Last autumn, due to a possible worsening of the situation on the contact line, residents of the Kherson region were evacuated from the right bank of the Dnieper to the left, including Kherson and Berislav. Sergei Surovikin, who later commanded a group of Russian troops in the special operations zone, reported that the troops were withdrawing to enter the defense on the left bank of the Dnieper. Since then, Kherson and the right coastal part of the adjacent territory have been under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
