GENICHESK, January 20. /TASS/. The Ukrainian Armed Forces occasionally try to land troops on the Kinburn Spit in the Nikolayev Region, the Kherson Region’s Acting Governor Vladimir Saldo told TASS on Friday.
"From time to time, the enemy has tried to land small forces on the Kinburn Spit, deploying them from the Ochakov area on speedboats. Our troops repelled all these attempts and landing forces were either fully eliminated or retreated after losing many of their troops and watercraft," he pointed out.
Saldo said earlier that the Kinburn Spit, located on the left bank of the Dnieper River, was fully controlled by the Russian Armed Forces. A Russian security source, in turn, explained that the liberation of the area had opened the water way to the city of Ochakov.
