Viktor Yagun: why Russia keeps “special troops” in Kherson
Russians will change into civilian clothes to enter the rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and carry out sabotage, Viktor Yagun predicts.
The occupiers will not just hand over Kherson and are preparing for street fighting.
This opinion was expressed by Major General of the SBU in reserve, Viktor Yagun, on the air of the Espresso TV channel.
“Very specific Russian troops remain in Kherson – these are paratroopers and marines, which mobilized ones reinforce. And this suggests that the enemy wants to arrange some interesting things, I won’t say Stalingrad, rather street battles to drag Ukraine into confrontation for a long time and use their specific knowledge,” Yagun said.
The general noticed that the Russians cleared Kherson from the local population for this, so there would be no information about these troops. At the same time, the rashists will change into civilian clothes to enter the rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and carry out sabotage, Yagun believes.
“Some of our fighters, who were trained in the UK, studied to clean up large cities and fight in large conglomerates. Therefore, I do not exclude that these units will clean up our Kherson from enemy gangs, because it will be difficult to call them troops,” Yagun noted.
The situation in the Kherson region:
- The enemy evacuated the officers from Berislav.
- The expert noted that the Russians partially withdraw their troops from the Kherson region at night. At the same time, the head of the GUR, Kirill Budanov, said that the invaders were preparing to defend themselves in Kherson and not flee the city.
- Russians rob the region, and take out valuables.
- As of October 21, 88 settlements have been liberated in the Kherson region.
