Russia continues to tighten its grip on Kherson Oblast in southern Ukraine, Ukraine’s General Staff said in a Facebook message on May 27.

Moscow has begun to use reserves to bolster its strike group near the city of Kherson, and its troops in the region are digging in.

Air reconnaissance and artillery fire on Ukrainian positions in the area has intensified, the General Staff reported.

Meanwhile, the Russian navy in the Black Sea and Sea of Azov continue to impede maritime trade, leading to a possible global food crisis.
