On the air of Radio NV on July 25, military expert Petro Chernyk said that Ukraine has decent strategic preconditions for liberating Kherson Oblast.

"There are very good strategic preconditions for the liberation of the right bank of Kherson Oblast,” he stated.

“However, I would appeal to everyone and, first of all, to the media space, using this opportunity now, not to discuss this topic too much in terms of specifics, practice, and, most importantly, naming some major operational strikes."

He explained that Russia closely monitors the Ukrainian information space and can use "every bit of information" against Ukraine.

"I stress, positive strategic conditions have been created, we believe in our General Staff, we keep our fingers crossed for our soldiers and I am sure that in the near future we will have some good news,” said the military analyst.

“At the same time, we do not have our heads in the sky, we have explained why our enemy will fight to the death and we should be prepared exclusively for a long-term struggle.”

Acting Head of the Kherson Oblast Military Administration, Dmytro Butriy, said at a briefing on July 14 that although the majority of Kherson Oblast is still occupied, Ukraine already managed to liberate 44 settlements in the region.

Sergey Khlan, a deputy of the Kherson Oblast Council, also announced that the occupying authorities had left the building of the Kherson Oblast State Administration and dispersed throughout the city.

Military expert and officer of the Israeli Defense Forces Yigal Levin asserted in an interview with Radio NV on July 25 that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is already underway.

The head of the joint coordination press center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, Nataliya Humenyuk, reported that the Ukrainian military has the logistical routes of the Russian troops in Kherson Oblast in the cross hairs.
