Russia is being prepared for the loss of Kherson

The video is from a goofball show that airs nightly on Russian TV. You can read the subtitles
The only questions are will rashist soldiers make a last stand and will Ukraine let them leave or they blow the barge bridge the orcs installed yesterday. Good piece in the Daily Kos I will add in a minute.



NY Times: Russian Officials hint that their hold on Kherson is shaky!

Russian officials hint that their hold on Kherson is shaky.

The commander of the Russian invasion said on Tuesday that his army may face “hard decisions” about its tenuous hold over the strategically important region of Kherson, just minutes after a top Moscow-appointed official there announced an evacuation of civilians from four occupied districts.

Gen. Sergei Surovikin, the top Russian commander in Ukraine, acknowledged in a rare interview that the situation in the Kherson region has been “difficult” after the Ukrainian army damaged two key connections to other Russian occupied territory. For weeks, Ukrainian forces have been advancing slowly toward the regional capital, the city of Kherson, in a counteroffensive aimed at driving the Russians back across the Dnipro River.

In a video statement, Vladimir Saldo, the head of the regional occupation administration, said that residents would be evacuated from four districts on the west side of the Dnipro River. Mr. Saldo — who was appointed governor of the Kherson region by the Kremlin shortly after Russia formally annexed the territory at the end of September — cited the risk of shelling and the need for Russia to build defensive lines to repel an expected Ukrainian attack.

General Surovikin, in his first public remarks since he was appointed as head of the Russian military force in Ukraine on Oct. 8, said that the Russian Army would assist the evacuation and stressed the challenging conditions his forces face — with a tacit acknowledgment that a retreat from the city of Kherson might be necessary.



More and more it sounds like the Orcs will flee the right bank of the Dneiper. A barge bridge was just completed across the Dneiper at Kherson. Ukraine hasn't destroyed it yet. The Orcs are also saying the dam at Nova Kharkova (which has a bridge) could collapse. Time to get out of Dodge.
