Russia has pulled back troops in Kherson to minimize losses. Now Ukraine will retake territory on one side of the Dnieper River and Russian troops will command the other.
Russia has been evacuating this area for weeks as Ukrainian attacks have persisted. They worry that strikes on the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam located near Kherson pose a serious risk to both the military and civilians.
A Russian general says that Ukrainian losses are over 12,000 soldiers in October alone and Russian losses are “seven to eight times lower.”
The river could provide an opportunity for peace talks if Ukrainian leaders would agree to it. Peace talks now!
