Russia’s occupation forces will no longer be able to advance in southern Ukraine, said head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces Natalia Humeniuk on national television on March 14.
"They will not be able to advance in the south," she said.
“Firstly, even the geography of our country provides them with additional obstacles — the Dnipro River and the Dnipro Estuary.”
She added that Ukraine’s Defense Forces are ready should the situation change.
Another reason is the guerrilla movement in the occupied settlements, which help fight the occupation troops.
According to Humeniuk, the Russian units have already tried, and failed, to move towards the river islands.
She added that the concentration of the occupation forces on the Zaporizhzhya section of the front indicates that they are instead preparing for defense.
"However, our Defense Forces, on the other hand, are absolutely ready for any developments," stressed Humeniuk.
Earlier, the National Resistance Center reported that Russian invasion forces were trying to imitate a significant build-up of forces in Zaporizhzhya Oblast.
