Ukrainian President Volodomir Zelensky has said that Russia committed war crimes in Kherson, where it withdrew last week.

The Russian army has left behind the same atrocities in other regions it entered in Ukraine.”
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced last Friday that Russian troops have completed the withdrawal from Ukraine’s Kherson region, which has been occupied for a long time.
According to the Russian news agency TASS, in its daily briefing on Friday morning, the Ministry of Defense reported that all Russian troops and equipment from Kherson were moved to the eastern bank of the Dinpro River. Kherson was the only regional capital Russia had captured since February 24.
