Ukraine counter offensive: Fighting intensifies in Kherson region

In the south of Ukraine, there has been fierce fighting as Ukrainian forces tries to gain ground in a counteroffensive to retake ground occupied by Russian troops. Officials say it will not be a quick operation and are asking Ukrainians to be patient. The Ukrainian military has seen some modest victories in this counter offensive, retaking a handful of villages in the region, but has yet to mount a push to Kherson city where more fortified Russian defences await. Winter is coming soon. Conditions will make it much harder for troops to maneuver. That is why both sides trying to lock in gains on the battlefield. The Ukrainians trying to push the offensive in Kherson, and Russia looking to entrench even further. Through it all, civilians just looking to find any place to stay safe.
