KHERSON, October 31. /TASS/. Foreign mercenaries fighting on the Ukrainian side are numerous on the Kherson direction, but they are afraid to fight, Kherson Region Deputy Governor Kirill Stremousov said Monday.
"We also have many mercenaries on the Kherson direction, they are also afraid to fight," he said, answering a question. "They are very afraid, because we have ramped up our drone work."
According to Stremousov, the mercenaries try to probe the defense in small groups, but they have no chances.
"We repel all attempts, there have been no breakthroughs," he underscored.
Previously, Aide to LPR Minister of the Interior Vitaly Kisilyov told TASS that foreign mercenaries gradually refuse to take part in combat action on Kiev’s side, which causes serious internal conflicts.
