“We managed to strike and destroy cannons, tanks, vehicles, armored vehicles and enemy air defense systems,” the command spokeswoman Natalija Humeňuková was quoted as saying by CNN. “In other words, our work to clear the front line on the east bank is quite substantial, but we are still operating in anti-artillery mode,” she said.
Humeňuková added that the continuation of the action is expected in the next few days, which, according to her, facilitates the evacuation of civilians from the river bank: “They (the Russians) are clearing the territory of the local population, which makes our job much easier, because they are trying to evacuate the locals where they are moving their units.’
It follows from her words that they can fire on Russian troops without endangering local residents.
At the end of last week, Russia already denied that Ukrainian forces had penetrated the left bank of the Dnieper.
However, the area near the village of Olešky is difficult to control because there are extensive swamps between the arms of the wide river, where it is difficult to build trenches and where it is difficult for technology to operate.
