The Russian invaders are trying to improve their tactical position on the Pivdennyi Buh and Tavriya axes in southern Ukraine, said the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in a Facebook update posted on May 12.
On the Mykolayiv and Kryvyi Rih axes, the enemy continues to shell Ukrainian positions, and are conducting aerial reconnaissance with the use of drones.
On the Mykolayiv axis, near the city of Nova Kakhovka, the invaders are preparing engineering divisions for the construction of pontoon-bridge crossings across the Pivdennyi Buh River.
On the Tavriya axis, Russian troops have replenished their stocks and are engaged in demonstrative actions with the aim of restraining Ukrainian movements.
On the Zaporizhzhya axis, invaders have fired at Ukrainian troops with heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems.
