On Thursday, Ukraine announced that its forces had struck a Russian training ground on the Russia-occupied bank of the Dnipro River in the southern Kherson region, killing or wounding dozens of troops. Military spokeswoman Natalia Gumeniuk reported on television that the attack occurred on Wednesday, targeting a range where Russian storm troops were training. Gumeniuk, the spokesperson for Ukraine’s Operational Command South, stated, “The work was carried out quite effectively: at least 60 invaders will not return to combat positions.”

Later, she informed the news that three strikes targeted a training ground near the village of Podo-Kalynivka, resulting in around 60 Russian troops being “killed or seriously wounded.” Aerial video footage showing explosions and soldiers lying on the ground was posted on the Telegram channel of Southern defense forces.

The attack followed Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu’s statement on Tuesday, claiming that Moscow forces had reclaimed a Ukrainian bridgehead around the village of Krynky on the Moscow-occupied bank of the Dnipro River.

The Ukrainian army refuted the claim. Gumeniuk stated that the training ground struck on Wednesday was being used by soldiers deployed to attack the bridgehead. One of the largest Russian Telegram blogs reporting on the war, Rybar, stated on Thursday that there were three strikes on a training ground in a national park area of dunes called Oleshkivski Pisky, located approximately 15 kilometers (nine miles) from Krynky.

Fighting was reported to be ongoing in Krynky, where small numbers of Ukrainian troops remain, with Ukraine sending artillery and drones from the opposite bank of the river under its control. Ukraine reportedly executed a similar strike on a training ground near the Russian-controlled eastern town of Volnovakha in the Donetsk region on Tuesday, resulting in numerous casualties. The BBC Russian Service reported that troops from Russia’s 36th Motorized Rifle Brigade, based in Siberia, were lined up on the training ground waiting for a commander to arrive, and at least 60 may have been killed. Rybar claimed that the attack was carried out using US-made HIMARS rocket systems.

The governor of the region where the brigade was from dismissed the information as “spurious” but promised help to the soldiers’ families. Ukrainian authorities have not commented. Russian war bloggers criticized the military leadership, asserting that such gatherings of large numbers of troops on open ground made easy targets.
