Ukrainian military personnel de-occupied seven more settlements in the Kherson region. The total number of those liberated from the Russian occupiers n.p. region has grown to 53, said the acting head of the Kherson OVA Dmitry Butriy on the air telethon.
“I’ll tell you that today 53 settlements have been officially confirmed and liberated. We submit this information only when it is agreed with the General Staff, because before the complete liberation, the military is still carrying out certain demining actions there,” Butriy said.
However, he stressed that the invaders continue to shell almost the entire de-occupied territory of the Kherson region. That is why the local population is not yet recommended to return to their homes.
Recall, a day earlier, Dmitry Butriy said about 46 settlements of the Kherson region, control over which was established by Ukrainian defenders. Then the head of the UVA called on the residents of these territories to evacuate to safer areas due to ongoing enemy shelling.
