The US Institute for the Study of War said on Tuesday that Ukrainian forces continue to achieve significant success in the counter-offensive in the Kherson region of southern Ukraine. In addition, according to analysts, Russia is not able to secure a new front line in the north-east of Ukraine, which was created by the lightning advance of Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine’s success on the southern front has a significant impact on the morale and combat capabilities of Russian soldiers. Satellite images of Russian positions in Kislevka, a village just 15 kilometers northwest of Kherson, show that most of the Russian forces have withdrawn.

This, according to an analysis by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), corresponds to unverified reports that the pro-Russian forces left Kislevka and moved towards the Dnieper River.

Kyselivka is an important logistical point for Russian forces around Kherson, and is the last major Russian settlement along the highway from Kherson to Mykolaiv and the railway there.

Ukraine continues to advance in the northeast of the country in the Kharkiv region. ISW writes that Kyiv’s successes there probably do not have such a dramatic psychological effect on the Russian forces in the south withdrawing from their positions because of this.

It follows that the Ukrainian counter-offensive near Kherson is also making significant progress, although in recent days attention has been more focused on the Kharkiv region, where the rapid Ukrainian offensive in the past few days has significantly reduced the area of ​​​​the areas occupied by Russia.

“After the successes of Ukraine, the Russian forces are no longer able to consolidate the new front line in the east of the Kharkiv region, and they are actively fleeing the region or moving to other hubs,” according to analysts of events in northeastern Ukraine. .
