"Battles are now raging in the Snigirevka area of the frontline in the Nikolayev Region," the official wrote on his Telegram channel.

In his words, the Ukrainian forces "attempted to carry out reconnaissance-in-force operations in three areas: near Posad-Pokrovskoye, Berislav and Snigirevka."

"In the first two zones, the adversary suffered heavy losses and had to withdraw, but the Snigirevka area has seen heavy fighting since [Tuesday] morning," Stremousov added.
