Ukraine forces recapture 400 square kilometers in southern Kherson region

Ukrainian forces have retaken 400 square kilometers (155 square miles) of territory in the southern Kherson region so far this month, as they continue to push Russian troops back in the south and east, Ukraine’s southern military command says.

Natalia Humeniuk, spokesperson for the Ukrainian military’s Operational Command South, says in a briefing that the situation along the southern front was rapidly changing and remained complicated.

Ukraine has recaptured 29 settlements in the oblast since Oct. 1, Oleksii Hromov, deputy chief of the Main Operational Department of the Ukrainian army’s General Staff, told a separate briefing.
