Ukrainian Grouping Finally Destroyed In Krynki, Kherson Region - Report

Illustrative Image

In February 2024, the former Defense Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Shoigu reported to the President that the Russian military destroyed Ukrainian stronghold on the eastern bank of the Dnieper River in the Kherson region and took control of the village of Krynki. According to the Russian military official, Russian forces established their observation posts in the settlement. However, it turned out the official claims were premature.

The battles in Krynki began last year after Ukrainian counteroffensive in the Zaporozhie region failed. The Ukrainian military managed to gain a foothold in the area of the village but failed to expand the zone of their control and develop any advance in the region. As a result, the Ukrainian grouping in Krinky and reinforcement that attempted to cross the Dnieper River were pounded by Russian shelling and drone, missile strikes.

Russian President Vladimir Putin once commented on the battles in the area, confirming that the Russian army was not in a hurry to destroy the Ukrainian garrison in Krinky. Russian forces were aimed to inflict maximum damage to the enemy. Thus, the Russian military achieved the goal of the battle for Krinky. The Armed Forces of Ukraine suffered heavy losses in manpower on the Russian eastern bank.

Destruction of Ukrainian boats in the Kherson region:




Indeed in February 2024, Russian forces significantly reduced the zone of Ukrainian control in Krinky, but reports from the battlefield denied the full control of the village. The intensity of fighting decreased there.

Today, on May 20, various military resources reported that Ukrainian forces were finally repelled from their stronghold in Krinky on the Russian eastern bank. The 76th Airborne Division of the Russian Armed Forces completely destroyed the remnants of the AFU in Krynki and the village finally returned to the control of Russian troops. The Ukrainian military command could no longer rotate forces and sent the necessary supplies and reinforcement across the Dnieper.

At the same time, some Russian military sources from the battlefield confirm new Russian success in the area but deny the full control of the ruins. Some Ukrainian servicemen remain in the basements in the village and launch rare strikes. The Ukrainian grouping on the western bank of the Dnieper continue shelling and drone strikes across the river, complicating Russian operations.

The village was almost ruined as a result of prolonged battles. The fighting is reportedly ongoing on the islands nearby.

No matter did the Russian military take the full control of Krinky or not, the presence of some Ukrainian forces in the ruins of the village can no longer change the situation in the region. The ongoing battles on the eastern bank only distract the Ukrainian military that is suffering losses in all directions.
