MELITOPOL, November 23. /TASS/. Russian artillery units hit the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ firing positions near the city of Orekhov and the settlements of Dorozhnyanka and Temirovka in the Zaporozhye Region, Chairman of the We Stand With Russian movement Vladimir Rogov told TASS on Wednesday.
"Artillery duels are taking place along the line of contact in the Zaporozhye Region, our guys did a good job in Orekhov, Dorozhnyanka and Temirovka, the three areas where the enemy’s positions were hit at night," he specified.
Rogov said earlier that two Ukrainian armed forces’ brigades, as well as armored vehicles and numerous artillery pieces, were being redeployed to the Orekhov area. Rogov told TASS that the redeployment of up to 40,000 Ukrainian troops from the Kherson Region to the Zaporozhye Region would take one to two weeks and tensions on the line of contact would start rising afterwards. According to his estimates, Kiev will prioritize seizing the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant and the city of Energodar, as well as reaching the city of Berdyansk on the Sea of Azov in a bid to cut off a land corridor to Crimea.
