A Russian-installed official in Kherson says Russia’s armed forces will likely quit the western bank of the Dnipro river.
“Most likely our units, our soldiers, will leave for the left (eastern) bank,” Kirill Stremousov, the Russian-installed deputy civilian administrator of the Kherson region, said in an interview with Solovyov Live.
Stremousov urged civilians remaining in the city to leave immediately.
In recent weeks, Russia has evacuated thousands of people in what Kyiv calls forced deportation.
The city of Kherson is the only major Ukrainian city that Russian forces have captured intact.
