Ukraine wants to reach the other shore through the Kinburn Peninsula

Ukrainian forces have launched an attack on the strategically important Kinburn Peninsula. This is considered a risky undertaking. Can they break through the Russian defenses on the east bank of the Dnieper?

Russian troops have withdrawn from the city of Cherson on the eastern bank of the Dnieper.

Russian troops established their defense lines after withdrawing from the city of Kherson on the east bank of the Dnieper. The front now runs along the river. Oblast Kherson is thus divided into a Ukrainian-controlled area in the northwest and a Russian-occupied part in the southeast.

Russia is doing everything possible to keep the territory: for President Vladimir Putin (70) what is ultimately at stake is access to the annexed Crimean peninsula. Therefore, the Ukrainian army wants to cross the Dnieper and continue to push back the enemy troops. However, this is a very risky undertaking. Because there’s pretty much only the waterway on the Kinburn Peninsula.
