Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the city days after the withdrawal of Russian troops from Kherson, Ukraine. Zelenski, who came to support the people of the region, sang the national anthem of Ukraine after the Ukrainian flag was hoisted in front of the administrative building in the square. Addressing the soldiers, Zelenski stated that the journalists who come here take risks similar to the soldiers and said, “The situation in the Kherson region is still very dangerous.”
“We are ready for peace, peace for the whole country”
“I think it’s necessary to be here to support people and talk about the people of Kherson,” Zelenski said. “We need to make it feel like we’re not just talking, we’re really coming back and raising our flag.” Expressing his thanks to NATO and its allies, Zelenskiy said, “We are ready for peace, peace for the whole country.”
Ukrainian troops arrived in the city on Friday after Russia announced that they had evacuated their troops from Kherson and retreated to the west bank of the Dnipro River. The Ukrainian soldiers were greeted with enthusiasm by the people, and the people gathered in the square and unfurled the Ukrainian flag.
