After the rapid advance of Ukrainian forces in the south of the country, more Russian targets have come within the reach of Ukraine’s artillery, CNN reported, on Oct. 14, citing a high-ranking representative of the Pentagon.
According to the official, Ukrainian forces are continuing to advance on Russian forces in the north of Kherson Oblast.
“We have seen gains in the north (of Kherson Oblast) now, really the line of advance for the Ukrainians, just north of the village of Mylove, and then extending essentially to the north and west with a number of small towns and villages that the Ukrainians have been able to clear of the Russians,” the official stated.
The United States is also seeing some "gradual progress" in the central part of the oblast. The official clarified that this is not about "great progress, but partial."
“We are talking about kilometers,” the official clarified.
Earlier, the head of Kherson regional military administration, Yaroslav Yanushevich, stated that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the Armed Forces of Ukraine had liberated 75 settlements in Kherson Oblast.
The head of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the South Operational Command, Nataliya Gumenyuk, reported on Oct. 7 that the area of the liberated territories in Kherson Oblast had increased to 500 square kilometers.
