The activity of Russian sabotage and reconnaissance groups has increased near Kherson, especially between the islands near the city, Yevhen Yerin, head of the Joint Press Center of the Tauride Defense Forces, said on Ukrainian national television on Jan. 31.

"But the Defense Forces are closely monitoring the situation," Yerin said.

“Over the past 24 hours, at least five light motorized boats with enemy sabotage groups were destroyed.”

At the same time, according to him, there have been no attempts of an offensive by the Russian military on the Kherson section of the front.
