"Our presence will be felt," he said, before warning that "the situation in the Kherson region is still very dangerous" due to the existence of antipersonnel mines.
"I ask all residents of Kherson to be very careful and immediately report all dangerous objects to rescue teams. The arrest of Russian soldiers and mercenaries who were left behind in the territory and the neutralization of saboteurs is also underway. Zelenski clinched.
On November 11, Ukrainian forces regained control of the city of Kherson, taken by Russia on March 2, amid a withdrawal of Russian forces across the Dnieper River in the face of advances made in recent weeks by the Ukrainian Army in this region.
