Putin says Kherson should be evacuated immediately

MOSCOW, November 4: Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that it is important to evacuate residents of Kherson immediately from the most dangerous areas.

“Now, of course, it is necessary to evacuate those who live in Kherson from the most dangerous zone, because civilians should not suffer from bombing, some offensive, counter-offensive and other measures related to military activities,” the head of state said. .

The Russian leader laid flowers together with participants of youth and volunteer organizations at the monument to Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky in Moscow’s Red Square earlier Friday on Russia’s Unity Day, celebrated on November 4, and spoke to young people.

The Russian president laid flowers at the monument to Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky, which was opened after reconstruction in Moscow’s Red Square, on Friday on the Day of Russian Unity.

The president had previously said that at the beginning of the 17th century, the country was on the verge of losing its sovereignty, but the people of Russia did not allow this and, after uniting in the militia army led by Minin and Pozharsky, defended their homeland. .

National Unity Day

National Unity Day is one of the youngest public holidays in Russia. It was created in 2005 and replaced the Day of Accord and Reconciliation, which was celebrated on November 7 since 1996.

Unity Day commemorates the events of 1612, when the militia army led by merchant Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky liberated Moscow from Polish invaders.


The flow of volunteers willing to join the Russian armed forces continues, and the number of mobilized reservists has reached 318,000 men, the president said during an interview with volunteers on Friday.

“We already have 318,000 [mobilized men]. Why do we have this number of 318,000? It is because volunteers are joining the ranks. The number of volunteers does not stop,” the head of state said.

As the Russian leader explained, of this number, 49,000 men have already joined the troops and are carrying out combat missions, while everyone else is still undergoing training.
