Earlier, a British military expert, retired British Army Colonel Glen Grant, commenting on the actions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the left bank of the Kherson region, noted that Ukrainian units are slowly moving forward, and that their movement will continue, since Russia now does not have the opportunity to push them back. In his opinion, the turning point should occur in the Zaporozhye or Kherson region. And it’s only a matter of time.
