Ukrainian authorities order curfew in Kherson

Restrict travel to/from city

KIEV, November 12. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities imposed a curfew in Kherson on Saturday and restricted entry and exit from the city, citing mine clearance efforts, Yaroslav Yanushevich, chief of Ukraine’s Kherson regional military administration, said.

"We have to impose a curfew starting today, from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.," Yanushevich said in a video posted on the administration’s Telegram channel.

"I would also like to inform you that coming into the city and leaving it will be restricted to ensure demining activities," he added.

On Friday, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky announced that the Ukrainian authorities had no intention of allowing journalists into Kherson under the pretext of demining.
