The CAA of the Kherson region announced the repulsion of the attack of the AFU landing from the Black Sea He also denied the landing near the resort village of Zhelezny Port
The military-civilian administration of the Kherson region did not confirm the data on the landing of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) in the Mykolaiv region.
On the air of the Soloviev Live program; Deputy head of the CAA Kirill Stremousov spoke about the attempt of the landing of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to occupy the Kinburn Spit in the Black Sea (Nikolaev region), in order to then penetrate into the Kherson region from there.
“The attack was stopped,” — Stremousov said, explaining that the paratroopers were destroyed.
Kinburn Spit— it is a sandy spit in the northwestern part of the Kinburn Peninsula between the Dnieper-Bug Estuary and the Black Sea.
The distance between Ochakovo, which is controlled by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and the Kinburn Spit by sea about 5km.
An episode of the Russian-Turkish war of 1787-1791 is connected with the Kinburn Spit, when Russian troops under the command of General Alexander Suvorov defeated a Turkish landing force on the spit, which was trying to capture the fortifications of the Kinburn fortress.
In general, according to him, the situation calm in the region, although “on the horizon” explosions are heard, which, according to him, are associated with the work of the artillery of the Russian troops, working “on the steppe” in order to prevent the approach of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Kherson, he added.
In a conversation with the agency «RIA Novosti» Stremousov specified that about 120 paratroopers were killed. “They were immediately noticed and destroyed. About 120 Ukrainian soldiers were killed there. It was a senseless action, they were immediately noticed, — Stremousov told the agency. “Any approaches to the Kinburn Spit are completely controlled by us, and it is unrealistic to approach unnoticed,” — he added.
Stremousov also did not confirm that Ukrainian paratroopers tried to land in the south of the Kherson region, near the resort village of Zhelezny Port.
“I am now in the Zhelezny Port area. We do not confirm yet,— Stremousov told the TASS news agency.
The Kherson region came under the control of Russian troops in mid-March, and soon a military-civilian administration appeared in the region.
At the end of August, the agency Reuters, citing the Southern Military Command of Ukraine, reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched a counteroffensive in the south of the country, including in the Kherson region. The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed such an attempt, but called it unsuccessful.
