Following Ukrainian strikes hitting Kherson bridges, invaders fleeing to Melitopol

After the successful strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the bridges over the Dnipro River in Kherson region, the "leadership" of the occupation forces are withdrawing from the area to another occupied town of Melitopol.

Melitopol Mayor Ivan Fedorov spoke of this on the air of the national news telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The "leadership" of the occupation forces began to flee toward the temporarily occupied Melitopol of the Zaporizhia region after the bridges were damaged in Kherson region. They are redeploying to Melitopol, because it is the closest point to occupied Crimea, so they seek to command forces from there," the official said.
