The Russian army will leave Kherson, announced Shoigu and Surovikin. “Paper”

The commander of the group of Russian troops in the “special operation zone” Sergei Surovikin proposed to withdraw troops from the right bank of the Dnieper River. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu agreed with the proposal and ordered the troops to withdraw from Kherson beyond the Dnieper. About it reported news agency TASS.

What else did Surovikin say during the report.

  • According to the “commander of the special operation”, the retreat is necessary because of the threat of an explosion of the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station from the Ukrainian army. This may flood the right bank of the Dnieper.
  • The Russian army cannot supply Kherson and the settlements closest to it in the “current conditions.”
  • The “troop maneuver” will be carried out in the “short time”.

After Surovikin’s report, Shoigu stated that the main task of the General Staff is “to save the lives of military personnel, as well as to take care of the civilian population.”
