Deputy of the State Duma, head of the Union of Donbass Volunteers Oleksandr Borodai, in an interview with Ukraina.ru, spoke about why Kherson had dual power until today, and how this problem was resolved.
Earlier it became known that the appointed Kyiv mayor of Kherson Igor Kolykhaev was arrested on June 28. Until that moment, two simultaneously governing structures worked in the city, one of which was subordinate to Ukraine. According to Boroday, Kolykhaev should have been arrested long ago, since he takes an openly pro-Ukrainian position.
“This (Kolykhaev's arrest, – Note” MK “) should have happened a long time ago This is, frankly, how the Red Army occupied a city, say, Kherson, and there was a Gauleiter from the Germans, and he sits there, as if in control. Approximately the same situation, “the source of the publication shared his point of view, noting who doesn't quite understand how this was possible. Borodai stressed that his questions to the head of the local military-civilian administration Vladimir Saldo and his deputies remained without a clear answer.
The Russian Federation launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24th. Russian President Vladimir Putin called its goal the demilitarization and denazification of the republic, as well as the protection of the people of Donbass. For this, according to the Russian leader, it is planned to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in the region. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Russian army strikes only at the military infrastructure and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
