Videos circulating on social media confirm that the Ukrainian troops are entering the city of Kherson, which was the only Ukrainian regional capital occupied by Russia during its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian army’s Main Directorate of Intelligence confirmed in its address to the Russian soldiers left behind on the western bank of the Dnipro that the Ukrainian military is entering Kherson:
“Kherson returns under the control of Ukraine, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are entering the city. The retreat routes of the Russian invaders are under the fire control of the Ukrainian army. Any attempts to oppose the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be stopped,” HUR wrote.
Khersoners welcomed the first Ukrainian soldiers to reach the city’s central square:
