As of February 1, 2023, the Kinburn Peninsula 

is in the so-called1 "gray" zone.

Neither the Armed Forces of Ukraine nor the Russian occupying forces have full control over this territory yet.

Nataliya Humenyuk, head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces "South" told about this in the telethon.

"Fire control from one and the other side does not allow establishing the absolute management of any force. Therefore, these territories are geographically difficult to consolidate. They are constantly under shelling control: if our side prevails, it can be considered that our control. If on the other hand on the other hand," she said.

According to Humenyuk, the occupiers have connections with the Kinburn spit.

Thanks to this, they can transfer personnel and equipment to the peninsula.

"But the enemy has land connections. And even territorially, islands and peninsulas are closer to the left bank of the Dnipro River. That's why they appear there more often, but also break out of there more often," said Nataliya Humenyuk.

We will remind you that

the situation in the Kherson direction remains difficult

, but stable.

According to Yevgen Yerin, the head of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavria region, Russian troops are entering the Kinburn Spit, but they do not maintain powerful bases there.
