Heniches’k, Ukraine to be New Russian Administration Capital of Kherson

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Fomin has told Russian state-owned media that Heniches’k, Kherson Oblast, Ukraine will become the new administrative capital of Russian-occupied Kherson Oblast. This announcement comes the same day as Russian Ground Forces evacuated from the banks of the Dnieper River and blew several bridges that spanned the river. Ukrainian troops and civilians have been celebrating in the streets of Kherson city all day.

For the past sixteen hours, reports have indicated that Ukrainian civilians from the Avtoban construction company have been ordered to dig trenches in the vicinity of Heniches’k. The Ukrainian town is less than 30km from the Crimean border on the Sea of Azov, able to be reinforced and supplied by the Black Sea Fleet.
