Ukrainian residents in Kherson tell Russian forces to 'go home' as they confront military vehicles

Two military vehicles bearing Russian markings were filmed by residents of Kherson, Ukraine. They then confronted peacefully and told those inside to “go home”.

Some demonstrators waved Ukrainian flags, while others had flags draped across their shoulders.

A video taken by Reuters shows protesters marching along Ushakova Avenue and calling for the forces to stop. The vehicles are shown reversing and then turning around, giving the impression that they have left the area.

Russia took the southern port city in the almost month-long war. Moscow claims that it now controls the Kherson region.

This comes as Iryna Vereshchuk, Ukraine’s deputy prime Minister, said that planned humanitarian aid for the capital could not be delivered due to Russian troops stopping trucks on the road.
