the Russian troops trying to cross from the right bank to the left bank of the Dnieper in the Kherson Region, fleeing from the offensive of the Armed Forces, are being covered by the civilian population. To do this, they announced an evacuation and are creating a stir. Nataliya Gumenyuk, head of the United Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces, stated this on the air of the national telethon “Yedini Novyny”, reports Ukrinform. “It is unclear and confusing to everyone what the collaborative authorities were up to with this evacuation. Of course, it became their practice to cover themselves with the civilian population. They are afraid, they are terrified, they understand and realize that the advance of our troops is inevitable, that our power is putting a lot of pressure on it and they are trying to hide somewhere, reformat their defense somewhere, because it on the right bank cannot withstand our attack very well. Therefore, they try to move to the left bank, where they think it will be more peaceful. But in order to create a denser population, they drag the civilian population along with them,” Humenyuk said. She added that the legitimate Ukrainian authorities of the Kherson Region appeal to the citizens not to help the invaders to create a stir and to be aware of their false messages. Humenyuk also reported that the occupiers are currently fleeing from the right bank to the left bank, hiding behind the civilian population. “They are trying to create an alternative crossing along the Antoniv bridge, under the guise of civilians, to take away what is very dear to their hearts – their families, their documentation, their pension fund, which they deployed in the Kherson region , occupation institutions that were dragged there. They try to move from the right bank to the left, not from the left to the right. And they are trying to create a stir, allegedly terrifying the arrival of the Armed Forces. But the conscious part of the population does not give in,” the spokeswoman emphasized. Humenyuk called on citizens who are currently going to the so-called evacuation to foresee ways of returning from it, not to give documents to the Russians, and to avoid contacts with the occupation authorities.
