Quote: “Residents of Kherson and liberated settlements of the region! There is still a high probability of enemy attacks in the right-bank part of Kherson Oblast. As the Russian army flees, it is beginning to fight with civilians out of desperation. We have seen this repeatedly in many liberated localities.
Also, before they fled, these vile enemies caused serious damage to our critical infrastructure, which provides electricity, heat and water.
Therefore, we strongly recommend evacuating to safer areas. The team at the Kherson Oblast Military Administration is ready to help you with this.”
Details: For the latest information and to sign up for evacuation, residents can contact the following hotlines: 0 800 330 951; 38 091 481 7845.
Yanushevych promised that evacuated residents would receive whatever help they need.
