Russia annexed the peninsula in 2014, while it occupied the rest of southern Ukraine in an invasion launched in February this year.

Everything will be Ukrainian,” the adviser added.

Kyiv announced the counter-offensive at the beginning of last week without much detail. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi subsequently stated that no one responsible for Kiev’s military plans would reveal anything concrete, and advised Russian soldiers to flee the occupied territories.

“More than 30 soldiers and three enemy tanks were hit in the city of Kherson, and an anti-aircraft missile complex and six enemy trucks were destroyed in the area of ​​the Antoniv bridge and crossing,” the command of the Ukrainian forces said. The warring parties’ data cannot be independently verified during the conflict.
