Russian forces captured Kherson city in the early days of the war

It says the bridge on the dam at Nova Kakhovka – which it has attacked before – is now impassable. The claim has not been independently verified.

It comes just weeks after the key Antonivsky Bridge was put out of action by Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine is waging a counter-offensive towards Kherson city, which Russia captured in the early days of the war.

“The destruction of the road bridge of the Nova Kakhovka dam was ensured, with the result that it was taken out of operation,” the Ukrainian army’s Operational Command South posted to Facebook.

In a daily intelligence update, UK defence officials said Ukrainian precision strikes were likely to have made the road crossing over the Dnieper River “unusable for heavy military vehicles”. Nova Kakhovka lies about 55km (34 miles) north-east of Kherson.

Russian forces had only succeeded in making superficial repairs to the main Antonivsky Bridge, the officials said, which Western military sources said was “completely unusable” after a Himars artillery rocket attack last month.
