Ukrainian troops cut the Oleshki-Nova Kakhovka road (53 km northeast of the city of Kherson) in at least two areas.
As of November 9, Ukrainian troops established continuous control over positions from the Antonivsky railway bridge north of Poima to the Antonivsky bridge north of Oleshok (7 km south of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro River).
On November 9, Russian military bloggers said that Ukrainian forces had established control over new positions in Krynyk (30 km northeast of Kherson and 2 km from the Dnipro River) and were storming Russian positions south and southwest of the settlement.
A Russian military blogger claimed that there is information that Ukrainian forces have advanced to the forest areas south of Krynyk.
Other military bloggers claimed that Ukrainian forces also attacked near Poima (12 km east of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro), Pishchanivka (13 km east of Kherson and 3 km from the Dnipro) and Pidstepny (17 km east of Kherson and 4 km from the Dnipro) and are trying to consolidate their positions between the Podsteppe and Cossack Camps (23 km northeast of Kherson and 2 km from the Dnipro).
ISW analysts believe that the Russian military command will likely find it difficult to redeploy combat-capable reinforcements to respond to Ukrainian operations in the Kherson region while simultaneously conducting defensive operations in the Zaporizhia region and supporting other offensive operations in eastern Ukraine.
They also noted that currently inactive Russian forces in the Kherson direction will not be sufficient to respond to Ukrainian operations on the eastern bank of the Dnieper.
