“Russia said Wednesday for the first time that some Ukrainian troops had established positions on the Moscow-held side of the Dnipro river, the vast waterway that splits the front line in southern Ukraine. … ‘Small groups’ of Ukrainian soldiers were stretched along the eastern bank of the Dnipro river, and had been ‘blocked’ in the tiny village of Krynky, the Moscow-installed [quisling in] Ukraine’s Kherson region, Vladimir Saldo, said in a post on Telegram. But he insisted they were facing a ‘fiery hell’ from Russian artillery, rockets and drones, and were suffering heavy losses. Russian and Ukrainian forces have been entrenched on opposite sides of the Dnipro river since Moscow withdrew from the western part of Kherson region last November.” (11/16/23)
