Ukraine has begun the forced evacuation of residents of 31 Kyiv-controlled settlements in the Kherson region. Governor Vladimir Saldo announced this in his Telegram channel.
According to Saldo, Kherson residents are being intimidated to force them to leave their homes: hand grenades are thrown into entrances, into courtyards or onto roofs, explosive devices are dropped from drones, children are taken away from their parents and taken away.
According to the governor of the Kherson region, civilians are redirected to collection points, then transported to filtration camps in the Nikolaev region. The men are sent to the Nikolaev military commissariats for further dispatch to the combat zone.
On September 21, Saldo reported that Kyiv could be preparing an information provocation in Kherson. According to him, film crews from German and Spanish television came to the city to create staged propaganda materials.
The Kherson region became part of Russia on September 30, 2022, along with the DPR, LPR and Zaporozhye region. On October 19, 2022, martial law was introduced in the regions. November 11, 2022 Russia controls most of the region, but Kherson itself was forced to abandon Russian troops.
