Ukrainian forces could be within striking distance of a “dam which controls the water supply in Crimea” and the Ukraine would most certainly want to retake “control of that supply.”
Ukraine have made huge advances close to Kherson and are close to Crimea and the battle is “developing in Ukraine’s favour.”
Professor Michael Clarke, who specialises in defence studies, said that Ukraine is within striking distance of the water supply.
He told Sky News, “The Ukrainians are conducting quite a big offensive to take back Kherson.
“They’ve opened up a 50-mile front to the northeast of Kherson and there are reports over the last 24 hours that the Ukrainians may have got as far as Kiselivka which is quite close to Kherson.
“They may be within striking distance of Nova Kakhovk which is a dam which controls the water supply in Crimea.
“Ukraine would love to retake that and be back in control of that supply.
“We’re keeping a very close eye on those two areas because that battle is so far developing in Ukraine’s favour as the days go on.”
