Troops have also managed to cause damage to “bridges across the Dnipro”, officials said in a message posted to Telegram, making it “possible to cut off the Russian army from the supply of weapons and personnel from Crimea”.
Russian state news agency Tass reports Russia is using air defence systems in an attempt to fend off Ukrainian attacks in the area.
