The recent strike by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Russian echelon with ammunition in the Kherson region will significantly complicate the logistics for the Russian army on the southern front.
It is reported in Twitter The British Ministry of Defense, citing intelligence data, reports Ukrinform.
“As a result of the Ukrainian strike on a Russian ammunition train in the Kherson region in southern Ukraine, it is highly unlikely that the rail link between Kherson and Crimea remains operational. Russian forces are likely to repair the railway track within a few days, however it will remain vulnerable to Russian forces and their logistics route from Crimea to Kherson.
The British Ministry of Defense also notes that the ferry across the Dnieper, which the Russian invaders built after the damage to the Antonovsky bridge near Kherson, will be used mainly to move troops and logistics.
“We are likely to see an increase in the number of civilians trying to leave Kherson and its environs as the fighting continues and the food situation worsens. This will create pressure on transport hubs and routes, which will presumably lead to the introduction of traffic control measures,” the agency added.
As Ukrinform reported, on the night of July 30, the Ukrainian military hit the train of the Russian invaders, which arrived at the Brilovka station in the Kherson region. The echelon consisted of more than 40 wagons with manpower, equipment and ammunition.
