The Russian military acknowledges that Kyiv’s forces have broken through Moscow’s defenses in the Kherson region.

Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov says in his daily briefing that “with numerically superior tank units in the direction of Zolota Balka and Oleksandrivka, the enemy managed to forge deep into our defenses.”

Konashenkov adds that “Russian troops have occupied a pre-prepared defensive line and continue to inflict massive fire damage” on Kyiv’s forces.
