Quote from Yusov: "Today we have information that in Kherson the occupiers have mined vital communications, including the gas, electricity and water supply.
This is a terror and scorched-earth strategy that the Russians are preparing for before the inevitable counteroffensive of Ukrainian forces in the south."
Details: Yusov emphasised that "this strategy will definitely not work."
Previously: Earlier, Ivan Fedorov, the mayor of Melitopol, reported that the occupiers threatened to blow up the city's infrastructure in the event of a counteroffensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
