Ukraine wants to get to the other shore through the Kinburn Peninsula

Ukrainian forces launched an attack on the strategically important Kinburn Peninsula. This is considered a risky business. Will they manage to break through the Russian defenses on the east bank of the Dnieper?

Russian troops withdrew from the city of Kherson to the eastern bank of the Dnieper.

Russian troops set up their defensive lines after withdrawing from the city of Kherson on the east bank of the Dnieper. The line now runs along the river. The Kherson region is thus divided into the Ukrainian-controlled area in the northwest and the Russian-occupied part in the southeast.

Russia is doing everything it can to keep this territory – for President Vladimir Putin (70), nothing less is at stake in the end than access to the annexed Crimean peninsula. The Ukrainian army therefore wants to cross the Dnieper and push back the enemy troops. However, this is a high-risk enterprise. Because there is practically only a waterway across the Kinburn Peninsula.
