Ukraine is attempting to recapture a strategically important city. Cruise missiles hit the headquarters of the Ukrainian Air Force.
Ukrainian forces are struggling to recapture the important southern city of Kherson from the Russians, according to a US Department of Defense official . The Russian military no longer has such tight control over the city as before, which is why Cherson is now classified as a "contested area" again.
Kherson, at the start of the Dnipro estuary, is a strategically important port city, the official said. Should the Ukrainians manage to recapture the city, it would complicate the Russian attack on the nearby embattled city of Mykolaiv. It would also make a possible ground offensive in the direction of the port city of Odessa significantly more difficult.
The Ukrainian military still believes a large-scale attack by Russian troops on the capital Kiev is possible. To this end, the enemy is continuing to pull together strong forces, said Ukraine 's army chief of staff Olexander Grusewitsch. In addition, according to the findings of the reconnaissance in the Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, special units are being prepared for this mission. This information could not be independently verified. Recently, Ukrainian troops had managed to recapture several positions and towns in the Kyiv area.
