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positions in Kislevka, a village just 15 kilometers northwest of Kherson, show that most of the Russian forces have withdrawn.

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.

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.
