The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) liberated more than 90 settlements in the Kherson region, where more than 12 thousand people live. This was reported by the operational command "South" on Facebook.
Now "complexes of stabilization measures" are being implemented in the liberated villages, the report says.
Also, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that by the evening of October 24, Ukrainian servicemen had ousted Russia from the settlements of Karmazinovka, Myasozharovka and Nevskoye in the Luhansk region and Novosadovo in the Donetsk region. In order to slow down the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russia continues to "mine bridges and crossings on the retreat path in the Nikolaev and Kherson regions," the report says.
“The Russian occupation troops continue to actively recruit prisoners both in Russian and in the temporarily occupied territories in order to compensate for current losses. After the so-called conversations with representatives of the FSB of Russia, most of the criminals were released from correctional colony No. 90 in Kherson. At the same time, the invaders continue to evacuate the wounded to the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.”
Earlier, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, said that the evacuation of people and property by Russia from the occupied Kherson is an information operation and manipulation. According to him, in fact, the Russian authorities are bringing new military units into the city and preparing the streets for defense. On October 22, the occupying authorities of the Kherson region demanded that civilians urgently leave Kherson. A few days earlier, General of the Russian Army Sergei Surovikin announced the possibility of "making the most difficult decisions" on Kherson.
