Several bridges connecting Ukraine's east and west banks of the Dnipro River were heavily damaged following Russia's retreat from the west bank of the Dnipro River, including from Kherson, on Nov. 11.

Multiple sections of the Antonovskiy Bridge that crosses the Dnipro River near Kherson were heavily damaged, with some spans having dropped into the water below, according to new satellite imagery published by U.S. satellite imagery company Maxar.

The company also published images showing significant damage to the Nova Kakhovka dam near Kherson, with sections of the dam destroyed.
