Civilians have been told to stay under cover as the Ukrainian army searches for the Russians who failed to flee Kherson and infiltrated the locals.

“Their number is not known. They have discarded their uniforms and are wearing civilian clothes,” said Serghei Khlan, a regional council deputy.

Thus, sabotage operations and false flag attacks cannot be ruled out, as reported by the spokesman of the Southern Command of the Ukrainian army. He said a major clearance operation was needed in the area.

“For this reason, we are in no hurry to announce our successes in other directions and other cities,” he said.
