Para Zalujny, otro “problema” actual para su ejercito es “conservar la actual línea del fronte”que se extiende del sur al este, “y ya no perder terreno”, tras haber sacado a los rusos en septiembre de la region de Kharkiv (noreste) y de Kherson a inicios de noviembre (sur).

According to the head of the Ukrainian army, the Russians have bombarded the country’s energy infrastructure since October after a series of humiliating setbacks, because they “need time” to “reunite their human and military resources” with the objective of realizing a new offensive of magnitude in the next few years. months

Kherson, the great city of southern Ukraine recovered recently by Kiev, was bombarded last Thursday by the Russian forces, in an attack that caused two deaths and left it without electricity in full winter.

“The enemy attacked the center of the city, 100 meters from the regional administration” bombarded yesterday, said the deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential administration. Kyrylo Tymoshenkoen Telegram.
