Volodymyr Saldo, in charge of the part of the Ukrainian region of Kherson under Russia’s control, confirmed on Saturday that Russian forces had “lined up” in the past hours the Ukrainian presence that managed to cross the regional front and reach the eastern shore of the Dnieper River.

During the last week of heavy fighting.

Now, Saldo announced on his Telegram account that “Russian Armed Forces have completed the liquidation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the left bank of the Dnieper River, near the Antonovsky Bridge.”

According to Saldo, soldiers from the Russian Special Forces “carried out a surprise attack last night from behind,” with the participation of forces from the Tormenta detachment, marines, coastal defense, reserve brigades, and automatic machine gunners.

The so-called “governor” of the Russian Kherson administration confirmed, however, the attempts of the Ukrainian armed forces to cross the Dnieper near the Antonovsky Bridge since the beginning of this week. Over the past few days, Ukrainian forces have hid “under preserved parts of the infrastructure, as well as in the nearest houses”.

The bridge was destroyed, British military intelligence also estimates.
