Despite the title we are still talking about recce and raids - not a lodgement.

Very little in the way of cover in that area and I suspect digging in exposes a very high water table. There is only one small "port" along the spit and I am sure it's well targeted. It's going to be kind of a no man's land, but the good news is the threats of raids will prevent the Russians from using much of it for artillery or observation.

I think the Ukrainians would likely consider it a win if, through offensive action, they can keep it as "no-man's land". Just like WWI trench raids.

If they own the river and the marshes they can keep the Russians pushed back and away from artillery range of Kherson and Mykolaiv.

No Shorts, No Socks, No Docs... Russia

Russian official staggeringly admits 'we have no socks, shorts, doctors, or intelligence'
A pro-war official has made an incredible public admission of the total lack of equipment provided to Russian soldiers.

One of the Kremlin’s most prominent nationalist politicians said the Russian military does not have an adequate number of doctors or other adequate supplies in an extraordinary tirade against the state of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. During a meeting on Saturday with the mothers of soldiers mobilised for the war, Leonid Slutsky, leader of the populist Liberal Democratic Party and chairman of the foreign relations committee in the lower house of parliament, has been a staunch supporter of the invasion - but offered a surprising public admission of issues facing the Russian military.

He said at the meeting: “There are not enough doctors in the military units; everyone says this. I cannot say they do not exist at all, but they are practically not seen there.

“We must understand that the whole world is watching us. We are the largest state and when we do not have socks, shorts, doctors, intelligence, communications, or simply care for our children, questions arise that will be very difficult to answer.”

Russia considering retreat from occupied nuclear plant​

Russian forces may have started preparations to leave Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant.
The plant, the biggest in Europe, has been under Russian occupation since February, according to Ukrainian firm Energoatom.
It's chief, Petro Kotin, told interviewers in a television appearance on Sunday that intelligence suggests that occupation may soon come to an end.
He said Ukraine has seen "signs" that they are "possibly preparing to leave the plant".
He explained: "Firstly there are a very large number of reports in Russian media that it would be worth vacating and maybe worth handing control to the [International Atomic Energy Agency – the UN’s nuclear watchdog.
"One gets the impression they're packing their bags and stealing everything they can."
