Russian soldiers confront Ukrainian protestors in Kherson
During this war, protests have erupted in the port city of Kherson, which has been occupied by Russian forces. Kherson is currently the only major city in Ukraine to be taken by invading forces.
Twitter posts and news reports reported that tens of thousands of people took part in the march in Kherson on Saturday, waving Ukrainian flags, singing the national anthem, waving flags, and chanting slogans like "Russians go home."
Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba shared a video of the protesters on Twitter, wishing to inspire the world with their bravery against armed Russian invaders.
In another video, which was reported to have been taken in Kherson, a Russian tank seized by Ukrainians could be seen rolling along a street, with someone on top waving a Ukrainian flag as onlookers cheered.
“We are trying not to go outside because Russian troops are stopping cars, checking what is in the cars. They are even checking phones, searching for evidence of helping the Ukrainian army,” he added.
There is no morale crisis-they have simply lost the will to fight and kill civilians. Armed forces are given orders to shoot civilians, fire on civilians, loot shops, rape people - but this army has lost its desire to fight."
Over 10,000 Russian soldiers have been killed during the invasion, according to the Ukrainian Defense Council, which marked the tenth day of the invasion. There were 498 deaths on the Russian side.
