Details: Prokudin maintains that more than 800 bomb disposal experts inspect Kherson Oblast every day – in March of last year, there were only 80.

Background:

  • The right bank of Kherson Oblast, including the city of Kherson, was liberated by Ukraine’s Armed Forces in the autumn of 2022. A portion of the region on the Dnipro River's left bank is still temporarily controlled by Russian forces.
  • The city of Kherson and other settlements of the oblast suffer daily from Russian attacks.
