Calls have been mounting to find ways to support Kyiv's war effort by tapping the bank accounts, investments and other assets frozen after Russia invaded its neighbour in 2022.

On Thursday, Nov. 23, Andriy Yermak, the head of the President’s Office, reported that Chornobayivka in the Kherson Region was subjected to Russian shelling.

“Preliminarily, it is known that the shelling was carried out with cluster munitions,” he wrote, adding that three individuals lost their lives, and four others were wounded in the attack.

Possibly, the increased bombardment in the Kherson region correlates with the Ukrainian Marines achieving a significant objective in the war – successfully crossing the Dnipro River and establishing a bridgehead.

Marines have advanced two infantry units, each numbering between 100-300 men, into a pair of enclaves on the left bank (east bank) of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region.

These bridgeheads are well within the range of attacking aircraft using Russian air bases in Crimea, facilitating Kremlin air strikes against Ukrainian positions with relative ease.
