Russian forces leave town in southern Kherson region -Ukrainian military

Russian forces have left the town of Nova Kakhovka in southern Kherson region, the Ukrainian military's General Staff said on Thursday.

"As of 22nd March 2023, all units of the occupying army that had been deployed in the town of Nova Kakhovka in Kherson region, have left the city," the General Staff said in its evening report outlining conditions on the front lines.

The town is located on the east bank of the Dnipro River, where Russian forces redeployed last November after abandoning positions on the west bank in the face of a counter-offensive by Ukrainian troops.

The report said Russian troops had stolen appliances, valuables, clothing and mobile telephones from nearby houses as they departed.
