Russians are trying to turn Kherson Oblast into a scorched earth while retreating

Committing horrific war crimes is the only thing the Russian barbarians are consistent in, and their main tactic of warfare is “scorched earth.” They are simply repeating what the Soviets did during World War II.

Retreating, Russian orcs are destroying Kherson. According to Most, they blew up the TV center, boiler buildings, and other infrastructure facilities. The city continues to have problems with communication, which is now available only near the Antonivsky bridge. The bridge itself has also been blown up, according to numerous media reports.

The occupiers took absolutely all the valuables collected over 45 years from the Kherson Art Museum, reports UNIAN with reference to the head of the Kherson City Military Administration, Halyna Luhova.

“The RF wants to turn Kherson into a ‘city of death,'” Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, wrote on Twitter. “Artillery [of the Russians] on the left bank [of the Dnipro] plans to turn the city into ruins. This is what ‘Russian world’ looks like: come, rob, celebrate, kill “witnesses” and leave ruins behind.”

The Russians are blowing up bridges all over Kherson Oblast and mining everything they can, including houses. Moreover, they do it especially cynically – they write on explosives “from a pure heart”, “with love from Russia”, etc., reports the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. “The insidiousness and baseness of the invaders know no bounds. They absolutely do not care that peaceful Ukrainians, often with children, will return to the mined homes.”

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, also mentioned the mining of the city in his address yesterday evening: “the occupiers are mining everything: power lines, enterprise buildings, fields, forests”

He called the de-mining the “first and basic” task for restoring normal living conditions. “I have often heard estimates that clearing Ukraine of Russian mines will take decades. We can’t wait that long. We have to do in a few years what elsewhere in the world could take decades,” the president said.
