Commander of the Joint Group of Russian Forces Sergey Surovikin said that Herson city and adjacent settlements cannot fully decline and function. RIA Novosti writes about this.
Surovin stressed that people’s lives are in constant danger. He clarified that Russian air defense systems shoot down up to 80-90% of enemy missiles in the Kherson direction, but 20% of them still reach their targets.
In his opinion, it is advisable to organize defense along the barrier line of the Dnieper River, along its left bank.
Previously it was reported that Sergei Shoigu inspected the command post of the joint group of Russian troops in the zone of the special military operation. At the command post, he heard Surovikin’s report on the operational situation.
