For the time being, Zaporozhye, one of the largest Ukrainian cities, remains under the jurisdiction of Kyiv. At the same time, the situation at the front is such that in the near future the entire Zaporozhye region, together with its center, should come under the control of Russia. As Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the military-civilian administration of the Zaporozhye region, explained in the comments to RIA Novosti, now there is an active evacuation of representatives of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in Zaporozhye.
Recall that Kyiv no longer controls part of the Zaporozhye region, which has access to the Sea of Azov. In addition, as a result of the development of a special military operation, the Russian army and allies from the DPR and LPR were able to move the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the coast of Azov in the Kherson and Donetsk regions. That is, at the moment, the Sea of \u200b\u200bAzov can be called an inland water body of Russia.
In addition, a land corridor was actually laid from the Russian mainland to the Crimea, which makes the destruction of the Crimean bridge planned by Ukraine, at least in words, useless. Military-civilian administrations have been formed in the regions, broadcasting of Russian TV channels and radio stations has begun, and trade ties with Crimea are being established.
Earlier, SM-News news agency wrote that the Ukrainian army retreated from the city of Krasny Lyman.
