The Russian occupation troops are preparing to shell Kherson, which is temporarily under their control. This was stated by the head of the Nikolaev OVA Vitaly Kim.
«Send out messages «evacuate, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will shell Kherson». Knowing the Russian tactics, and that they are digging fortifications in the Chaplynka area for cannon artillery in order to hit Kherson, I have a feeling that the Russians are preparing to hit Kherson. Unfortunately», — he said.
At the same time, Kim urged not to believe in the nonsense and propaganda of the invaders, and also stressed that the work of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is carried out in all directions.
