Situation in Kherson Region remains unchanged, official says

Deputy Governor Kirill Stremousov said that region is holding the line

KHERSON, October 22. /TASS/. The situation in the Kherson Region remains unchanged with the allied forces holding the line, Deputy Governor Kirill Stremousov said.

"Nothing has changed in the Kherson direction. We are holding the line," he wrote on Telegram.

On Tuesday, the Kherson Region’s Acting Governor Vladimir Saldo announced that civilians living on the right bank of the Dnieper River would be evacuated to the left bank due to the risk of flooding in the event that the Ukrainian military attacked the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant. He also said that Ukraine had been amassing huge forces near the cities of Nikolayev and Krivoy Rog so efforts to establish major defenses were another reason for the relocation of civilians.
