In February, the tankmen of the 59th Brigade heroically broke through the encirclement near Oleshky, ensuring the exit of the Ukrainian military. Now they have returned to Kherson region, which was liberated with heavy fighting. After the offensive in the South, the tankmen have an operational pause: they are repairing captured Russian tanks and preparing for the next battles.
«I said: the New Year we will celebrate in Kherson and the summer - on the Crimean beaches», said Yevhen Palchenko, 23-year-old Hero of Ukraine [the highest Ukrainian national title for performing an outstanding heroic act].
In Kherson region, as he says, the Russians «got a big kick in the nuts» and retreated to the left bank of the Dnipro, because they could no longer rapidly deliver ammunition. Tankmen told hromadske journalists how the Armed Forces managed to liberate Kherson.
