Commander of the Russian operation: Kiev is mobilizing its reserves in first line

The commander of Russian operations in Ukraine, Sergei Sorovikin, announced Tuesday that Kiev is mobilizing its reserves in first line.

He also confirmed to the TV channel “Russia 24” that the Russian army is preparing to evacuate the residents of Kherson, the capital of the Russian-annexed region in southern Ukraine, and said: “There is information on the possibility of Kiev regime using methods of warfare prohibited in the region “.

“The Russian army will ensure the safe evacuation of residents” from Kherson, where Ukrainian attacks on civilian infrastructure “pose a direct threat to people’s lives,” he added, noting that the situation in city ​​is “extremely difficult”.

In turn, the pro-Russian governor of Kherson announced the decision to relocate the residents of some cities on the other bank of the Dnieper River.

Hit air and ground targets

In addition, Sergei Sorovikin said that the air force carried out more than 34,000 sorties and used more than 7,000 aircraft-guided weapons.
