After the attack by Ukrainian forces on a Russian train with ammunition in Kherson Oblast, it is unlikely that the railway connection with Crimea is currently operational, the UK Ministry of Defense said in its latest Ukraine update on Twitter on Aug 3.

Although the Russians will most likely repair the railway in a few days, it will continue to be a vulnerable point for Russian forces and their supply chains from Crimea to Kherson, the ministry said.

In addition, Russia set up a ferry crossing for civilian use after the Antonivskyi Bridge was severely damaged, but it will almost certainly be used by the Russian military to transfer forces and supplies.

The UK Ministry of Defense predicted that even more citizens in occupied Kherson and the surrounding area will try to leave the region in the near future because of the threat of hostilities and an even more aggravated food situation.

In this regard, it is possible that the occupying authorities will increase loads on transport hubs and take additional measures to control traffic.
