The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, spoke about measures to stabilize and restore law and order in the settlements of the Kherson region freed from Russian occupation.

He spoke about this during his traditional evening address on Sunday, November 13.

According to him, we are talking about 226 settlements in which more than 100,000 local residents currently live.

"We are restoring communication, internet, television.

We are doing everything to restore normal technical capabilities for electricity and water supply as soon as possible.

We will bring back transport and mail.

We will bring back ambulance and normal medicine," the president assured.

Zelenskyi said that the restoration of the work of the authorities, the police, and some private companies has already begun.

"I thank the business, which is among the first to participate in the return of normal life," he said.

At the same time, he appealed to local residents not to forget that the situation in the Kherson region is still very dangerous. 

"First of all, these are mines.

Unfortunately, one of our sappers was killed, and four others were injured while clearing mines.

I ask all residents of Kherson to be very careful and immediately inform the rescuers about all dangerous objects," the president emphasized.

Zelenskyi also noted that the detention of Russian soldiers and mercenaries who were left on this territory, as well as the neutralization of saboteurs, is still ongoing.

Separately, he reported on the crimes committed by the occupiers in the Kherson region, promising that every murderer would be found and brought to justice.

"Investigators have already documented more than 400 Russian war crimes, the bodies of those killed - both civilians and military - have been found.

In the Kherson region, the Russian army left behind the same atrocities as in other regions of our country, where it was able to enter," the Ukrainian leader noted.

We will remind, the head of Kherson OVA, Yaroslav Yanushevich, called on the citizens not to gather in crowded places because of the enemy mines that the occupiers left behind.
