That's the claim of Vitaliy Kim, governor of Mykolaiv.


Russia's offensive in southern Ukraine has stalled, the governor of Mykolaiv has told Euronews.

Vitaliy Kim made the claim to Euronews' Anelise Borges in the centre of the strategic city, which sits around 60 kilometres from Russian-occupied Kherson.

Ukrainian troops are currently trying to retake the city, whose pro-Moscow leaders have called to be annexed by Vladimir Putin.

Kim told Euronews the claim changes nothing in terms of Ukraine's strategy and that they will continue to fight for the city.

"The message is simple: keep on fighting," he said. 

"The war is 24 hours per day and they are fighting. They can stand. We have no choice so they will stand. That's it."
