Newsweek: Ukraine Close to Controlling Crimea as Russia's Southern Front Collapses

reakthroughs by Kyiv’s forces against Russian troops in the south of Ukraine, near a key point that supplies water for Crimea, have put at risk Moscow’s control of the peninsula it annexed in 2014.

The military blog, Military tweeted this week that Ukrainian forces were continuing to push south on a heading to Nova Kakhovka after recapturing several settlements as they advanced toward the city of Kherson.

This was retweeted by New Voice of Ukraine journalist Euan McDonald, who wrote that Nova Kakhovka was “an important objective as it’s at the head of the canal that supplies Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea with lots of its water.”
