- This week, Ukraine recalled the events of a year ago, when the Ukrainian Armed Forces regained control over Kherson during the counteroffensive in the south of the country. This is the only regional center that was captured by the Russian military after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion. In the fall of 2022, against the backdrop of the Ukrainian offensive, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered the withdrawal of troops from Kherson on November 9. Two days later, the Ukrainian authorities announced the liberation of the city.
