Breakthrough for Kherson. Powerful offensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the south

The APU will rid the country of the invaders

On 4 October, the Ukrainian armed forces liberated at least eight settlements in the Kherson region and advanced 30 km into the front.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue a successful counter-offensive, now for the good news from the east, Ukraine has received news of the military’s successes in the south. What can the situation lead to?

Successful promotion

During an evening video message, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the Ukrainian armed forces are successfully advancing in the Kherson, Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

“The Ukrainian army is carrying out a fairly fast and powerful movement in the south of our country as part of the current defense operation. Dozens of settlements have already been cleared from the Russian pseudo-referendum this week alone, “he said.

Only in the Kherson region was he freed from the invaders:

– Lyubimovka;

– Kreschenovka;

– Golden ray;

– Belyaevka;

– Ukrainian;

– Bolshaya and Malaya Aleksandrovka;

– Davydov Brod.

“And this is far from a complete list. Our warriors don’t stop. And it’s only a matter of time before we drive the occupier out of our entire land, “she said.

What to expect next

There is a widespread belief among Russian war correspondents that the target of the Ukrainian offensive in the north of the Kherson region is the city of Berislav, on the banks of the Dnieper. This small town is located only 10 kilometers from Nova Kakhovka, but is almost 50 kilometers from Dudchan, which the Ukrainian army has already taken.

If this plan is successful in the first place, it will greatly complicate the position of the Russian troops in Kherson. If Davydov Brod’s offensive is successful, the Ukrainian armed forces will cut the Kherson group of the Russian Federation in two.

However, in addition to the operational-tactical objectives, the Ukrainian Armed Forces may also have strategic objectives. The fact is that the Northern Crimean Canal originates in Novaya Kakhovka. One of the results of the rapid advance of the Russian army in February 2022 was the capture of Novaya Kakhovka and the release of water in the Crimea.

This canal was closed after the annexation of the peninsula in 2014 and the release of water was a major economic and political event for Russia. If Ukraine can block it again, this will be another important and significant event during the war.

Russia’s response

CIA chief Bill Burns believes Russian dictator Vladimir Putin could be “quite dangerous and reckless” due to Russia’s growing problems in Ukraine and around the world, reports CNN.

According to the CIA chief, Putin may be concerned not only with what is happening on the battlefield in Ukraine, but also with what is happening in Russia and around the world. He recalled that, despite the Chinese promise of “boundless friendship” in February, Beijing refused to offer the military support asked by Putin and “curbed his enthusiasm for the Russian war”.
