Russian terror

Repressions against Ukrainians are escalating in the occupied part of Kherson region, particularly in the town of Henichesk.

According to available information, it has become much easier to be subjected to forced imprisonment since local collaborators, aiming to please the occupiers, constantly make false accusations against citizens and carry out unjustified checks.

Furthermore, the occupiers threaten the local population, stating that those without Russian passports will be forcibly deported to Siberia, with all their property confiscated.

Russian losses

During the past 24 hours, aviation conducted 14 strikes on enemy personnel, weapons, and military equipment deployment areas, as well as three strikes on enemy air defense systems.

Missile troops and artillery units hit three command points, ten artillery positions, one air defense system, and one electronic warfare station of the occupiers.
