Strategic Island in Kherson Region Now Under Ukrainian Control, Boosting Control Measures

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksandr Syrskyi reported on the situation on the front as of April 28:

In an attempt to seize the strategic initiative and break through the front line, Russian troops have concentrated their main efforts on several directions. Ukrainian forces managed to improve their tactical position in the areas of Synyuvka (Kupiansk direction) and Serebryanskyi Forest (Lyman direction), and have established control over the island of Nesteryaha, located in the Dnipro delta in the Biloozerskyi district of the Kherson Region.

The re-capture of the island of Nesteryaha by the Ukrainian Armed Forces will significantly improve the quality of control measures. This was reported by the head of the Center for Strategic Communications of the Southern Defense Forces Dmytro Pletentchuk on the air of Hromadske Radio.

“Locations that prevent the enemy from approaching our positions are important. Considering that the Russian forces usually use similar locations, this is therefore primarily important for the quality of counter-subversive measures. This location has been cleared of the possible presence of the Russian army,” Pletentchuk stated.

Previously, Commander Syrskyi reported that the situation on the front has intensified: “The enemy is actively attacking along the entire front line, achieving tactical successes in some directions. The situation is changing dynamically, with individual positions changing hands several times a day, which leads to an ambiguous understanding of the situation.”

Syrskyi notes in his report that heavy fighting has continued throughout the front line this week. At the same time, the defense forces have managed to improve their tactical position in some directions. According to the report, personnel are being trained in training centers, and defensive fortifications are also continuing to be built. Ukraine is in talks with partners to quickly obtain weapons, armaments, and military equipment.
