Ukrainian Forces Enter Kherson as Russia Completes Retreat


Ukraine’s forces swept into the key southern city of Kherson on Friday, after Russian troops completed their withdrawal from the regional capital in one of the largest strategic and symbolic defeats for the Kremlin since it launched its invasion.

Cheering Ukrainians welcomed the arriving troops and raised their national flag in a public square in the center of Kherson, the only regional capital that Russia had seized since February, according to videos posted online by Ukrainian officials. A crowd of jubilant residents hoisted Ukrainian soldiers on their shoulders. Residents also raised a European Union flag, a sign of many Ukrainians’ longstanding aspirations to forge closer ties with the bloc.
