Ukraine-Russia news – live: Putin’s retreat sees Kyiv recapture first Kherson village

‘Today is a historic day. We are taking back Kherson,’ said Zelensky Please refresh the page or navigate to another page on the site to be automatically logged in Please refresh your browser to be logged in Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky has said Kherson is “ours” after Russian troops withdrew from the region earlier today. The remarks come after Ukrainian forces arrived in Kherson after eight months of Russian occupation. “Our people. Ours. Kherson,” Mr Zelensky wrote on Telegram alongside video footage that appeared to show Ukrainian troops together with residents of the city, cheering and celebrating their latest victory. In a video address, the President added: “Today is a historic day. We are in the process of taking back Kherson. “As of now, our defenders are on the approaches to the city. But special units are already in the city.” Earlier today, Moscow said more than 30,000 Russian troops were withdrawn to the eastern bank of the Dnipro River. The area they left included the city of Kherson, the only provincial capital Russia had captured during its nearly nine-month invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s withdrawal from the region marks one of its greatest defeats since its invasion of Ukraine and could be a potential turning point in the war. Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said Germany’s main focus in its aid to Ukraine is to help the country defend itself from Russian air raids and to help rebuild its infrastructure. Speaking with RND newspapers on Friday, he said: “Russia is bombing Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. Russia wants to make sure people in Ukraine can’t survive the winter cold.” He continued: “We are currently discussing with many German companies what they can do to counter this destruction.” Germany has previously sent air defence systems to Ukraine, which have helped minimise the destruction so far. However, Germany would work with partners to send more, Mr Scholz added. Earlier today, he agreed in a call with the Ukrainian president that Germany would continue to send air defence systems. Crowds of people have gathered in Kyiv’s Maidan Square to celebrate the liberation of the Kherson region, after Russia’s retreat. The city of Kherson was the only provincial capital that Russia had captured since it first invaded Ukraine in February. There is significant new damage to the major Nova Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine following Russia’s withdrawal from nearby Kherson city, according to US satellite imagery company Maxar. In a statement, Maxar said: “Satellite images this morning…reveal significant new damage to several bridges and the Nova Kakhovka dam in the aftermath of the Russian retreat from Kherson across the Dnipro river.” It said sections of the northern extent of the dam and sluice gates had been “deliberately destroyed”. Earlier this week Russia accused Ukraine of shelling the dam. Both sides have repeatedly accused each of planning to breach the dam using explosives, which would flood much of the area downstream and would likely cause major destruction around Kherson. Satellite images show the extent of the damage on the Antonivsky bridge, the only nearby road crossing from the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson to the Russian-controlled eastern bank of the Dnipro River. This morning, Ukraine’s public broadcaster quoted local residents saying that the bridge had collapsed. The pictures show whole sections of the bridge missing. The next road crossing across the Dnipro is more than 70 km (43 miles) from Kherson city. President Zelensky has backed a fundraising campaign to help Ukraine build a fleet of naval drones to protect its cities against Russian missile strikes from the Black Sea. United24, an initiative launched by Zelensky to raise charitable donations for Ukraine following Russia’sinvasion, said Ukraine needed 100 drones, each of which costs 10 million hryvnias (£230,000) Since launching its full-scale invasion, Russia has carried out missile strikes from ships in the Black Sea and from Crimea, which Moscow seized in 2014 and is home to Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. “We must defend the waters of our seas and peaceful cities from Russian missiles launched from ships,” Mr Zelensky wrote on Telegram. “Naval drones will also help unblock the corridor for civilian ships transporting grain for the world.” Russia started blockading Ukraine‘s Black Sea ports soon after the February invasion, blocking grain exports. Three ports were unblocked under a deal brokered in July by the United Nations and Turkey to help ease a global food crisis. Russia suspended its participation after what it said was a Ukrainian attack on three of its Black Sea Fleet vessels late last month using aerial and naval drones, but later returned to the deal that is due to expire next week. Ukrainian President Zelensky said special units of the armed forces were already in the southern city of Kherson following Russia’s withdrawal and described the moment as historic. “Today is a historic day. We are in the process of taking Kherson back,” he said in a video address. Other Ukrainian forces were stationed on the approaches to the city, he added. Advanced units of Ukraine’s armed forces have reached the western bank of the Dnipro river in some parts of the Kherson region, the general staff said in a Facebook statement on Friday. The statement was issued hours after Ukrainian troops entered Kherson, in the south of Ukraine, in the wake of a major Russian retreat. The Russian foreign ministry said it had banned 200 US nationals from entering Russia, including a sister and two brothers of President Joe Biden, in response to personal sanctions from Washington. It said it had banned entry by Valerie Biden Owens, James Brian Biden, and Francis William Biden.
