Residents of the Kakhovka district of the Kherson region will be forcibly evacuated from November 6. This is reported by TASS with reference to the occupation authorities of the region.
According to the agency, residents of the area were urged to immediately leave the settlements due to the "high level of military threat."
On October 27, the pro-Russian "administration" of the annexed Kherson region was evacuated from Kherson to the left bank of the Dnieper.
Before that, in October, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, stated that the evacuation of people and property by Russia from the occupied Kherson was 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, and a few days before that, General of the Russian Army Sergei Surovikin announced the possibility of “making the most difficult decisions” in Kherson.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that the Russian military is preparing a terrorist attack at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station in the Kherson region, the dam could be mined. Military experts told The Insider that blowing up the dam does not make any military sense for Ukraine, while Russia could theoretically take this “crazy” step in an attempt to keep Kherson. Most likely, the occupying authorities are deliberately fomenting panic in order to force the local population to leave, the interlocutors concluded.
