KYIV/KHARKIV Ukraine (Reuters) – Russian troops have invaded the Ukrainian city Kherson, and entered the Council Building. This was after a day when conflicting claims were made about Moscow’s first major victory in the invasion of Ukraine that started eight days ago.

While Moscow may not have overthrown Kyiv’s government through its attack, it is believed that thousands were injured or died in this attack. It could also cause another serious economic impact on the world still recovering from the coronavirus epidemic.

More than 870,000 Europeans have fled because of the largest attack against a European country since 1945. The barrage of sanctions on Russia prompted fears about wider West-West conflict for many decades.

Kherson’s Black Sea port, which is home to around 250,000 residents, is located strategically where the Dnipro River empties into the Black Sea. Moscow would then be the first city to lose its significance.

Russia’s defense ministry stated Wednesday that they had captured Kherson, but an adviser to President Volodymyr Zeleskiy later said that the Ukrainian side was still defending the site.

On Wednesday night, Mayor Igor Kolykhayev stated that Russian troops had been deployed to the streets.

He stated that there were “armed visitors” at the city’s executive committee. My team and I were peaceful people. We had no weapons, and we didn’t face any aggression.

“I made no promises to them… “I asked them to not shoot people,” he said.

Russia describes its actions against Ukraine as “special operations”. It is not intended to invade territory, but destroy the military capabilities of neighboring countries and capitulate what it considers dangerous nationalists. The Russian government denies that it is targeting civilians.
