Russian occupation “administration” is going to relocate residents of the Kakhovka District, Kherson Oblast, deeper into Moscow-held territory, Russian news agency TASS reported on Nov. 1.
“Rising military threat levels” were cited as the reason for the move.
Ukraine’s General Staff said that Moscow has already moved its civilian “administration” in the region from Kherson to Skadovsk – 60 kilometers south of the regional capital.
Russian propaganda continues to spread narratives of Ukraine allegedly planning to blow up the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Plant dam, which would flood vast areas of Kherson Oblast.
Collaborationist and Moscow-appointed “governor” of Kherson Oblast, Volodymyr Saldo, earlier said that the “evacuation zone” from the temporarily captured settlements of Kherson Oblast was expanded by 15 kilometers from the Dnipro River.
Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine cover all the bridges in the region with suppressive firepower, leaving Russian forces with no opportunity to escape from Kherson.
Ukrainian Military Intelligence reported Ukraine could liberate the city of Kherson by the end of November.
