Zelenskyy Calls Liberation of Kherson 'Beginning of the End



Ukraine has retaken the city of Kherson after an eight-month Russian occupation.



On November 14, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited the newly liberated city, calling Russia's withdrawal the "beginning of the end of the war."



However, Zelenskyy also acknowledged the heavy price Ukrainian soldiers are paying. As he walked the streets of the city, he awarded medals to soldiers and posed with them for selfies.





"We are step by step coming to all the temporarily occupied territories," he said.




The retaking of Kherson has been one of Ukraine's biggest successes in the nearly nine months since Russia invaded the country.

It is another blow to the Kremlin, and could become a springboard for further advances into occupied Ukrainian territory.









However, large parts of the country's east and south are still under Russian control, and the city of Kherson is still within reach of Moscow's shells and missiles.




Zelenskyy himself noted that the city is full of booby traps and mines. And Ukrainian authorities say evidence is/ emerging of Russian atrocities.




The end of Russia's occupation of the city — the only provincial capital to be taken since its February invasion — led to days of celebration. But with winter coming, residents are living without heat, water and electricity, and are low on food and medicine.





Residents said departing Russian troops plundered the city as they withdrew. They also destroyed key infrastructure before retreating across the Dnieper River to its eastern bank.

ロシア軍撤退しながら、街を破壊し略奪した。Dnieper 川(ロシアからウクライナを通って黒海に注ぐ)から東部川沿い地域に渡って撤退前に主要なインフラを破壊した。



Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refused to comment on Zelenskyy's visit, saying only, "You know that it is the territory of the Russian Federation." Russia illegally annexed the Kherson region and three other regions earlier in 2022.

ロシア政府はゼレンスキーの訪問に対するコメントを拒否し、”ロシア同盟の領土だ。” とだけ言った。




A Washington-based think tank, the  Institute for the Study of War, said that Ukraine has won "an important victory" in retaking Kherson, but "it has by no means liberated the minimum territory essential to its future security and economic survival."





NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, during a visit to The Hague on November 14, also warned, "We should not make the mistake of underestimating Russia."
