensive to recapture Kherson, a crucial Russian-occupied city. Russian army retreating.
On Monday, Ukraine's Kakhovka operational group in the south said that one regiment of Russian-backed forces had left its positions in the Kherson region.
It added that Russian paratroopers providing the back-up had fled the battlefield.

Ukraine's Hromadske TV said three of its sources in Ukraine's military confirmed that the first line of defence had been broken.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian army spokeswoman Natalia Humeniuk said "any military operation requires 'silence' regime", urging Ukrainians to be patient.

"Our main efforts have been focused on destroying the enemy's ammunition storage bases. More than 10 of such bases were destroyed over the past week," she said.

But Ms Humeniuk refused to give any further details.

Ukrainian military also claimed on Monday to have struck multiple targets in the region, including a factory in Beryslav and a Russian army post by the North Crimean Canal.

According to Western military sources, Kyiv's strikes on the river crossings are part of a targeted effort to isolate Russian troops on the right (western) bank of the river with the ultimate goal of recapturing the entire Kherson region.
Moscow relied on the bridges to resupply their troops stationed west of the Dnipro river, who are now at risk of becoming isolated from the rest of Russia's occupying forces.

Ukraine’s much-heralded “counter-offensive” in Kherson has “failed miserably,” the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday, listing the losses suffered by Kiev at the end of the day. Ukrainian forces attempted to attack in three directions on orders of President Vladimir Zelensky but made no gains, Moscow said.

Neither side tells the truth, it's all one big game.

No maybe not, the Russians have done this before. They allow Ukraine to re-occupy a town or city and then days later corral all the troops by surrounding them and then eliminate them. They have done it several times now.

And here’s Igor Girkin, Defense Minister of the Russian controlled “Donetsk People's Republic”.




If he’s saying it, this would definitely confirm that the Ukrainian counteroffensive is happening and it’s getting real there.
