For two days now, the city of Kherson has been subjected to massive shelling by all types of artillery systems, from barrel artillery of various calibers to multiple launch rocket systems of Soviet and Western production. The AFU units are deployed in the immediate vicinity of the city limits.
The city of Kherson is almost completely located on the right bank of the Dnieper River. That’s why earlier the Russian command declared the evacuation of residents of the city deep into Russian territory. The commander of the Russian Special Operation in Ukraine, Russian General Surovikin, also claimed that the city could be abandoned by Russian troops in case of military necessity and to save the lives of Russian soldiers.
Today, the AFU units are preparing to launch an assault on the city. Kiev is pulling up significant reserves in the region.
Apparently, the large-scale offensive operation should be expected next week.
