“As it stands, (Russian) orcs and their sympathizers in Kherson could be cut off from supply routes and means of retreat,” Sobolevskyi said, adding that “the Ukrainians are coming.”

A Russian staging area near Antonivsky Bridge in Kherson Oblast was hit by a long-range Ukrainian strike on July 19. According to Kherson regional official Serhiy Khlan, the attack left Russian forces in the area disoriented.


  1. Another strike or two on the same spot would destroy that part of the bridge. I think that Ukraine forces will do so when the time is ripe. Doing so now is too soon. It would give the cockroaches time to repair it again. It’s better to do so when UA forces are advancing.
