Russian Forces Capture Vuhlehirsk Plant

The second-largest power plant in Ukraine has been taken over by Russian soldiers.

The takeover of the Vuhlehirsk power station was made as the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy vowed to retake Kherson, a southern city that was lost to Russia in the early stages of the conflict, amid hopes of a counteroffensive.

The Soviet-era coal-fired Vuhlehirsk power station was purportedly taken by forces backed by Russia on Wednesday, marking Moscow’s first big victory in more than three weeks.

Oleksiy Arestovych, a presidential advisor to Ukraine, contrasted this as only “a little tactical gain” for Russia.

The “major redeployment” of troops to Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson in three southern areas has been acknowledged by Moscow.

Unconfirmed sources stated that Russian forces used many rocket launchers to strike the city of Mykolaiv.

However, Ukrainian forces in the south claimed to have killed 66 Russian soldiers, damaged three tanks, and decimated two armies on the previous day.
