GENICHESKY (Kherson region), March 21 – RIA Novosti. A source familiar with the situation told RIA Novosti that Russian artillery attacked the positions of Ukrainian troops near Kherson last night.
“At night, a 2S3 Akatsiya howitzer with ammunition was destroyed in the Kamyshany residential area, casualties: five soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine died,” he said.

In early November, the Russian command decided to transfer troops from the right bank of the Dnieper in the Kherson region and defend along the left bank. Civil authorities organized the evacuation of civilians on the right bank, which is in danger due to the constant risk of shelling and flooding in case of an attack on the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. Now Russian troops control 75 percent of the territory of the Kherson region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine hold the right bank, including the regional center – the city of Kherson.
