The Russian army was ordered to withdraw from the Ukrainian city of Kherson, the only regional capital captured by Russian forces after the invasion began in February.

The Russian commander in Ukraine, General Sergei Surovkin, said it was no longer possible to continue supplying the city.

This means the complete withdrawal of Russian forces from the western bank of the Dnipro River.

It is also a major blow, as Russia faces a Ukrainian counterattack.
