The situation in the Kherson region

On November 9, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and the new commander of the Russian occupation forces in Ukraine, Sergei Surovikin, announced that the Russian army was allegedly leaving the right bank of the Kherson region. 

At the same time, it became known that the Russian army blew up 5 bridges in the region. Kherson deputy Sergei Khlan also said that “the front of the Russians collapsed” and they began a mass retreat.
