Under Russian control, Kherson blocks access to the rest of Ukraine – 05/28/2022

ROME, May 28 (ANSA) – The puppet government of Kherson Province, the only government occupied by Russia since the beginning of the invasion, has blocked access to the rest of Ukraine.

According to the deputy head of the new pro-Moscow administration in the region, Kirill Strimosov, the “border” was closed “for security reasons.” “We advise against traveling to Ukraine, whatever the motives,” he added.

The blockade includes the borders with the Mykolaiv and Dnipropetrovsk provinces, both of which are under Ukrainian control. However, it is possible to travel to the Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014, and to the territory of the neighboring Zaporizhzhya province, which was occupied by Moscow.

Kherson Province has already started using the ruble along with the Ukrainian currency, the hryvnia, and its new government plans to apply for membership in the Russian Federation.

Kherson is located at the mouth of the Dnipro River, the gateway to Crimea, and was occupied by Russia at the beginning of the invasion. Due to its strategic location, it could be used as a base for a possible attack against Odessa, the main port city of Ukraine. (Ansa).
