Russia claims its forces repelled Ukrainian attack in Kherson region

Russia's defense ministry said on Tuesday its forces had repelled Ukrainian attacks in the southern Kherson region and eastern Luhansk region of Ukraine.

Russian-installed officials in Kherson are currently evacuating tens of thousands of civilians eastwards across the Dnipro river, facing a Ukrainian counteroffensive that has already seen Kyiv retake swathes of land seized by Russian forces in the first days of the war.

Reuters was unable to verify battlefield reports.
