Russia ordered the withdrawal of troops from Herzon
Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu ordered the withdrawal of Russian troops from Kherson, an important strategic city on the west bank of the Dnieper River in Ukraine, on September 9, which is seen as one of the major turning points in the war situation since Russian troops invaded Ukraine nearly 8 and a half months ago. But Ukrainian officials remain cautious, stressing that Russia must match its words with deeds.

According to foreign media reports, Shoigu made the order on the advice of Ukrainian special military operations Commander Sergei Surovikin, who thought it was difficult to resupply Herzon and proposed to build a defense line along the eastern bank of the Dnieper River as a way to save Russia’s flagging army.

But Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukraine’s president, said his country was reacting cautiously to the alleged withdrawal of Russian troops, saying it was too early to talk about a withdrawal of Russian troops from Herzon. “It makes no sense to talk about a Russian withdrawal until the Ukrainian flag flies over Herzon,” and according to Ukrainian observations, Russia’s armed forces still have manpower on the ground and are sending more personnel to the area.

Ukraine does have reason to be cautious, according to the BBC. The first is that retreating Russian troops are likely to leave behind mines and decoy devices. Second, since the Russian side has withdrawn its troops to the east coast and forced the evacuation of a large number of civilians, the next fear of a large-scale attack on Hesson; Finally, every time Russia suffers a major military setback, civilians are likely to be the target, and more missile and drone strikes are likely to make a tough winter for Ukrainians.

Mr. Shoigu’s order to withdraw from the west bank of the Dnieper came shortly after the death in a car crash of Kirill Stremousov, the deputy governor of Ukraine’s Russian-backed Kherzon region.

Before his death, he said that the Nazis in Ukraine would soon run out of money due to the loss of the US Democratic Party in the mid-term elections. He often criticized Ukrainian officials and Ukrainian troops as “Nazis” and “fascists” on social media platforms.
