The report from the American Institute of War Studies indicates that the actions of defenders on the left bank of the Kherson region are "greater than before." Analysts suggest that this "raises the concerns" of the Russians.

The Institute for War Studies have published their daily report on the situation on the Ukrainian front. American experts point out in it that the actions of the defenders on the left bank of the Kherson region are "greater than before".

Geolocation material shows that despite Russian counterattacks, Ukrainian forces maintain their positions mainly along the coast of the Dnieper and near the railway bridge in Antonivka.

ISW reserves the right to say that "it doesn't see on the left bank any Ukrainian activity sufficient for the development of a mechanized troops maneuver. However, it notes that Russian sources speak of a higher than before (one-time offensive raids) Ukrainian activity".

ISW: Russians "full of fears"

"Russian sources clearly show concerns about Ukrainian actions on the eastern bank in the Kherson region and see them as part of a potential larger operation," writes ISW.

The Ukrainian General Staff also confirmed military actions on the eastern bank - they announced that on Thursday, Russian planes struck Pishchane, which suggests that Ukrainian troops were located there.
