Zelensky Visits Kherson Following Liberation

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the city of Kherson on November 14, days after it was liberated by Ukrainian troops following the withdrawal of Russia’s military.

Footage posted by Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, shows Zelensky in the city as a flag is raised and the anthem played.

Russia confirmed the withdrawal of its armed forces from the region on Friday, November 11.

The Russian withdrawal came just under two months after the Kremlin claimed Kherson Oblast as Russian territory following internationally condemned referendums in occupied Ukrainian territories. Credit: Kyrylo Tymoshenko via Storyful
