As Ukrainian servicemen on Thursday (December 1) patrolled near apartment blocks badly damaged by Russian shelling, one resident vented her fury at Russia and President Vladimir Putin.
“When will those Russians die? My God. May Putin die with them. How long could it last?” Said Inna Sydorchuk, a resident of one of the damaged apartment blocks.
"Ukraine will win. We will get through it. Ukrainian Armed Forces onward, may they kill those vermin."
Locals hugged Ukrainian servicemen and asked not to leave Kherson. The soldiers shared water and provisions.
The shelling disconnected Kherson residents from newly restored electricity, according to Yaroslav Yanushevych, Kherson governor.
“Last night we got disconnected from gas, water, and electricity,” said one local resident who refused to give her name.
President Volodymyr Zelenskiy accused Russia of incessantly shelling Kherson, the southern Ukrainian city that it abandoned earlier this month.
