Russia prepared the ground for the withdrawal of its troops from Kherson .

Over the past couple of weeks, the Ukrainian army has made “impressive” successes in de-occupying territories, the Russians have been forced to take a defensive position in response. The enemy is currently “critically short of ammunition,” writes Politico , citing a Western official.

“We are confident in our previous warnings about the prospects for the withdrawal of the Russian military from their Kherson bridgehead. The planning was almost certainly developed in advance,” he said.

A Western official warned that any decision to retreat “is more about Russian long-term strategic decisions about where to defend best to be effective, maintain their own ammunition stocks, maintain their troop strength and prepare for winter.”

“I think, in their opinion, they decided that the city of Kherson is not worth fighting for, that this natural defensive barrier of the river is extremely valuable to them,” the official explained.

    The cockroaches can’t hold Kherson. Period. But, those lying sacks of shit will find other excuses to abandon the city.
