Russia’s defence ministry said that the country's forces have foiled several attempts by Ukrainian units to cross the Dnipro River in the southern Kherson region.


According to the ministry, Ukrainian "sabotage and reconnaissance" teams were stopped while trying to cross the river.

The Institute for the Study of War noted that Ukrainian forces are still maintaining a presence on the east bank. And geolocated footage confirms that Ukrainian forces advanced to positions north of Pidstepne, around 20 kilometres east of Kherson City.

Ukraine recaptured parts of the Kherson region late last year after months of Russian occupation. But Russian forces retreated only as far as the other side of the Dnipro River and have continued to shell the city from there.
