Putin has rejected requests from commanders to retreat from Kherson

As Russian Losses Mount in Ukraine, Putin Gets More Involved in War Strategy

NYTimes https://archive.ph/8I6TX

The Russian president has rejected requests from commanders in the field that they be allowed to retreat from Kherson, a vital city in Ukraines south.

President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has thrust himself more directly into strategic planning for the war in Ukraine in recent weeks, American officials said, including rejecting requests from his commanders on the ground that they be allowed to retreat from the vital southern city of Kherson.

A withdrawal from Kherson would allow the Russian military to pull back across the Dnipro River in an orderly way, preserving its equipment and saving the lives of soldiers.

But such a retreat would be another humiliating public acknowledgment of Mr. Putins failure in the war, and would hand a second major victory to Ukraine in one month. Kherson was the first major city to fall to the Russians in the initial invasion, and remains the only regional capital under Moscows control. Retaking it would be a major accomplishment for President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.
