The occupiers, who seized the Ukrainian military uniform, plan to organize ‘evacuation’ of Kherson residents in the coming days under the guise of the Ukrainian territorial defense forces. They want to gather civilians in their buses and send them to Kyiv. Enemy vehicles will go along with these buses," the Kherson Regional Military Administration, Ukrinform posted on Facebook reports.
