Ukraine predicts 'heaviest of battles' as Kherson battle lines drawn
Ukraine is preparing for some of the worst fighting anticipated in Kherson, with other public incidents sullying Russia's diplomatic image beyond the war.

Russian forces are digging in for the "heaviest of battles" in the strategic southern region of Kherson, a senior Ukrainian official said, as the Kremlin prepares to defend the largest city under its control from Ukraine's counter-offensive.

Russian forces in the region have been driven back in recent weeks and risk being trapped against the west bank of the Dnipro river, where the provincial capital of Kherson has been in Russian hands since the early days of the invasion of Ukraine eight months ago.

Russian-installed authorities are evacuating residents to the east bank, but Oleksiy Arestovych, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said there was no sign that Russian forces were preparing to abandon the city.

They are removing the Russian and Russian sympathetic civilians out of the way of disaster alright, then Russia will drop something-- a dirty bomb by the way they've launched a campaign to spread that story and then blame it on the Ukraine-- explaining they warned the world in advance what the Ukrainians were up to all along.
