Putin Endorses Evacuations From Kherson Region Amid Protracted Ukraine Offensive



Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly endorsed the evacuation of civilians from parts of Ukraine’s southern Kherson region on Friday, Nov. 4. as Kiev continues its offensive to retake the province, or oblast.

“Now, of course, those who live in Kherson should be removed from the zone of the most dangerous actions, because the civilian population should not suffer,” Putin told pro-Kremlin activists as he marked Russia’s Day of National Unity.
