Russian forces prevent a column of people from leaving Kherson

Russian invaders are preventing a large convoy of people from leaving Kherson, who do not want to participate in the so-called referendum.

This has been reported on the Telegram channel for the latest news about the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to Ukrinform.

"A large column of people is trying to leave Kherson to protest against the so-called referendum. The occupiers are not letting people out and returning them back,” the report says.

Earlier, the head of the Kherson Regional Military Administration, Hennadiy Lahuda, said that the invaders are planning to hold a "referendum" in Kherson region during the first days of May, stressing that the region is Ukrainian.

President Volodymyr Zelensky told a news conference on April 23 that Ukraine would abandon further talks with Russia if a so-called referendum in Kherson is held and Mariupol defenders are killed.
