Ukrainian troops made another attempt to counterattack on the Kherson region, but failed, RIA Novosti reported. Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the administration of the Kherson region.
“The other day, the Ukrainian Nazis made another failed attempt to attack the Kherson region. Their attempt to attack failed. Firstly, the Kherson region— this is the steppe, and any movement of the Ukrainian army ends in unsuccessful attacks. Secondly, all their attempts only lead to heavy losses in the ranks of the Ukrainian army,»,— said “RIA Novosti” Stremousov.
According to him, the Ukrainian side is deliberately escalating the situation in relation to the Kherson region in order to beg more money from the West. “Ukrnazis are only interested in how to fill their pockets more. And the fact that the Kherson region will again return under the control of Ukraine, that there will be a counteroffensive,— it's all fantasy. The nationalists do not have such forces and a regular professional army that could somehow counteract the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian troops have not had a single successful breakthrough or counteroffensive since the beginning of the special operation, — emphasized the deputy head of administration.
From the beginning of the special operation in Ukraine, the Russian military took control of the Kherson region and part of the Zaporozhye region. Pro-Russian military-civilian administrations have appeared in the regions, Russian communications are working, and rubles circulate on a par with the hryvnia.
The new authorities of the regions have repeatedly stated that they intend to hold referendums on the region's entry into Russia. At the same time, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said in early July that the head of state had given instructions to recapture the south of Ukraine: a plan for this, according to him, was already being developed, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine intended to assemble “million strong combat forces” equipped with Western weapons.
