This is a special issue of the Rondeli Russian Military Digest dedicated to the Russo-Ukrainian War, composed on the basis of numerous open sources.


Black Sea Area 

On 11 November 2022, Ukrainian forces liberated the city of Kherson.

Initial Ukrainian advance on some sections of the frontline began on 9 November. With the Russian announcement of withdrawal from the western bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast, on 10 November Ukrainians launched rapid advance all over the frontline. By the afternoon 11 November, they had entered Kherson city from the west, liberating numerous villages and towns, including Snihurivka and Beryslav as well as Oleksandrivka on the Black Sea coast which had likely changed hands more times than any other place during the war, now coming back under Ukrainian control one last time.

As of the afternoon 11 November, no organized Russian resistance existed on the western bank of the Dnipro River, although reports indicated that large groups of troops might have been left behind in the Russian withdrawal.
