In the past few days, civilians have been repeatedly killed or injured by bombing in the area, some of which is still occupied by Russian forces. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening video address: “Russia these days is bombing Kherson, Bereslav and villages in the Kherson region with particular brutality.” “This is deliberate terrorism on the part of the occupiers. Condolences to everyone who lost loved ones!”
According to a military spokesman, Ukrainian forces repelled attacks launched by Russian forces on the Eastern Front on Thursday evening. “We continue to repel fierce enemy attacks near Klyshchevka and Andreyevka,” Ilya Yevlash told state television. In a post on the Telegram app, Zelensky briefly referred to “our progress in the Donetsk sector” in the east, but did not provide details. He said a counterattack would take time and rejected Western critics who said progress had been too slow and full of strategic mistakes.
