Rashists who are now in Kherson and areas can act according to one of two scenarios: they will start the defense or try to throw back the Armed Forces.
“There are two possible scenarios. The first is to simply go straight to the defensive. The second is to try to push the Armed Forces of Ukraine deeper into the Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv regions and completely capture the entire administrative border of the Kherson region, & ndash; Rostislav Smirnov, adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs, said during a broadcast on Channel 24.
He added that the invaders had already begun to carry out reconnaissance in force and with the help of drones and noted that if the Russians lose the territories that they managed to occupy in the south , for them it will be a big blow.
Some military experts admit that the Russian troops will leave Kherson on their own and retreat. However, the NYT writes that Ukraine will not be able to return the city right now. The fact is that, despite the well-aimed strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the enemy's logistics chains, the Russian army still has a significant advantage.
Meanwhile, deputy of the Kherson Regional Council Sergey Khlan believes that the period until the end of August will be decisive for the regional center .
