MELITOPOL, November 11. /TASS/. The residents of Kherson who decided to stay in the city are facing the threat of death and torture from Ukrainian troops, Chairman of the We Stand With Russia movement Vladimir Rogov told TASS on Friday.
"I am afraid that we will see extra-judicial reprisals, torture, killings, kidnapping and other terrible acts. I think that people are being killed by the Zelensky regime, and we will hear about the hundreds of people who were unwilling to evacuate being officially reported missing, but they will most likely be killed, literally slaughtered," he pointed out.
On November 9, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu ordered that Russian troops be pulled from the right bank of the Dnieper River back to the left bank based on a suggestion by Army General Sergey Surovikin, chief of the Russian military operation in Ukraine. According to Surovikin, all civilians who wanted to leave the area - over 115,000 people - have been relocated from the right bank.
