Russian occupiers in Kherson have stolen a pair of statues from the city’s streets, users on social media claimed on Oct. 24.

The statues are of Russian admiral Fyodor Ushakov, said to have won every naval engagement he was in, and Russian general Alexander Suvorov, known as the “Last Generalissimo of the Russian Empire.”

In addition, social media users accused Russian forces of robbing local residents for both food and property, as well as looting museums.

Russian troops in Kherson have been preparing for an attack on the city – the only provincial Ukrainian capital under Russian occupation – while simultaneously formulating withdrawal plans. Ukraine has effectively established fire control over Russian supply lines into Kherson city itself, and has left Russian troops in the region in an extremely vulnerable position.

According to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine has liberated 88 settlements in Kherson Oblast so far.
