For the first time since the capture of the Kherson region, Russian invaders have taken all the equipment from Chernobaevka and are fleeing Kherson. This was announced by the adviser to the head of the Kherson regional military administration, Sergei Khlan, on the air of the FREEDOM telethon.
According to Khlan, there are fewer Russians in the regional center, but they continue to rob the city and intimidate the local population. Chernobaevka was empty for the first time in many months.
«Preparation for street fighting in the city of Kherson is not visible. Fortifications are not visible, some new structures and new sandbags and roadblocks there – all this is not observed. They stated that the evacuation was supposedly completed, but nevertheless they continue to rob. Yesterday it was noted that the occupiers continued to pack the equipment of medical institutions, continued to take it out, including «ambulances». We saw satellite images of Chernobaevka, which looks completely empty. We all remember, of course, the series, when our artillery worked out the technique of the invaders. But despite this, the invaders always used Chernobaevka as a logistics center, because it is logistically convenient for the redistribution of equipment and weapons. Here are the pictures… Chernobaevka was completely empty of equipment and ammunition. And this is the first time since the occupation of the city of Kherson and the Kherson region»,” Khlan said.
The official also noted that the Russians are transferring equipment to the left bank of the Dnieper. He clarified that the withdrawal of equipment from the left bank is visible in the area of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station at the crossings in the villages of Lvova and Kazatskoye, towards Novaya Kakhovka. Khlan also added that this is the movement of equipment in the area of the Antonovsky bridge on pontoons, & # 171; mix & # 187; with civilian vehicles.
As for civilians, Khlan said that several thousand people left Kherson for Russia.
«It is reported that the invaders provided 1000 seats in buses every day. Although they say that 30,000 were transferred to Russia, one can simply calculate: they took no more than 5-6,000 to the Russian Federation. They promise 100 thousand hryvnias in the equivalent of a one-time assistance and some kind of housing certificate. It is not clear what kind of certificate it is, where it will be applied. But they say that supposedly it can be used as a down payment on a mortgage. Maybe somewhere in the Khabarovsk Territory. People are taken to the Krasnodar Territory, then contact with people is lost», Khlan said.
The adviser to the head of the OVA also expressed fears that repressions in Kherson could intensify, as they refuse to leave cities are predominantly people with an active pro-Ukrainian position. Now the invaders are trying to ensure that as many people as possible leave the city.
«Yesterday there was another explosion in one of the police stations. Let's note that these police stations are empty. This is the second explosion at the police station. They are empty, but the occupiers are starting to stir up a scandal, allegedly «you see, terrorist acts». Here, «The armed forces of Ukraine arrange terrorist acts». That is, the situation is being escalated, they are urging people to evacuate from Kherson», — Khlan added.
- The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that the invaders had taken public transport from Kherson to Crimea.
