MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia is moving its Dnepr group of forces to “more favourable positions” east of the Dnipro River in Ukraine, state news agency RIA cited the Russian defence ministry as saying on Monday.
Russia’s military said on Friday that its forces had thwarted a Ukrainian attempt to forge a bridgehead on the eastern bank of the Dnipro and on nearby islands.
Reuters could not independently verify the military reports.
