Details: The president said that Russian soldiers and mercenaries who had been left behind in Kherson Oblast are being detained; sabotage units are being neutralised.

"Investigators have recorded more than 400 Russian war crimes; bodies of civilians and military personnel who had been killed are being found," he reported.

Zelenskyy additionally said that "stabilisation" would be ensured, and law and order would return to 226 cities, towns and villages in Kherson Oblast with a total population of "over 100,000 people, as of now."
