She stated that Ukrainian troops continue to strengthen on the left bank of the Dnieper.

“Provisionally, the distance ranges from three to eight kilometers, depending on the geography and landscape features along the entire left bank.

Now their mortars cannot hit the right bank, so we consider this as a certain achievement,” Humenuk said.

According to her, the insurgents continue to use artillery en masse despite losing four to ten artillery systems every day.

Russia still has sufficient reserves of artillery and manpower, the press representative of the Ukrainian operational command “South” admitted.

She also said that Russia has deployed several tens of thousands of soldiers on the left bank of the Dnieper.

“There are huge forces there, so we have a lot to do,” Humenuk said. She added that the Ukrainian forces do not currently observe the formation of attack groups of Russian troops on the left bank of the Dnieper.

On the other hand, the Ukrainian Air Force announced on Sunday that the Ukrainian air defense shot down 15 of the 20 “Shahed” attack drones launched by Russia last night.

An attack by Russian attack drones caused damage to an infrastructure facility in the Kyiv region, no people were injured, the Kyiv Region Military Administration announced.
