Quote: "The village of Kyselivka was liberated yesterday [13 September], which is situated in the immediate vicinity of the [city of Kherson]. The only village that, as of today, stands between the Ukrainian army and the city of Kherson is the infamous Chornobaivka. But everyone in Ukraine knows that Chornobaivka is where the occupiers meet their death."
Details: Samoilenko also said that the explosions that could be heard on the Karantinnyi Island in Kherson accompanied the "precise strike" of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the area where Russian occupying forces were stationed and concentrated.
In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine struck concentrations of Russian occupying forces in Nova Kakhovka, Hola Prystan and several other settlements. Samoilenko said that since each of those strikes was accompanied by detonation [of Russian ammunition], Russian forces are losing capability not just to put up resistance [to the advancing Ukrainian forces], but to replenish their losses or execute any manoeuvres.
Samoilenko stressed that the overwhelming mood among the residents of Kherson Oblast is one of "expectation", while the Russian occupiers "are having panic attacks".
