During the last two weeks, the armed forces of Ukraine liberated about 500 square kilometers of territory in the Kherson region. At the same time, the Ukrainian defenders managed to de-occupy five settlements.
This was stated by the spokesperson of the United Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine Nataliya Gumenyuk.
"We can already say today that our successes over the past two weeks are quite convincing. We have advanced in various sections from 4 to several tens of kilometers, we have freed areas of about 500 square kilometers, and we can announce that some settlements of the Kherson region have been freed and are under the Ukrainian flag," she said.
In particular, the Armed Forces of Ukraine de-occupied Visokopilya, Novovoznesensk, Biloghirka, Sukhy Stavok, and Myrolyubivka.
It will be recalled that Russian troops in the southern direction are trying to negotiate with the Armed Forces of Ukraine regarding the surrender of weapons.
In addition, last day, on the southern borders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they destroyed an ammunition depot in Kakhovka, an area where enemy weapons were concentrated, an electronic warfare station, manpower and equipment of the occupiers.
