Kherson trenches resemble those of the 'First World War': Report
As winter approaches, Russian forces are "digging in" in Kherson using trench systems similar to those used during the First World War.
According to a former British army general, as winter approaches, Russian forces are "digging in" in Kherson using trench systems similar to those used during the First World War. According to the former army commander who told Sky News, as winter approaches, Russia is "digging in," which presents difficulties for Kyiv's forces in Kherson.
According to former Chief of the General Staff Lord Dannatt, "The Russians are very much digging in because they realize they are on the back foot and they cannot afford any further reverses." This is especially true now that winter has gripped Ukraine.
While Ukrainian forces were successful in retaking the southern city of Kherson a few weeks ago, they will now "battle" to cross the Dnipro River to the east in order to assault Russia, where Moscow is allegedly constructing "trenches akin to those used in the First World War," according to him.
Additionally, he emphasized how crucial it was for Ukrainian forces to drive Russia out of Kherson city because they were still "within Russian artillery range."
According to the former army chief, the West "certainly needs to continue assisting Ukraine," and allies will need to decide how much more military hardware they are ready to provide.
A major setback for Russia, which had taken control of the city early in the conflict, came when it was ordered to remove Russian forces from Kherson city in early November when it was determined that supplies could no longer be maintained.
