Islam News – Ukrainian troops are advancing on the strategic southern port city of Kherson after Russia said it would begin to retreat from it. But Ukrainian officials are wary: They fear it is a trap meant to lure their forces into brutal urban combat.

The Ukrainian military said it recaptured 12 settlements in the region, even as its forces encountered Russian-laid mines and roadblocks. For days Ukrainians have warned that Russian soldiers were changing into civilian clothes, moving into houses and fortifying positions outside the city.

Death toll: The top U.S. general said that Russia and Ukraine have each probably suffered more than 100,000 casualties. He also raised the possibility of peace talks, though Western officials say they are unlikely in the near future.
